What's the difference between loans and lines of credit?

Home Equity Loans

Home equity loans are a lump, one-time loan so you can receive the full amount you need right away. If you have a big project you'd like to complete soon, a home equity loan could be right for you. 

Home Equity Line of Credit

Home equity lines are a continuous loan that you can use whenever you need it. You only pay interest on the amount you use and draw as much as you need up to your limit. If you're considering needing some extra funds over the long-haul, this may be a good option for you. You can access funds through home equity line checks, or use Online Banking or the Tru2Go® mobile app to transfer the money directly into your Truliant checking account. Minimum monthly payment starting as low as 1% of the outstanding balance.4

What should I expect when applying for a home equity loan?

  1. Apply at one of our branches, over the phone, or online using our quick, convenient digital application, available virtually anywhere.

  2. Once you apply, we will help to walk you through the rest of the process so if you ever have a question, we're here for you. If you applied online, you can expect the same personalized attention from one of our Digital Guidance Team members.

  3. Once a decision has been made on your application, a home equity processor team member will contact you to discuss your loan amount, terms and payment information.

  4. Your funds are ready whenever you are.

Securely and Easily Borrow Against the Value in Your Home

Owning a home is a long-term investment. That doesn't mean, though, that you have to wait until you're ready to sell for that investment to begin paying off. You can use your house and mortgage as leverage to secure a home equity line of credit (HELOC) or home equity loan.

Maybe you need extra money to pay for a large expense or improvements. Maybe you're aiming to consolidate your debt, or perhaps you're looking for an extra pool of cash for a wedding or tackle another long-term project. Whatever the need, borrowing against the equity of your home can help you get the money you need quickly and easily. We'll even reimburse you for any appraisal fees when the loan closes2.

Apply for a HELOC, Mortgage Buster loan or a home equity loan online today, or contact us to speak with one of our loan experts. Truliant is here to help homeowners: we'll partner with you every step of the way to help you find a home equity solution to your financial needs.
