How Does a Home Equity Loan Work?
You can borrow from the equity in your home with a home equity loan. With a home equity loan, you get the funds in one lump sum. This makes a home equity loan a great option for financing life’s big expenses.
When applying for a home equity loan, a Westar loan specialist will talk with you about your home’s fair market value. We’ll also take a look at what you owe on your mortgage to figure out how much you can borrow for your home equity loan. Westar Federal Credit Union allows you to tap into the equity of your home in one of two ways:
- Home Equity Loans – borrow from your home’s equity for a fixed amount of time
- Borrow from your home’s equity any time life demands it with a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
Is a home equity loan right for you? Your neighbors at Westar Federal Credit Union can answer any questions you may have, taking the time to discuss your options in a way that makes sense for you and your budget.
