Let's find your happy place

Homeowners, the equity in your house can help pay for just about any major purchase you can dream of—like a home remodel, new landscaping, or even a pool.

Home Equity Line of Credit
A Home Equity Line of Credit is a revolving line of credit with funds available up to a set amount.

Your line of credit is reusable, meaning you can access it again and again as you make payments during the draw period. With a line of credit, you’ll have funds available to you whenever you need them – and for whatever you choose.

Features
  • 10 year draw period with monthly interest-only payments.
  • After the draw period, the outstanding balance will be paid off in monthly principal and interest payments, over a 15 year period.
  • No fees on lines up to $250,000
  • 80% Loan to Value – combined mortgages plus Home Equity Line of Credit not to exceed 80% of home value
  • Interest may be tax deductible*
Rates are subject to First Bank auto debit, otherwise rate is 0.75% higher.

Personal/Unsecured Loans
