Your home's equity is the difference between the market value of your home and your mortgage loan balance.

Property insurance required and flood insurance may be required. Important Consideration when managing Interest-Only Payments: The interest rate on a home equity line of credit is variable; therefore, your monthly interest-only payment may change with market rates. Your principal balance is only reduced when you make voluntary principal payments during the 15 year draw period of your home equity line of credit. At maturity, any remaining account balance outstanding will be due in a single balloon payment. At that time, the bank may, but is not obligated to, refinance the line of credit. Subject to credit and property approval.
