Need some extra cash now? You have until June 30th, 2024 to tap into your home's equity with no closing costs!*

 

If you already own a home, now is a great time to use the equity that you might have built up.  Equity is the difference between how much the home is worth and how much you owe on the mortgage. FedChoice offers both Home Equity Loans and Home Equity Lines of Credit - not sure which one is right for you?^ Take a look below for a quick recap!

One Time Cash

A home equity loan might be best if you plan to use the money for a one-time occasion such as a home repair, purchasing a car, paying for your daughter’s wedding, or consolidating debt. 

Line-of-Credit You Can Draw On

If you plan to use the money periodically and not all at once, you may want to look at a home equity line-of-credit. It's a great option if you’re doing a remodeling project and the contractor will be paid in several installments or you’ll be making tuition payments at the beginning of each semester. A home equity line-of-credit is a credit line much like a credit card, giving you the flexibility to borrow what you need when you need it.

With interest rates on the rise, our Home Equity Loans and Lines of Credit are one of the smartest ways to spend. And better yet, you pay no closing costs through June 30, 2024.
