What is Home Equity?
It's the difference between the current value of your home and how much is still owed on your mortgage. You can borrow against your home’s equity (or the amount you own) in your primary residence to help you pay for life’s big expenses. Tapping into your home’s equity can be a savvy way to secure low interest rates as you pay off the loan.

Benefits of TEG Home Equity Loans & Lines of Credit
Because HELOCs are secured, they typically have lower interest rates and lower initial costs than credit cards, which makes them attractive for debt consolidation or ongoing projects. Plus you’ll only pay interest on the money you actually use. Unlike high-rate credit cards, TEG’s HELOC is capped at 18%.
Flexibility in terms of what you can borrow and when you can pay it off. HELOCs allow you to borrow the funds you need as you go along. Borrowing only what you need can keep your monthly payments lower and help you avoid unnecessary debt. Our flexible monthly payments, including minimum payment of interest only, allow you to maximum control over your monthly cashflow and the speed with which you repay your debt.
You can draw on your HELOC by a simple transfer to your accounts, in-person requests, and home equity checks
