A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is an open-ended, revolving loan with a variable rate that allows you to withdraw funds from your available line of credit, just like you would with a checking account. A HELOC is a sound way to use the equity in your home (the amount of your home’s appraised value that you own once the remaining principal balance is subtracted) to finance home improvement projects or to consolidate debt from credit cards and other loans into one easy monthly payment.
HELOCs are best for people who need to be able to draw funds as necessary over a span of time. Here’s an example: Let's say you're starting a very large home improvement project, like an addition, and you don’t know how much the project will end up costing or how long the project will take to complete. A HELOC would be quite advantageous for you because you will only be borrowing money as you need it, when you need it, to get this addition built.
A note about HELOC payments: Minimum payments for Bronco HELOCs are calculated using one of three options, depending on your loan terms:
0.50% of the principal balance—Example: Your principal balance is $25,000 and the interest rate is 6.00% APR (Annual Percentage Rate). 0.50% of $25,000 is $125.00. Based on the 6.00% rate, interest for a 30-day month is $123.29. Therefore, the payment would be $125.00, with $123.29 applied to the interest and $1.71 applied the principal of your loan.
Interest due for the preceding month—Example: The “Interest Due” amount on your statement is $248.00. If this amount is the greatest of the three options, you are only making payments on the interest alone. Interest-only payments do not reduce your principal.
$50.00—Example: If 0.50% of your principal balance is $25 and your “Interest Due” amount on your statement is $32.88, your payment will be $50.00.
Another important note: Unlike a conventional loan where the Annual Percentage Rate is fixed over the course of the loan, a HELOC’s rates are variable and may change as the Prime Rate (a rate established by the Federal Reserve Board based on what banks charge their most creditworthy customers) fluctuates.
