Home Equity Loans

A Home Equity Loan Gives You Options

Is it time to give your old kitchen a face-lift? Is the dated tile in your bathroom giving you the blues? It might be time to get a home equity loan from TPFCU!

Of course you can use the money for home improvements, but did you know you can use a home equity loan for anything you want? There are no restrictions imposed for how you can use the funds. And you’ll pay among the lowest Texas home equity loan rates possible.

Borrow Against the Value of Your Home

Borrow up to eighty percent (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.

It’s also possible to estimate how much you can borrow. If you know the appraisal value of your home, multiply it by 0.80. If you have existing liens on your home, subtract their amounts to calculate the maximum amount you can get. This simple home equity calculator reveals the loan estimate you can request.

A home equity loan can be used to fund home improvement projects, cover educational costs, and pay for major purchases like vacations, weddings, and celebrations. You can also use it for debt consolidation and pay down credit card debt. Whether you want to consolidate debts or take the family skiing, you can do whatever you want with home equity loans. If you have enough equity in your home, you can even use a home equity loan to buy another house, and even pay your real estate agent!

Follow the tabs to reach our home equity loan application and RESPA Disclosure Statement.

A mortgage officer will explain what you can expect to pay over the life of the loan, including interest rates.

The documents you need depend on the loan you apply for. When you apply with TPFCU, the cover sheet will itemize all the documents required and provide a list of guidelines. The RESPA Disclosure Statement will explain your rights under Federal law; you must print, sign, and include it with your application. Lastly, you must completely fill out your home equity loan application.

TPFCU does not charge fees to apply for loans or origination fees that other lenders charge. This equals savings on top of already low interest rates.

A comparison of the debt you owe on a monthly basis to how much you earn. It’s expressed as a percentage of your gross monthly income that is spent on rent, mortgage, credit cards, and other kinds of debt.

Based on a variety of factors, it can take two weeks to two months to approve your application. We do our best to offer a fast home equity loan process.

It depends on your financial goals. A home equity loan factors in the equity that’s built up on your property and gives you cash in exchange. It’s a separate loan. With cash-out refinances, your old mortgage is paid off in exchange for a new loan, often at a lower interest rate.
