Tap Into the Equity of Your Home to Fund Your Next Project

With a Home Equity Loan from TPFCU, you can borrow up to 80% of the value of your home (less any other amounts you owe on your home) with terms up to 15 years. And better yet, your home equity loan may even be tax deductible! You may be able to deduct your home equity interest payments (consult your tax advisor for details). Home equity loans differ from other personal loans in this respect, and that they’re also influenced by the fair market value of your property.
