Home Equity Line of Credit

Transform the cash sitting in your home into a powerful line of credit

HELOC stands for Home Equity Line of Credit. We basically turn the equity you already have in your home into a line of credit that you can pull from when you need it. So your investment continues to grow, and you reserve your cash for other things - like sweet roller skates or a buffalo plaid dog leash.

Consider a HELOC if:

  • payments_black_24dp (1)

When you line up a HELOC with iQ, you’re doing business with a local organization with deep roots in our shared community. We truly care about taking good care of you. Let us help you get securely situated to handle whatever might come your way. In May and June 2021 we'll even cover those closing costs to keep more money in your pocket.*

Why Get a HELOC?

Turn the value of your home into cash because you’ve earned it.

You are a responsible homeowner. You have worked hard to buy your home, and you make regular mortgage payments. Why not turn your home value into cash with a simple home equity line of credit?

A HELOC lets you use the untapped value of your home into a line of credit you can access at any time. Consider the possibilities:

With a HELOC, you only pay interest on what you use. And iQ offers several options specifically designed to meet your financial needs. A HELOC is a great way to create a pool of ready cash to give you peace of mind. It’s ideal if you don’t know how much you may need and want financial flexibility or if you just want to tap your home equity without having to refinance.

HELOC FAQs

You can borrow up to 80% of the value of your home. If your home is worth $300,000 and your mortgage is $200,000, then the equity is $100,000, but you can only borrow up to $40,000 because 80% of the home value is $240,000. In some instances you can borrow more than 80% through a HELOC depending on your situation.

You can use a HELOC for almost anything, such as a home remodel, a down payment on another home, or to pay for an emergency. There are no restrictions on how you use the money. A HELOC has a lower interest rate than most credit cards and is ideal for debt consolidation.

Equity represents the amount of money you would receive upon the sale of your home. Equity is a reflection of the current market value of your home.

Why would I want a Home Equity Line Of Credit (HELOC) instead of refinancing my home?

A HELOC gives you more flexibility. If you refinance your home, you receive a one-time payment based on the market value of your home and the difference between your new home loan amount and your previous home loan. A HELOC gives you revolving credit, like a credit card. You use only as much as you need up to the maximum amount, and as you pay it back, you can use it again.

You can start the application online or by telephone. Contact one of the loan officers at any iQ Credit Union branch.

If you apply between August 11 - October 31 2021, all closing costs for the HELOC will be waived.
