A HELOC, or Home Equity Line of Credit, is a revolving line of credit that lets you borrow funds based on the equity you have in your home. Equity is determined by taking the current market value of your home and subtracting what you owe on that home (including your first mortgage and any second mortgage or home equity loan). You only pay interest on the funds you have withdrawn, and have a convenient line of quick-access cash should the need arise. HELOC’s are a great option for:
Because a HELOC is a secured loan, you can utilize the equity in your home to borrow at a lower rate than using a personal loan or credit card. The State CS HELOC features a 5-year draw period, rates as low as Prime Index and no application or origination fees.
We offer the option to convert balances from your variable-rate HELOC into a fixed-rate repayment option. There is a minimum balance requirement of $5,000 to convert, and may have no more than three fixed-rate options with outstanding balances at a time. You may still take advances against your line at the variable rate.
*The HELOC is an adjustable rate product, rates are adjusted semi-annually on the first business day of January and July; not to exceed 15% APR. Rates vary by credit quality and collateral. Closing costs may include appraisal, doc prep or recording fees. Minimum $5,000 draw at opening required. Minimum monthly payment of $50. Property must be in NY, property insurance is required.
