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.* A Home Equity Line of Credit is a variable rate revolving credit line that allows you to borrow 80% to 95% of your home's value. Just use the amount you need, when you need it!

  • No annual fee
  • Prime plus 0% (80% LTV); prime plus 1.75% (over 80% and up to 95% LTV)
  • Interest may be tax deductible
"How much equity do I have?" Here's an example:
Appraised value of home $100,000
Multiply by 80% $ 80,000
Subtract balance of first mortgage loan - 60,000
Potential line of credit $ 20,000

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