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 call 740-597-2800 to have an application sent by mail.

Home Equity Line of Credit

Your home can help:

  • Major remodeling, new roof or finished basement
  • Consolidate higher-interest rate debt
  • Prepare or pay for emergencies

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
  • Easy access through 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

Access is easy! Through online banking 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
