How are my HELOC payments determined?

Your payment will be 1.5% of the amount borrowed. If you have a credit limit of $20,000, but only draw out $5,000, you would pay 1.5% on the $5,000 balance. If you have an interest-only HELOC, the monthly payment will be the interest accrued during the month.

Can I get a HELOC for my second home or one of my investment properties?

We do not offer HELOCs for investment properties; however, you can get a HELOC for a second home if the property meets our eligibility standards. Eligible property types include primary residences and second homes (located at least 50 miles from the primary residence) owned for at least 6 months. Properties must be one of the following: single-family homes, 2-4-unit condominiums, owner-occupied duplexes, or townhouses.
