What is a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)?

apply for a heloc  text us

A HELOC allows you to utilize the equity (value) of your home as collateral to receive a lower interest rate than a personal loan or credit card. This is a great option for financing larger purchases. Once you're approved for a HELOC, you can utilize the line of credit on your own time whenever and however you need it.  

Members with real estate loans who are experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19 are encouraged to reach out to us to discuss their options.

HELOC benefits:

How do you qualify for a HELOC?

You must have equity in your home to qualify for a HELOC. This means that the amount you owe on your home is less than what it is worth. 

To find out the value of your home, a great place to start is to look up the tax-assessed value. You can find this info at your county assessor's website:

You can also reach out to a Realtor to perform a market analysis.

Once you apply online, we'll just need your most recent paystub, your most recent mortgage statement, and a copy of your homeowner's insurance declaration page to get started.

​You can use HELOCs for things like:

You can access your HELOC online through Online Banking, give us a call at 509.328.2900 or stop by any of our branches.

A home equity line of credit or HELOC is a revolving line of credit that uses the value of your home as collateral. HELOCs are most commonly used for home improvement, debt consolidation, or other high costs like college tuition. Whereas, a home equity loan is a close-ended loan. As you pay off a home equity loan, the balance decreases and you no longer have access to the funds once it’s paid off.
We do offer a no fee HELOC option. However, if an appraisal is needed there would be an associated fee.
We have fixed and variable rate HELOCs available depending on your needs. We’d be happy to provide our rates over the phone at 509.328.2900, via text or in person! text us
You can utilize your HELOC for up to six years. If you still have a balance at the end of your draw period, don’t worry, we won’t adjust your payments. You’ll continue making your normal payments until the balance is paid off in full.
You can access your funds through Online Banking and make transfers directly from your HELOC to your Canopy checking account or you can give us a call at 509.328.2900 and we can do the transfer for you. You can also visit a Teller Connect Representative to withdraw cash from your HELOC.
You have approximately 15 years to pay off the balance in full.
Not in all instances. The tax assessed value of your home may be enough. If you have further questions, give us a call at 509.328.2900 and we’d be happy to discuss your options!
