How does a Home Equity Line-of-Credit work?

A home equity line of credit, also known as a HELOC, is a line of credit secured by your home. You get a revolving credit line to use for large expenses or to consolidate higher-interest rate debt on other loans such as credit cards. With an AFFCU Home Equity Line-of-Credit, you may draw on your variable-rate line of credit whenever you need.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your credit limit will depend on the amount of equity in your home, your credit history and property location. Another factor is your loan-to-value (LTV) ratio, which is the relationship between your current mortgage loan balance and the value of your home. Find out how much you may be able to borrow with our home equity line of credit calculator above.

Available credit is based on your loan-to-value ratio, with a maximum of to 80% loan-to-value. After borrowing you will still be required to have at least 20% equity left in your home.

The variable interest rate is based on the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate as published in the Money Rates section.

You can borrow as little as $15,000 or up to $750,000 depending on your credit history, available equity in the property and your current monthly debt.

A Home Equity Line of Credit has two different periods, a draw period and repayment period. The draw period is 10 years, where you have ongoing access to available funds and can use the funds how you’d like. During the draw period, you have to make predetermined minimum monthly payments of the outstanding balance. Once the draw period ends, the account enters the repayment period.

During the repayment period, you can no longer advance on the home equity line of credit, and must make principal and interest payments. The new minimum payment will ensure the balance is paid in full by the maturity date. The interest rate on the balance continues to be variable.
