Home Equity Lines of Credit

Do you need funds for home improvements, college tuition, or debt consolidation? BFCU can help you borrow against the equity in your house with two different HELOC products.  Choose the one that fits your needs.


100% Home Equity Line of Credit

Housing values do seem to be coming back up. Still, a lot of people have access to less home equity because their home values have decreased. BFCUís new 100% Home Equity Line of Credit can help by allowing members to borrow up to the full appraised value of your home, minus the amount of any existing mortgages.
