Home Equity Loans
Let The Value of Your Home Work For You.
A Home Equity Loan may be a great option for you if you are looking to cover a large expense or consolidate debt. Every hero has goals—use the current value of your home to help you achieve them.
Why an MCU Home Equity Loan?
If you live in New York or New Jersey and are looking to consolidate debt, cover a major project or a large, one-time expense, an MCU Home Equity Loan may be a good choice for you. Unlike a HELOC, this type of loan provides you with a lump sum and fixed interest rate.
With a Fixed Home Equity Loan, you can benefit from a low APR* with 10, 15 or 20 year fixed terms—which helps with planning your finances for the future or consolidating debt.
