What Our Members Are Saying About Leaders

Frequently Asked Questions About HELOCs

A home equity line of credit (HELOC) is a revolving source of money that allows homeowners to borrow against their home equity and withdraw funds as needed. It differs from a home equity loan in that you have the flexibility to withdraw funds only when you need them and you pay only for what you withdraw.

 

With Leaders’ HELOCs, homeowners can withdraw funds over 7 years and must repay them over 15 years from the date the HELOC was opened.

With Leaders Credit Union, you can borrow up to $150,000 with a HELOC. Our Express HELOC offers lines of credit up to $10,000 while our Home Equity Smartline™ HELOC offers lines of credit between $10,001 and $150,000.

With Leaders Express HELOC, there are no closing costs. For the Home Equity Smartline™ HELOC, the closing costs will be based on your HELOC amount and other factors and may be as low as $199.

Leaders Credit Union HELOCs have a 7-year withdrawal period and a 15-year repayment period. That means you may withdraw funds up to your HELOC limit for the first seven years after your closing. After that, you’ll have eight additional years to repay what you borrowed.

HELOC interest rates are based on an index such as the Prime rate plus a margin. Leaders’ margins can range from 0.25% APR to 6% APR and will remain the same for the term of the loan. The total APR is variable and may fluctuate over the term of the HELOC.

With Leaders Credit Union, withdrawals are easy. You can make automatic withdrawals and put them in your Leaders checking account. From there, you can spend the funds by writing checks or using your free Leaders MasterCard® debit card.

No. HELOCs are loans that are secured by your home equity. You can use the money to make home improvements, buy a car, pay debt, or finance your child’s college education. The money is there to use as you see fit.
