Home Equity Loans
We work with homeowners in Connecticut to support their financial needs by using some of the equity in their home. The amount of the loan relies on the current market value of your house. Terms from 5 – 15 years are available with either a fixed rate, a variable rate, or a combination – a fixed rate term that converts to variable. The funds are disbursed in one lump sum at the start of the loan and repayment is a fixed amount each month.
Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
This product shares many of the basic traits of a Home Equity Loan, the amount of the line is based on the current market value of your house. The term is a total of 20 years. The first ten years you can draw on the line and make interest-only payments. The last ten years is repayment of principal and interest and you can not access available funds. The interest rate is variable, based on the Prime Rate published in the Wall Street Journal. Funds can be accessed conveniently using checks, your HELOC credit card (optional), our 24-hour touch-tone-teller, or by speaking to a Member Service Representative.
