Home improvements, lower credit card bills, college, even a special vacation: Imagine all the things your home could do for you.
Yes, homeownership comes with significant cost. But, it's also the best investment you can make.
A low-interest home equity line of credit (HELOC) is one of the best – and easiest – ways to take advantage of your most valuable asset. Your HELOC uses your home's value to put cash on hand for whatever you want, whenever you need it.
Unlike a home equity loan, a HELOC acts more like a credit card. You only take and pay interest on what you use. Browse our helpful articles and consider our competitive rates and flexible terms to determine if a Visions HELOC is the right move for you.
How does it work?
You've worked to build equity in your home. It's an investment, and a home equity line of credit can be the return.
A HELOC tends to have lower rates than other loans because the value you've built in your home acts as security. And the interest you pay on many home equity loans is tax-deductible, helping you save twice.
ANY PURPOSE HELOC
A home equity line of credit with Visions lets you unlock your equity. This means the current market value of your home minus any first mortgage balance.
You've earned it, now use it. Your HELOC is there for what you need, when you need it: college expenses, home improvements, consolidation, or any other major expense.
With low rates and flexible options, a HELOC with Visions makes your home's equity work for you.
