|Application & Approval Process|
By borrowing against the equity in your home, you create a line of credit that you control. For example: If you establish a $15,000 home equity line of credit, you access these funds by simply calling 1st Bank. If you use $2,500, you only pay interest on that amount. You still have $12,500 available to use. Pay down your line and use these funds over and over again. It's that simple...like approving your own loan whenever you want.
Apply for a Home Equity Loan or Line of Credit and make your home improvements.
Why should you obtain a Home Equity Loan or Line?
One of the biggest advantages of a home equity loan or line compared to a vehicle or consumer loan is the possible tax deductibility of the interest paid on these loans -- consult your tax advisor.
A 1st BankSM Home Equity Loan or Line of Credit is an agreement where the borrower(s) uses the equity in their home as collateral for the loan / line. Home Equity loans and lines are the most popular methods for consumers to finance home improvements, invest in more property, manage their personal cashflow, purchase vehicles or consolidate debt, and usually at a lower interest rate. Home equity loans are for a specific amount and are amortized / paid over a defined period of time. A Home Equity Line of Credit is a revolving line of credit accessed by contacting 1st Bank. You can make major purchases, pay off debt or use for any other purpose to manage your personal cashflow. Generally these loans and lines are the second mortgage on your residence, but can be a first mortgage, or possibly a mortgage on a second home or investment property.
Home Equity Loans are available with a fixed interest rate or variable rate. Depending on the product, your monthly payments may be adjusted semi-annually or your monthly payment may stay the same when rates change.
Most Home Equity Lines of Credit have a variable interest rate and are adjusted and indexed like the Home Equity Loans. Pricing for these lines varies by customer depending on the credit quality, the term of the line, and the line amount compared to the value of the home. We suggest the payments be automatically deducted from a 1st Bank checking or savings account each month.
Application and Approval Process:
Please complete an application for the loan or line of credit and submit it to any 1st Bank office. Your application will be expedited if you include a copy of your homeowner's insurance policy and a verification of income / earnings. We can usually "conditionally approve" a home equity loan or line within a day of receiving a complete application and other supporting documents. We may require an appraisal in certain situations.
