So much more than a home improvement loan.
A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) can give you the money you need for a new patio just in time for summer or that fully renovated bathroom with dual vanities. But the power of a HELOC extends well beyond your front (or back) door. It’s your personal fund to use for whatever you need, whenever you need it—inside or outside your front door. From paying off high-interest debt to paying for the cost of college, your home secures the money, and it's up to you what to do with it.
Don't underestimate the equity and power you have in your home.

Although they’re great for home improvements and fixes, Home Equity Lines of Credit can be used for anything you want. From a new deck to consolidating high-interest debt, they have the ability to stabilize not just your home, but your finances, too.
The real beauty of a HELOC is that interest is only charged on the line when you withdraw money from it. And even then, that interest is only based on the amount outstanding—so it’s like a credit card in that respect.
Take advantage of interest rates much lower than and credit limits much higher than personal loans or credit cards. In fact, you can borrow as little as $5,000 and as much as $500,000 based on the value of your home minus existing mortgages and any other liens.
