Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)

Tap into your equity as you need it with a HELOC

The homeowner’s key to more financial flexibility

A HELOC is a smart way to access the equity in your home to help you reach your financial goals.

Use your HELOC to help tackle projects and expenses big and small. The possibilities are endless. Remodel your kitchen or bathroom, or create a new addition to your home. You can also use your equity to pay off higher interest rate debt or cover unexpected expenses as they arise.

With variable, interest only payments on what you borrow, and the option to lock in all or part of your balance into a fixed-rate2, a HELOC offers both flexibility and security for when you need it most.

Frequently Asked Questions

    A HELOC is a revolving line of credit that allows you to borrow against your home’s equity to access cash as you need it. With a HELOC, you have a specific amount that you can borrow from – this amount is your line of credit. In addition to choosing the amount you need to borrow (up to your maximum approved limit), you can also determine when and how many times you borrow, making this loan type more flexible for your financial needs. Plus, you only pay interest on what you borrow.

    In most cases, we can offer financing for up to 90% of your home’s value – which includes your first mortgage (if any) and your new HELOC. For example, if your property is worth $800,000 and you owe $500,000 on your first mortgage, you may be eligible for a HELOC up to $220,000. ($800,000 x 90% = $720,000. $720,000 – $500,000 = $220,000.) Keep in mind this depends on several other factors such as your loan approval, credit history and income. We recommend checking your rate first to pre-qualify.

    No. We’re proud to offer no application fees, no early closure fees, no annual fees, and no closing costs on lines up to $250,000.4

    You may be able to deduct interest you pay from your loan. We recommend consulting your tax advisor for specifics.

    It’s easy to use your HELOC for your financial needs. Choose what’s convenient for you:

    1. Make a withdrawal upon opening
    2. By physical check
    3. Online – transfer money from your HELOC into your checking or savings account anytime

    At this time, Patelco does not offer HELOCs for rental properties – only for primary residences. However, if you need to access cash for specific needs, you may want to explore our personal loans

1 Home Equity loans and lines of credit are available on California primary residences only. 9.00% APR (annual percentage rate) and other terms shown are accurate as of 03/15/2024 and apply to a HELOC for the most qualified applicant at CLTV up to 80%. Not all applicants will qualify for the lowest rate. Rates vary based on property value, line amount and other factors, and will vary for second or vacation homes. The minimum periodic payment is interest-only for the first ten years (“draw period”) followed by fully-amortizing payments to repay the balance over the final fifteen years. No draws will be allowed during the repayment period. Payments and rate can adjust monthly. Payments will increase if rates increase. At the end of the draw period, your required monthly payments will increase because you will be paying both principal and interest. The rate is calculated using an index plus a margin. The index used is the Prime Rate as published in The Wall Street Journal Western Edition on the last business day of the month prior to the change. The current prime index is 8.50%. Minimum interest rate is 3%. Maximum interest rate is 17%.

2 Rate and payments are based on Prime plus a margin. Changes to Prime will result in changes to the rate and payment. After your loan closes, you have the option to lock in a portion or all of your existing equity balance on your new Patelco Home Equity Line of Credit into a fixed rate at 10 or 15 years. Rates may vary and are subject to change. You may only have one fixed-rate option on either all or a portion of your balance at a time. Your fixed rate balance will reduce the amount of available credit for future draws on your equity line. Any future draws will be at the variable rate and payment in effect on your loan at the time of the draw. You will receive a separate statement and make separate principal and interest payments for the fixed-rate portion of your balance. The maximum term available for a fixed rate option is 15 years. Other restrictions may apply.

3 Patelco runs a “soft” credit pull to determine which pre-qualification offer you qualify for. This doesn’t affect your credit score. If you choose to proceed with a loan application, Patelco will request your full credit report from one or more credit reporting agencies. This will be a “hard” pull and may affect your credit. If necessary, we may also share certain information about you with third parties, like our insurers, to process your request.

4 0.50% HELOC rate discount available after loan funds. Meet and maintain ongoing discount eligibility with set up of automatic loan payments and monthly recurring deposits of $500 into a Patelco account. Additional conditions may apply. Speak to a Home Loan Consultant for more details.

Only these fees listed will be paid by Patelco Credit Union if the stated services are conducted through our preferred service providers. If conditions for the “No Closing Cost” program are not met, including the use of service providers associated with the program, then you will be responsible for any associated closing fees which will not be paid by Patelco Credit Union. The “No Closing Cost” program does not include extraordinary items, including but not limited to the following: residential real estate appraisals, additional credit reports for the same loan transaction, grant deeds and any associated notary or recording fees, missed appraisal appointments or ‘trip charges’ and any fees to close another account as the result of this Account.
