Home Equity Line of Credit

HELOCs at OTIS: Take what you need, when you need it. You earned it!

Home Equity Line of Credit


A HELOC is a home equity loan line of credit. A HELOC loan is like a credit card, in that once you have paid off what you initially borrowed (either in full or in part), you may borrow more up to the original amount of credit requested. Money may be withdrawn at any time during the draw period of the loan.


Take what you need, when you need it, to:
  • Tackle important home maintenance projects
  • Cover unexpected expenses that exceed your emergency fund
  • Consolidate and pay off higher interest debt at a lower interest rate
  • Finance higher education or a wedding
  • And more!

Payments are calculated on the balance of your loan after the last advance. When you take additional advances on your line of credit, your payment will adjust accordingly. This payment is 1.5% of the balance after the latest advance.


We lend up to 80% of the appraised value of your home, minus any existing mortgages. An appraisal may be required at a cost of $300. Additional fees include a title search, flood determination, and recording of the deed. The total charges associated with HELOCs amount to approximately $600. Here at OTIS, we require no application fee, no credit check fee, and no other processing fees of any kind for our HELOC loans. Our rates are based on the prime rate and your credit score.
