Save on Taxes and Interest with a Home Equity Loan

With a Fidelity Savings Fixed Rate Home Equity Loan you may be able to save money on our special low, locked-in interest rate that could be 100% tax-deductible (consult your tax advisor). You’ll enjoy the convenience of affordable monthly payments over a fixed time period.

With a Fidelity Savings Home Equity Standard or Preferred Variable Credit Line, or our Fixed Rate Credit Line, you can also enjoy lower interest rates and tax savings benefits… and whenever you need money, just simply write one of your credit line checks.

Fidelity Savings home equity loan products are ideal when money is needed to conveniently obtain the important things you want in life such as education, a second home, home expansion, improvements or alterations, a car or other vehicle, or an extended vacation. You may also be able to save even more by paying off higher interest obligations such as growing balances on your credit cards.

Home equity loans provide the borrower with a lump sum of cash, a fixed rate, a fixed term and fixed monthly payments. There is no risk of payment change. Different terms allow for budgeting to fit the borrower’s needs. Home equity lines of credit give the homeowner the ability to draw funds, with special checks, when needed. These borrowing methods minimize out-of-pocket expenses and allow the homeowner to choose the best term for his or her budget.

We Can Make A Difference; Let Us Show You How!

How home equity loans work – Your home has a current market value, which is determined by an independent appraisal. The DIFFERENCE between your property’s appraised value LESS recorded debt, such as your purchase mortgage, EQUALS the equity in your property. (Example: Property’s $100,000 appraisal X say a 75% Credit Limit = $75,000 percentage of appraised value minus the $40,000 balance of secured loans equals property borrowable equity of $35,000). Fidelity Savings home equity loan products allow you to borrow using your equity as collateral. To be eligible for a home equity loan product, the borrower must have a good credit history and pledge the residential dwelling as collateral for the loan; other monthly recurring contractual debt payments are also considered. Choose a term that fits your budget.
