Is a Home Equity loan right for you

Is a Home Equity Loan Right for You?
Is your home worth more than what you owe on it? Have you been thinking about taking out a loan for an upcoming expense, such as a kitchen remodel or even a child’s college expenses? If so, then you may want to consider a home equity loan as a viable option for borrowing the money you need at a surprisingly low interest rate. At Santa Clara County Federal Credit Union, we’re proud to offer home equity loans at low fixed rates.

What You Need to Know About Home Equity Loans

Essentially, a home equity loan works by allowing you to borrow against your home’s current value in the form of a second mortgage. For homeowners with substantial equity in their home, this allows them to borrow large sums of money that can be used for just about any purpose. Because your loan is secured by an asset (your home), many applicants are able to get approved for much lower interest rates than they would with an unsecured loan.

If you’re interested in taking out a home equity loan, it’s important to find a lender you can trust.
