Home Equity Loans

The possibilities are endless with a Reliant home equity line of credit or home equity loan.

Let’s get started by defining what “equity” means when it comes to a loan. Equity is the difference between how much your home is worth and how much you owe on any existing mortgages.

 A Home Equity Line of Credit – also known as a HELOC – or a Home Equity Loan allows you to borrow money using your home’s equity as collateral. HELOCs and home equity loans are often used to finance major expenses such as home repairs, college education, a wedding or a major trip. These types of loans also allow for possible tax deduction so that you keep more of your hard earned money. (Consult your tax advisor.)


What is the difference between a HELOC and a Home Equity Loan?

A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a revolving line of credit, much like a credit card. You can borrow as much as you need, any time you need it, by taking an advance through online banking, in person, at an ATM, over the phone at 800-724-9282, or with HELOC checks. You may not exceed your credit limit. Because a HELOC is a line of credit, you make payments only on the amount you actually borrow, not the full amount available. 

A Home Equity loan is a loan for a fixed amount of money. You repay the loan with equal monthly payments over a fixed term, just like with your mortgage payment.
