Home Equity Line of Credit

Accomplish more with your Home Equity

Lock in a low rate for the first five years of your loan!

HELOC Advantage

5-Year Fixed Rate As Low As 3.25%

A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a low-cost alternative to high-interest consumer loans and credit cards. You can borrow up to 90% of your home's appraised value* to do things you want to do, such as start home improvements, take a long-overdue vacation or even pay off your credit card debt.

Since a HELOC is a revolving line of credit, it allows you to access your funds any time. If you already have an existing HELOC with us, increasing your current credit limit is easy — just apply for your new amount.

 

Does my home qualify for a HELOC?

A HELOC is secured by a Deed of Trust on one to four family homes or a condominium within California, and must be in first or second position on the property. If you have questions about your home’s eligibility, you are welcome to contact us to discuss your options. 

 

How much can I borrow?

You may borrow up to 90% of the appraised value of your owner occupied home, less the balance of your first mortgage, if any. The Southland HELOC features a 10-year draw period with interest-only minimum payments.

Southland's HELOC offers a variety of convenient features, including cash advances any time up to your available credit limit, and the interest on your loan may be tax deductible.
