Fund your next project or adventure

Make it happen with a home equity line of credit (HELOC).

Eager to start your next big project or adventure? Do it with a home equity line of credit (HELOC). Home equity credit lines allow you to borrow against your home equity when you need it.

HELOCs are typically used for:

  • Home improvement projects
  • Easy access to cash in case of emergencies
  • College tuition and related costs
  • Wedding expenses
  • Big purchases such as an RV, hot tub, or grill
  • Vacation funds

Contact a real estate expert at Alaska USA to discuss a HELOC.

Why a HELOC?

HELOCs are secured by your home equity. Secured credit lines typically have lower interest rates than unsecured credit lines. Plus, since it's a credit line and not a loan, you won't pay interest on funds you're not using.

Home improvement benefit: If you use the credit line to improve your home, the interest you pay may be tax-deductible. Consult a tax professional.

Home equity loan vs. HELOC

Home equity line of credit (HELOC)

Description Similar to a mortgage or consumer loan, a home equity loan is one lump sum to be paid back in regular payments, over a specified term. Often used to finance a major purchase, like remodeling your home or purchasing a new vehicle. A line of credit you can access any time, like a credit card. HELOCs are great for when you need to access funds over a period of time, such as college, a wedding, or just to be prepared for unexpected expenses. HELOC funds can be accessed at a branch, ATM, through online account access, or telephone transfer.
