What is a HELOC?
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 loan on your own time whenever and however you need it.
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.
