When you're not sure how to reach your dreams, a home equity line of credit (HELOC) may be the place to start. A HELOC offers a variable-interest rate and works much like a credit card with a revolving line of credit. You have access to funds as needed up to your credit limit throughout the draw period.
Features you’ll love:
Borrow as needed, similar to a credit card
Great for periodic expenses—like tuition and emergency funds
1Flagstar home equity line of credit (HELOC) annual percentage rate (APR) is variable and is based on prime rate published in the Wall Street Journal, as of April 29, 2016, plus a margin which ranges from 2.99% APR – 6.49% APR for line amounts of $10,000 - $1,000,000. APR will not exceed 18%. All stated APR ranges apply to lines secured by residential property only, 1-4 unit owner occupied, modular homes, and owner occupied secondary homes. APR shown reflects a 1.25% interest rate discount for Flagstar personal deposit account customers with 750 credit scores, combined loan-to-value (CLTV) below 50% and at least $25,000 initial advance. Your APR may be higher and will be based on the variable-rate index value in effect at the time of account opening, your credit qualifications, amount of the line of credit, loan-to-value ratio, and type of property. No annual fee for first year, then $75 per year ($50 for eligible personal deposit customers). Line of credit must remain outstanding for at least 6 months to avoid repayment of closing fees, including, but not limited to title, appraisal, and recording Fees.

Your minimum monthly payment on your unpaid account balance at the end of the draw period, plus all periodic finance charges and other fees, charges and costs will be amortized equally over the 20 year repayment period.
