Home Equity Lines & Loans

This is a great time to tackle that home remodeling project, consolidate higher rate debt or pay for those extra educational expenses. Be sure to check our out our new home equity rates and tiers! Apply in person or online through our MortgageClick service.

Home Equity Line of Credit

Any of these projects on your list?

  • Major remodeling, new roof or finished basement
  • Consolidate higher-interest rate debt
  • Pay for extra college tuition

If you're a homeowner, a Home Equity Line of Credit is one of the best ways to borrow because the interest may be tax deductible.* Get access to a revolving credit line that allows you to borrow up to 95% of your home's value. Just use the amount you need, when you need it!

  • No annual fee and low closing costs
  • Quick and easy access through CATS Online banking
  • Competitive variable rate of interest
  • Interest only payment options available
"How much equity do I have?" Here's an example:
Appraised value of home $100,000
Multiply by 95% $ 95,000
Subtract balance of first mortgage loan - 60,000
Potential line of credit $ 35,000

Accessibility. Access your line of credit through CATS Line, CATS Online, or with specially issued Home Equity Line of Credit checks.


Home Equity Loans

  • Competitive fixed rate of interest
  • Terms range from 5 to 15 years
  • Borrow up to 95% of the home's loan to value**
  • Interest rate is determined by the amount of equity and the term
