How to Apply for a HELOC

A HELOC, or Home Equity Line of Credit, leverages your home’s equity to give you more flexibility compared to other loans — you can borrow up to your maximum credit limit, when you need it, as you need it. Whether you’re planning a kitchen remodel, upgrading to energy efficient appliances, consolidating debt, or simply want the peace of mind that it’s there to cover an emergency, a HELOC is the perfect pairing for your mortgage.
