Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be a member TruWest Credit Union to receive a home equity line of credit (HELOC)?
Yes. A membership is required if you are approved for a HELOC.
What is the difference between a home equity loan (HE loan) and a HELOC?
With a home equity loan, the money you are borrowing comes to you in one specific lump sum. Typically, you will also pay a fixed interest rate. A home equity line of credit (HELOC), lets you borrow money multiple times from an overall available sum. HELOCs usually also have you pay an adjustable interest rate.
Why choose a home equity line of credit?
Some of the benefits of a HELOC is its flexibility with the revolving line of credit and low closing costs. This is a great option for homeowners who want to borrow less money, withdraw their funds, as needed rather than all of it upfront.
