Home Equity

Use The Equity In Your Home

Are you looking for a smart option to consolidate debt? Would you like to renovate your home, or finally put a pool in the backyard? Our Home Equity Loan is the perfect solution. Don’t choose between a home equity line of credit or a home equity loan when you can have both with Y-12 Federal Credit Union. Our Home Equity Loan starts as a line of credit that is always available when you need it. It doesn’t stop there! You can also lock in a fixed rate at any time for terms up to 10 years*.

  • Borrow what you need when you need it

  • Low closing costs1

  • Potential for tax-deductible interest2

  • Ability to lock your balance into a low, fixed rate for terms up to 10 years3
