How does a home equity line of credit work?

Similar to a credit card, a home equity line of credit (HELOC) allows you to borrow what you need, as you need it, up until you reach your credit limit.

The amount of credit you could get is determined by your home equity and other factors. If you have a home and have been making payments on your mortgage for years, then you may have built up a significant amount of equity.

Home Equity Line of Credit FAQs

What situations would an Alliant Interest-Only Home Equity Line of Credit be good for?

An interest-only Home Equity Line of Credit may be right for you if:

  • You’re self-employed or have variable income.
  • You expect your earnings to increase significantly in a few years.
How much equity do I need in my home to take out an Alliant HELOC?

The amount of equity you currently have in your home will determine your Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) limit. You must retain at least 10% of the value of the equity in your home (sometimes referred to as a 90% LTV maximum). You can make a ballpark estimate of your HELOC maximum by calculating what 90% of your home’s value is, then subtracting your existing mortgage balance(s) from that number.
