Maximize the value of your home
At GOLD Credit Union, we can help you leverage your most valuable asset — your home — to reach your biggest goals. From remodeling your home to consolidating high-interest debt, you'll boost your spending power with GOLD Home Equity Loans and Lines of Credit.
So, what's home equity, anyway? It's the difference between your home's market value and the remaining balance on your first mortgage and any other mortgages or home equity loans secured by your home. Your home equity can increase over time if the property value increases or the loan balance is paid down. While we caution against using your home as collateral for smaller, short-term borrowing needs, it can be a wise move to lower the long-term cost and monthly impact of larger high-interest debt, larger investments, or large, surprise expenses that you encounter.
Which home equity product should I pick?
GOLD Credit Union offers our Members two home equity products:
Each has its advantages. A GOLD Home Equity Loan, for instance, give you a one-time payout with a fixed rate, which is perfect for a large purchase. On the other hand, our GOLD Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) gives you more flexibility, letting you borrow as needed and only pay on the funds you use.
Both feature competitive APRs, generous limits, and flexible terms.
Compare your options below to see which is the best fit for you.
