Century Bank's Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) gives you the ability to use the equity in your home to secure a reusable source of cash that you can use for numerous situations. With this product we can loan, in a combined loan amount (using your first mortgage and the HELOC) of up to 90 percent of the value of your home. With this product we set up a line of credit that you can borrow against and repay as quickly as you would like. An added benefit to the HELOC is that interest paid on your HELOC may be tax deductible depending on your situation (please consult your tax advisor).
