We want you to know about one of the best home equity lines of credit anywhere. Just compare it to those of other lenders.
Have the best of both worlds with a Fixed Rate Lock Option!
You may fix any portion of the used line of of credit up to 5 times for periods of up to 30 years. You will still be able to access any unused remaining credit line balance and as you pay down the fixed portion, it wil be added to available credit.
You can deduct the interest on your home equity line the same way you deduct your mortage interest.* That means the effective rate you pay after taxes is even lower. For example, the introductory rate of 7.00% APR will actually be 4.45% APR. So you can expand your family room, make tuirtion payments or buy a car - and get a tax deduction at the same time.
Lower monthly payments
For the first 10 years of your home equity line, you can make low, interest-only payments. So you consolidate balances you owe on credit cards and other loans...your monthly payment could be lower. And you pay interest only on the amount you've used - not the total amount of your line.
