HELOC Plus & Home Equity Loans

Smart. Useful. Flexible.

Sometimes, emergencies arise, and other times you have big plans but not the money to see them through. When you really need some extra money to cover those expenses, the equity in your home might be able to help.


The HELOC Plus1 is a loan offering from Avadian that offers the flexibility of a Home Equity Line of Credit” plus the “budgetability” that comes with a fixed rate Home Equity Loan.

It's a line of credit.

The HELOC part is a revolving line of credit, giving you the freedom to use it when and how you see fit. You can access funds as many times as you need during the first 10 years of the loan. During this period, you make interest-only payments on the amount drawn on the HELOC part, not the entire approved amount. The interest rate on a HELOC is a variable rate, meaning the rate can change over time. 

And it can also be used as a fixed-rate loan.

But that’s not all. The “Plus” part  allows you to “lock” in a portion of the HELOC Plus as a fixed rate loan, giving you a fixed payment that includes principal and interest.  

If you lock in a portion using the “Plus” part, you may continue to borrow against any available funds in your HELOC Plus. As you borrow, you may choose to utilize the HELOC part, making interest-only payments, or you may choose to utilize the “Plus” part as long as you have no more than three “Pluses” at one time.

Take a look at this chart to see how it works.

Home Equity Loans

A home equity loan allows you to borrow against the equity you have built in your home. The difference between a home equity loan and line of credit is that a home equity loan establishes a fixed term and rate right from the start. So, if you have identified how you want to use the equity, then a home equity loan might be right for you. 

1Home equity line of credit rates are based on loan-to-value and creditworthiness. The closing costs will be waived with a minimum advance at closing of $10,000. (The $10,000 must be new money.) Depending on the credit limit, closing costs, and other fees are estimated to be between $300 and $500. If Home Equity Line of Credit falls below $9,000 in the first six months, you will have to reimburse the amount of the closing cost paid on your behalf by the credit union. You must carry insurance on property that secures this plan.
All rates and offers are subject to change without notice and cannot be combined with other special promotions.

The credit union is federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration.
Additional insurance of up to $250,000 on your savings accounts is provided by Excess Share Insurance Corporation, a licensed insurance company.
