Let’s dig a little deeper.
What makes an Advantis home equity line of credit (HELOC) unique?
A HELOC is like a credit card in that it’s an “open-end loan” that lets you draw as little or as much as you need from the equity loan (up to your established limit). This is especially helpful if your expenses suddenly increase, as they often do with projects like a home remodel.
A HELOC is unlike a credit card in that it offers lower rates, and is structured with a “draw period” (during which you can “draw” from borrowed funds) and a subsequent “payment” period (during which you pay down your outstanding balance). Also unlike a credit card, you may be able to deduct the HELOC interest you pay from your taxes!
Potential tax advantages.
Many consumers are able to deduct the interest paid on their HELOC from their income when it comes to tax time. This can result in significant tax advantages, especially if you have a larger HELOC balance. Everyone’s situation is different, so be sure to consult your professional tax advisor to see if you would qualify for any tax advantages.
Get convenient access to your HELOC funds whenever you wish.
It’s incredibly easy to borrow from your line of credit (during the draw period), anytime you like through Advantis Mobile and Online Banking, in-branch, and through our telephone teller.
Convert your balance to a fixed rate loan at any time.*
Although your HELOC features an adjustable rate, you can choose to convert your outstanding balance to a fixed-rate, fixed-term home equity loan at any time – and your first conversion is free! So, if a fixed loan is more to your liking, just send us a request to “fix it” and we’ll take care of the rest.
Affordable monthly payments.
The Advantis HELOC offers two options that are easy on your budget: Standard HELOC, your minimum payment is just 1% of your outstanding balance, plus interest (during the draw period). For example, if you draw $15,000 from your line of credit, your minimum payment would be $150, plus interest (and reduce each month as you pay down your balance). Interest‐Only HELOC, payments are interest only based upon outstanding balance or a $100, whichever is greater.
