HOME EQUITY LINE of CREDIT
If you’re a homeowner who has accumulated equity, you may be able to use it for the cash you need with a BSV Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC). Applying is easy, and for a limited time we are offering our BSV customers a HELOC with no application fee and no closing costs!* If you never draw on the funds, that’s ok; but if a need or emergency arises, money will be readily available to you.
How do I know if I have equity?
The amount you may be able to borrow is based on several factors such as market value of the property, your credit history, loan characteristics, and property location. To get a general idea of your available equity for financing purposes, use our HELOC Calculator on this page. You will need your home’s current value (your tax assessment may be a good estimate) and your current mortgage balance. Enter 80% for the loan to value (LTV). It’s that easy!
How does a BSV HELOC work?
A HELOC is a revolving line of credit that’s secured by your home. Once the HELOC is opened, you can advance as much cash as you need, up to your approved credit limit. You choose when you want to borrow money and how you want to advance the funds. There are infinite scenarios that may leave you in need of a quick infusion of cash. With a HELOC, you have flexibility and the security of knowing funds are available at any time.
Here are the ways a BSV HELOC can simplify your life:
