Personal Banking > Home Equity Loans
Take advantage of the equity you have accumulated in your home to finance just about anything that you may choose. And, still be eligible to deduct the mortgage interest on what you borrow (consult your tax advisor). First Virginia Community Bank's Home Equity products will allow you to borrow up to 85% of the value of your home, with no hassle or hidden charges. We offer both an Equity Line and a Fixed Rate option, and you are eligible to have all or most of your closing costs paid by the bank *.
A First Virginia Community Bank Home Equity Line of Credit allows you to establish a personal line of credit that may be drawn upon at any time by simply writing a check or contacting the bank for funding. The credit line balance is re-paid in minimum monthly installments of "interest only", and the available funds on the credit line are replenished as payment of the principal is made. You control your borrowings and your payment schedule. Your interest rate is at a low Wall Street Journal Prime rate with a floor of 3.5%*, which is among the lowest in the market. Your rate may vary monthly.
*Annual Percentage Rates (APR) as of 03/19/2012 on FVCB Home Equity Lines are 3.50%. Rates may vary and are indexed to the Prime Rate as printed on the last business day of each month in the Wall Street Journal. Minimum APR is 3.50% and maximum APR will not exceed 18%.
A First Virginia Community Bank Home Equity Loan gives you a "fixed-rate" alternative to the equity line product, as well as providing the traditional amortized "term" loan that may be used for financing specific purchases and projects. This type of financing is particularly popular for the financing of education loans and major home improvement projects. For purposes of calculating payments, the terms may be amortized over 5, 10 or 15 years, but loans will normally be made for a maximum term of 5 years. This will result in a final "balloon" payment, or refinancing of the note being necessary at that time.
* Closing costs for the Home Equity Line of Credit and the Home Equity Loan products may range from $300 to $ 3,000. Minimum Home Equity Credit Lines are $ 10,000. Property insurance is required. Rates are subject to change. Some restrictions may apply. We do not give tax advice, please consult your tax advisor regarding possible tax advantages.
