Home Equity
Line of Credit

If you need financing to finish your basement, consolidate credit card debt or buy a new car, a Home Equity Line of Credit from Mountain America might be right for you.


A Home Equity Line of Credit—Think Outside the Home

First, a quick explanation: A HELOC, as it’s been nicknamed, is a line of revolving credit that uses the available equity in your home. You’ve earned that equity, thanks to hard work and time—don’t forget you can use it, if necessary.

And here’s a good piece of news—interest rates on a home equity credit line are typically lower than a standard credit card.

In other words, it’s another useful tool to eliminate credit card debt, remodel the kitchen, buy a car or relieve other financial obligations. Many HELOC customers use it for:
  • Debt consolidation
  • Educational costs
  • Medical expenses
  • Start-up business expenditures
  • Vehicle purchases
  • Home renovations

Some key facts about a HELOC:

A HELOC is much like a credit card or any other type of open-ended credit. You can borrow money as needed, up to the credit limit, just by using your Mountain America Equity Visa® Card. There is no need to reapply. Plus, unlike almost any other type of consumer loan, the interest on a home equity loan may be tax deductible.**
