Why should I get a Home Equity Line-of-Credit?
If you plan to use the money periodically and not all at once, you may want to obtain a home equity line-of-credit. For example, 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.
- Competitive variable interest rates.‡
- Lines-of-Credit are available up to $500,000.
- Lines are available up to 90% CLTV.+
- Interest may be tax deductible!^

Home Equity Lending provides a convenient source of funds for members who have a need for often significant levels of financing. A Home Equity Line is a Line-of-Credit secured by the equity in your home. At FedChoice, our Home Equity Lines have a ten (10) year draw period and then a fifteen (15) year re-payment period. What this means is that you can borrow on and pay down your line as often as you would like during the first 10 years. At the end of the 10 years, you can’t borrow any more but you have 15 years to pay off the balance.
