Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be a member TruWest Credit Union to get a home equity (HE) loan?
Yes. A membership is required if you are approved for the loan.
What is the difference between a HE loan and a home equity line of credit (HELOC)?
With a home equity loan, the money you are borrowing comes to you in one specific lump sum. Typically, you will also pay a fixed interest rate. A home equity line of credit (HELOC), lets you borrow money multiple times from an overall available sum. HELOCs usually also have you pay an adjustable interest rate.
Why choose a home equity loan?
A HE loan is ideal when you want a larger sum of money at a fixed-interest rate, you know how much you want, and you plan to spend it quickly. It is important to note that HE loan closing costs are higher than those of HELOCs. It may not make sense to incur these costs if you plan to borrow a small amount and pay it off fast.
Who are loan originators who work with TruWest?
