Home Equity loans & LINES OF CREDIT

The equity in your home could be cash in hand for remodeling, repair or other improvements to your home, purchasing a new car, tuition bills, medical bills, debt consolidation, or whatever reason you need a loan.

Each program is structured around the equity in your home to borrow a fixed amount or you can establish a line of credit. Rates are reasonable and we can tailor the payments to suit your convenience. These are flexible tools which allow you to obtain cash up front or draw funds on an as-needed basis.

The interest rate is typically lower with a home equity loan than an unsecured loan, and the interest may be tax deductible. Please consult your tax advisor.

Fixed-Rate mortgages

Feel secure knowing your interest rate and payment will not change over the life of your loan.

Build your dream home. These short-term loans allow interest-only payments during construction. Make draws as expenses are incurred, with lower payments during the loan period.  When construction is completed, we can convert to a fixed-rate loan.
  • Purchase your lot now and build later with a lot loan.
