A Hybrid Home Equity Tool

Custom Fit takes a different approach than traditional home equity options. You no longer need to choose between a home equity line of credit (HELOC) or a home equity loan with a fixed rate and term. Custom Fit brings together the best parts of both these tools in one uniquely flexible financing solution.

You get one variable line of credit for flexible equity funds when you need them for things like home improvement projects or debt consolidation. And since there is no required minimum draw amount, you don’t have to use it right away. You can keep it as a source for emergency funds to cover unexpected expenses as they arise.

Lock in a Great Rate Whenever You Want

You also get up to five fixed-rate segments to lock in a good rate whenever you want. Moving your balance over to a fixed-rate loan segment can often get you an even better rate—and will lock in that better rate until you pay the segment off. And if you need to use your line of credit again down the line, you can roll that new balance over into another fixed-rate segment. Best of all, no matter how many loan segments you have, you always have just one simple payment.
