Home Equity Loans

A Smarter Way To Borrow

Home equity is the difference between how much you owe on your mortgage and how much your home is worth.
A Gulf Winds Home Equity Loan (HELOAN) or Line of Credit (HELOC) allows you to tackle your to-do list or have money available when you need it.

  • Fixed rate for the life of the loan
  • 5, 10, and 15-year terms available
  • Regular monthly payments
  • Closing costs paid (some restrictions apply)*
  • Maximum Loan-to-Value is 85%

Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)

Do you need funds but are unsure of exactly how much you will need? A HELOC is a great option for recurring expenses such as tuition, medical bills, home improvements and more. Get approved for a maximum amount and then use what you need during the draw period. Any balance owed at the end of the draw period will then be amortized over the repayment period.

  • Introductory rate of 3.99% APR for the first 6 months1
  • 10-year draw period with a 20-year repayment term
  • Pay only interest during the 10-year draw period
  • Closing costs paid (some restrictions apply)*
  • Maximum Loan-to-Value is 85%
