Nearly everyone has a vision of how their lives would be better if they just had a little more money. Well, it's time to stop dreaming and start doing. At Florida Credit Union, we offer flexible home equity loans and lines of credit that put those extra finances at your fingertips. And with no annual fee, fixed or variable interest rates available, and flexible repayment options, you can get what you want, or need, without putting a big dent in your monthly budget.

When it comes to utilizing the equity in your home, the opportunities are endless. While you might want to use that money on home improvements like remodeling, there are lots of other ways you could benefit from a home equity loan. Here are some other common uses:

  • Consolidate your bills into one low monthly payment
  • Finance your child’s education
  • Take that dream vacation
  • Fund major life events, like a wedding
  • Buy big-ticket items like furniture, artwork or antiques

Take the market value of your home and subtract the amount left on your mortgage, the difference is your home's equity. When that number becomes large enough, it can be used as collateral for either a low-interest home equity loan or line of credit. Here are the differences between the two:

  • Home Equity Loan (HEL) Borrow a fixed amount and receive your money in one lump sum. The credit limit you qualify for is based on your home’s loan-to-value ratio (equity), your mortgage payment term, your verifiable income and your credit history. Typically, it is repaid over a set amortization schedule and the interest expense may be tax deductible.
  • Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) This option works more like a credit card. You'll be able to borrow up to a certain amount over a certain period, commonly known as a draw period. During that time, you can withdraw money as you need it. As you pay down the principal balance, your credit revolves and you can use it again and you only pay interest on the amount borrowed.

Florida Credit Union offers a flexible, money-saving way to make your home work for you.

  • Variety of term options available to fit your budget
  • Low interest rates mean more of your money goes to pay down the principal
  • Up to 100% financing
  • Make payments online or at any FCU location

Apply for just one loan, but borrow time and again any time you need some extra money.

  • Up to 100% financing 
  • Link your HELOC to a Visa credit card
  • Low rates and with a variety of affordable payment options
  • Monitor your account and transaction details online
  • Easily transfer loan money into checking account with online banking.

Stop paying high interest charges and start putting more of your money towards the principal balance by transferring your home equity loan to Florida Credit Union. Our loan officers are available by phone 24/7, and they'll happily tell you everything you need to know about switching to FCU.

We know that life is unpredictable. To help you cope with misfortune, Florida Credit Union offers Payment Protection for your home equity loan. If you die, become disabled, or lose your job, your monthly loan payments can be cancelled without penalty or added interest. That means your finances and your credit rating will be protected during a trying time. The premium for your protection policy can be included in your loan, meaning you won't have to make additional monthly payments.
