Home Equity

You work hard for your home. It’s time to let it start working for you.

Let your home work for you! If you need extra money for home improvements, a vacation, medical expenses, a wedding, tuition or anything else, consider tapping the equity in your home. The longer you’ve lived there, the more money you’ll have available.

Make the Equity in your home work for you!

Texas law allows you to borrow up to 80 percent of your home’s fair market value, minus the balance of any mortgages on the home.

Example:

$250,000  - Fair market value
x 0.80  
$200,000  - Credit value of your home
- $80,000  - What you owe on your mortgage
$120,000  - Maximum amount available to borrow

 

Home Equity Loan or Auto Loan?

Home Equity Loans can be a valuable option for purchasing a new vehicle. The interest rate is sometimes a little higher, but the interest on a Home Equity Loan can often be deducted on your tax return. If you have very few deductions on your itemized return, Home Equity Loans are often a better deal. Talk to your tax advisor about the benefits.
