Our home equity loans and lines of credit offer financial convenience. What is better, a home equity loan, or a line of credit?

With both products you are borrowing against the equity in your home, but there are key differences between the two. A home equity loan gives you a lump sum of money at one time, you then pay that amount back over a certain period of time. A home equity line of credit which is referred to as a HELOC loan, gives you a certain amount of money that you are able to draw from, pay back, and continue to use over a period of time. HELOC’s are convenient as they allow you to take what you need as you need it. HELOC’s also allow you to access the equity in your home simply by writing a check, via online banking or making a phone call to Deerwood Bank. With the flexibility of a home equity loan or HELOC, you can use these funds to purchase a vehicle or boat, finance an education, or tackle those home improvement projects that you have been dreaming about. Once your line of credit is in place, you can borrow from it, time and time again. Interest may be tax deductible, so consult with your tax advisor for possible tax advantages.
