A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a variable rate loan that is secured by your home. It works similar to a credit card, as you have a revolving credit line that you can draw on as you need it. As you repay your outstanding balance, the amount of available credit is replenished.
Once you close on your Home Equity Line, you receive an order of special checks that allow you to write checks whenever you need to make an advance. You can also transfer directly from your HELOC to your checking account via online banking.
A JetStream Federal HELOC offers you a 10 year draw period with a 15 year repayment term. Your minimum monthly payments will include principal and interest.
