Star Home Equity Line of Credit

2.50%/2.75%* APR HELOC promotion for 6 months.

A Star Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is an easy way to benefit from the time and money you’ve invested in your home. Borrowing against the equity you’ve built leverages the effort you’ve put in, giving you a financial leg up for new projects or cash flow needs. If you already have a HELOC with another institution, it’s easy to switch—we’ll even handle the paperwork. And, accessing funds is simple: you just write a check to borrow what you need, when you need it. Use your HELOC for:

  • Bill consolidation
  • Home maintenance
  • Home renovation or remodeling
  • Education expenses
  • Fulfilling your dreams

For a limited time, we're offering an introductory 2.50% fixed for the first 6 months and then prime - ½% with a floor of 2.75% after the 6-month introductory period.
