Fixed-rate Home Equity Line of Credit

Choose a fixed rate for the term of your Home Equity Line of Credit and make interest only payments for the first five years.

Whether you're working on a long-term project or paying for college tuition, a fixed-rate Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) can give you quick access to cash when you need it at the same fixed rate for the full 15-year term of the line of credit. Loan amounts range from $5,000 to $350,000. With this line of credit you can also:

  • Borrow up to 80% of the equity in your home (the appraised value multiplied by 80%, less the remaining balance on any existing mortgage)
  • Access your credit line by transferring funds, using your SEFCU Home Equity Mastercard®, or writing a home equity check
  • Draw on your line anytime within five years of origination
  • Take up to 15 years to repay
  • Pay only the interest during the five-year draw period. (Rates will vary depending on credit worthiness and Combined Loan-to-Value ratio.)
  • Make your payments bi-weekly or monthly

At SEFCU you can draw on your home's equity at a competitive fixed rate for any purpose. We pay closing costs except NYS mortgage tax and title insurance when required*.
