Home equity loan options.*
Home equity line of credit.
Your home equity line of credit at STCU is ready when you are, and available (upon approval) on your primary, secondary, or vacation home in Washington, Idaho, or Oregon.
How HELOCs work.
A HELOC is a variable rate, open-ended loan, meaning you borrow as you go, as opposed to a fixed-rate home equity loan (see below). You can withdraw funds and repay as needed during a 10-year draw period. Once that draw period expires, your loan enters a 20-year repayment period with principal and interest payments.
- Make large purchases at a competitive rate.
- Draw cash anytime within 10 years after you open your line of credit.
- Lock in a fixed rate on draws of $5,000 or more, so you don't have to worry about rising rates. (Up to three draws available at one time!)
Appraisal costs, if needed, can be built into your loan and interest-only minimum payments are available during your draw period.
Fixed-rate home equity loan.
Borrow the equity you've already established in your primary, secondary, or vacation home in Washington, Idaho, or Oregon for projects and expenses you need. Receive one lump sum at a fixed rate, with any loan costs built right into your financing, so you'll always know your monthly payment.
Anything is possible with your STCU home equity loan. Apply today!
Tax deductions may still apply!
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 restricted deductions on mortgages, but taxpayers can often still deduct interest on a home equity loan or home equity line of credit if the money borrowed is used to buy, build, or substantially improve the home that secures the loan. Read the IRS news release and consult your tax advisor.
