Introducing New HELOC Program with Rate Riser Protection

Introducing New HELOC Program with Rate Riser Protection

Access the equity in your home with an E-Central HELOC with Rate Riser Protection to help pay for things like home improvements or college tuition. What is rate riser protection?

Remember, a HELOC is a variable rate loan, meaning the rate will adjust based on a pre-determined index, such as the Prime interest rate. Within the terms of most HELOC programs there are provisions how often and how much a rate can adjust when the Prime interest changes. For most other lenders, they can adjust your rate and thus your monthly payment on a quarterly basis. That can have a great impact your monthly budget and reduce your cash flow for daily living expenses.

Conversely, our new HELOC with Rate Riser Protection has an annual adjustment with a much lower cap (about half of other lenders); therefore, your payments will stay affordable when the Prime interest rate inevitably starts to rise.

To learn more call us at 626.799.6000 and our mortgage professionals will answer your questions, help you determine if an equity loan is right for you, and guide you through the process.
