You've put a lot into your home — money, time, sweat effort, and more — all of which is likely a great investment. When you're in need of funds for your next big expense, turn to Atlantic Financial FCU and put your home to work for you. A home equity line-of-credit is available for all our members regardless if they live in Baltimore, MD, the Greater-Baltimore area or elsewhere.

A home equity line of credit, also referred to as a "HELOC", is a second mortgage that gives you access to cash, based on the equity in your home. Equity is the value of your home less the balance remaining on your mortgage. This difference determines the amount of cash you could have access to.

The most common reason to get a home equity line-of-credit is for a reinvestment into your house for major purchases like remodeling, upgrades, or repairs that ultimately help increase the value of your home. While you are free to choose what you do with the money, it is recommended to avoid using funds for things like vacations, new cars, etc, but rather to reinvest in projects that will help you build more wealth and increase the value of your home.

Partner with Atlantic Financial FCU for help turning your home's equity into budget-friendly financing for your needs. Let AFFCU develop a customized financing solution to meet your needs by working with our friendly, experienced lending team who provide prompt, local decision-making and processing.
