Equity Loans

Put your home to work for you! If you’re a homeowner, you can tap into the equity in your home as a form of credit.  When you subtract the balance owed on your mortgage from the value of your home, you get the equity in your home which can be used for a home equity loan or home equity line of credit.

Considered a second mortgage, these loans generally have lower interest rates that may even be tax deductible (check with your tax peeps on tax-deductible interest). An appraisal may be needed and closing costs will be required.

At Ascentra, you may be able to borrow up to 100% of your home’s equity, giving you endless opportunities!

  • Home Equity Loan

    A Home Equity Loan has a fixed rate and term that allows you to make scheduled payments that fit your monthly spending plan for a set amount of time. This is a great option when you know exactly how much you need! With a Home Equity loan you can pay for major home renovations, consolidate high interest debt or even pay for college expenses.

  • Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)

    When you want the flexibility to access funds and use them when needed over a period of time, a HELOC may be the better option for you.  First you get approved for a total amount based on your equity, and then you can transfer funds from your HELOC to your checking account when you need it. These funds are ready when you are, similar to a credit card. Get a line of credit from $5,000 to $250,000 with a low variable interest rate and take up to 20 years to pay off the loan.
