How Much Equity Do You Have in Your Home?

How Much Equity Do You Have in Your Home?

As your home maintains or increases in value, and you pay down your CEFCU Home Loan, you'll build equity in it. Equity is the difference between the current market value of your home and what you owe. You may be able to use the equity in your home to:

  • Consolidate higher interest debt or credit cards.
  • Complete a home improvement project.
  • Help finance a college education or wedding.
  • And more!

How do you know how much equity you have in your home?

Example of how to determine your available Home Equity Credit Loan/Line. Take the Appraised home value and multiply by .90. That gives you your available equity. Subtract the balance due on your first mortgage. The result is the approximate amount available as a Home Equity Credit Loan/Line.
Available Equity Example
Appraised home value $100,000
Multiply by 0.90 (or 90%) 0.90
Available equity $90,000
Balance due on first mortgage -$70,000
Approximate amount available as a Hybrid Home Equity Line of Credit $20,000

Benefits of a CEFCU Hybrid Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)

With the Hybrid HELOC from CEFCU, you enjoy the flexibility of a variable-rate HELOC, using funds only when you need them, and the peace of mind of a Home Equity Loan, offering fixed rate(s) and payment(s). Plus, you only pay interest on the funds you use. This makes it especially convenient if you don’t know exactly how much a project or financial need will cost.

Improve your home’s value

Using your home’s equity for home improvement projects can add to its value. If you plan on selling your home within the next 10 years, a Hybrid HELOC could pay for itself.

  • No annual fee
