What is the difference between a Fixed Rate Home Equity Loan and a Home Equity Line of Credit?
Both are based on the equity you have built up in your home. SECNY FCU will lend up to 90% of the appraised value of your home, subtracting any existing liens being kept. Consolidate bills, make home improvements, finance your child's education and more! Life and Disability Insurance is available upon request.
Fixed Rate Home Equity Loan
With our Fixed Rate Home Equity Loan, you receive the money you are borrowing all at once and repay it over a set amount of time, at a fixed interest rate. There are no draws available with this loan type. This is a great option if you are considering consolidating debt, paying for education expenses or home improvements such as windows, roofing or driveway.
A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a variable rate loan that allows you to take draws on the line of credit as you need it. The payments are based on the principal and interest of the amount used. This is the perfect loan type for home improvements such as remodeling the interior parts of your home because it gives you the flexibility use it as you go and pay only on what is used. Refer to the Home Equity Early Disclosures for details.
