Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest home loan application process Of all the confusion that could've occurred, we had a very simple, straightforward experience with applying for and obtaining our home equity loan. Applying online was fast, easy and convenient. The information about next steps and what to expect and when to expect it came quickly and were very clear. We had a quick, convenient and painless closing and the funds were put in our account directly. Everyone was friendly and professional. Thank you Apple FCU for helping us achieve our goal of making our home a better one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST HELOC My husband and I applied for HELOC through Apple FCU and it was the best decision we ever made. Our loan officer and processor were GREAT. Very knowledgeable and quick to respond to emails or phone calls . They stated the process time would be 3-4 weeks from start to finish but our process from start to finish took less than two weeks. Thank you Darcie & Marco for everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Interested in obtaining a Home Equity Loan after I complete a basement refinishing in a month. I am not currently a member. What are the criteria for determining how much of my equity I can borrow against? I see on the website up to 100% LTV.

Asked by: Anonymous
Thanks for considering an Home Equity Loan with Apple FCU! Qualified applicants may borrow up to 100% LTV with an approved Home Equity Loan and a 770+ credit score. If you’ve been in your home less than 6 months the LTV will be based on the purchase price. If you’ve been in your home more than 6 months, a new appraisal will be ordered to determine the value. We recommend that you speak with a loan officer directly to discuss your specific lending needs. However, if you're ready to apply now, we invite you to open your account at AppleFCU.org/Join. Once you've got your member number, you can apply for your loan. Feel free to give us a call at 703-788-4800 (800-666-7996 toll-free). You may also apply online by visiting https://www.applefcu.org/Loans/MortgageBot.

Hi! Is the home equity loan like a personal kind of loan were if you already have a mortgage but you want to make home improvements you ca still borrow the money?

Asked by: Ditza
With a home equity product, you borrow against the available equity in your home. There are two types of equities to consider: Line of Credit (referred to as a HELOC) or Loan. At its most basic, an LOC is an open-end, revolving loan. Let's say for example, you'd get approved for $20,000. You could draw and pay-down on that limit repeatedly (Apple's HELOC has a 10-year draw period, 20-year repayment term). This could be used if you've got a number of home improvements to complete, are preparing for a wedding where you'll need to pay multiple vendors, etc. A loan on the other hand would disburse that $20,000 to you in one lump sum, with a set repayment term. These are great if you're doing debt consolidation, or for a one-time purchase, like a deck addition. Rates for an LOC are variable and your payments fluctuate based on your balance. With the Loan, however, the rate is fixed at the time of closing, so you have equal payments for the duration of the payback period. Hope that helps! If you have further questions, feel free to call and speak with an equity specialist at 703-788-4800, option 5.

I currently have a home equity loan that is in the repayment period of 10 years. Do you refinance those types of loans - I'm looking for a fixed rate for the rest of the 10 years. Thank you.

Asked by: Clarkbar
We can refinance Home Equities, but in general do not refinance loans currently held at Apple FCU. Since we're unsure if that's the case, please call 703-788-4800, option 5, to speak with an equity specialist to learn more about your options. We look forward to assisting you.

We bought our home in 2013 for $373000, and have paid it down to $335,000.  How much cash could we take out with a home equity loan or line of credit?  I would assume the value is at least $385,000.

What are the approximate closing costs for a Home Equity Line of Credit?

Asked by: Fairfax
Because closing costs are based on a number of factors, including the value of the loan, product selection, etc., it's difficult to give you a specific answer.
