First Lien Home Equity Loan

This is the perfect loan for those with significant equity in their home wanting to refinance and take advantage of a lower rate and avoid the closing costs of a traditional mortgage refinance. If you owe less than $250,000 and have at least 20% equity in your home, we offer a First Lien Home Equity Loan. This is the perfect option if you:

  • Have equity in your home
  • Want a lower interest rate
  • Want to avoid traditional closing costs

The reduced closing costs are quickly recouped, compared to the cost of refinancing into a conventional mortgage. There is an added benefit of seeing this loan on your regular statement: it can be viewed through our online and mobile banking site so you can make payments any time, and anywhere.
