What's a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)?

A HELOC is a credit line, like a credit card would offer, that uses the equity in your home as collateral! It lets you borrow funds as needed, up to a set maximum credit limit. And, you only have to repay the funds you use.

Home Equity Lines of Credit are variable-rate lines. Rates are as low as 8.500% APR and 9.500% for Interest-Only Home Equity Lines of Credit and are based on an evaluation of credit history, CLTV (combined loan-to-value) ratio, line amount, and occupancy, so your rate may differ. The plan has a minimum APR of 3.99% and a maximum APR of 18%. Members who choose to proceed with an Interest-Only Home Equity Line of Credit may experience significant monthly payment increases when the line of credit enters into the repayment phase. Closing costs are costs paid to third parties rather than an application or origination fee retained by Navy Federal. The closing costs depend on the location of the property, property type, and the amount of the Equity Line. Rates are subject to change—information provided does not constitute a loan commitment. You must carry homeowners insurance on the property that secures this plan. Home Equity Lines of Credit are not available in Texas.


Some restrictions may apply. The maximum CLTV for primary and second properties is 95% and for investment properties is 70%. Factors that may impact the amount of equity that can be borrowed include evaluation of credit history, CLTV ratio, occupancy, and loan amount.
