A Fixed Rate Equity Loan Option (FRELO) is a loan you take out of your HELOC during the draw period. As you pay this back, your HELOC line is replenished. A FRELO allows you to enjoy fixed rates for a set amount of time, rather than paying variable rates.

At ASB, we allow you to take out up to 5 FRELOs on your HELOC at one time. These fixed rate options are available at any time during the draw period of your HELOC. With our competitive FRELO, you can choose loan terms between 3, 5, 7, 10 and 15 years with a fixed interest rate. A FRELO may be a great option if you have a planned expense but still want access to funds should you need additional money.

A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) works similarly to a credit card. After being approved for a HELOC, you have access to a specified amount of credit secured by the equity in your home during your ten year draw period. Depending on the HELOC product you were approved for, you may be required to pay interest only or a portion of your principal plus interest during the draw period. This is followed by a fully amortized twenty year repayment period. HELOC rates are variable and can change over the life of the credit line. We provide qualified Hawaii homeowners with HELOCs up to $1,000,000.

Unlike a second mortgage, a HELOC provides you with funds that can be accessed at any time during the draw period. Second mortgages, on the other hand, provide a one-time lump sum payment of funds. A HELOC can allow you to use as much or as little credit as you need to make purchases or complete projects. If you think you will need additional cash resources over a period of time, a HELOC may be a good option for you.

Applying for a HELOC for your Hawaii home is simple with the help of an experienced Personal Banker from ASB; online applications are also available. Speak with a Personal Banker today to learn more about HELOCs and how a line of credit may be the best option for your financing needs.

You can access your Equity Express Home Equity Line of Credit by EquityExpressSM Visa® card, check, at a branch, or through transfers in Online Banking.

Setting up automatic transfers including loan payments is easy with Online Banking. Click here to learn how >

You may also use the Automatic Payments and Transfers form to set up automatic transfers to or from your accounts. If you are withdrawing from a non-ASB account, you will need the account number and routing number, a voided check, or a copy of your statement. Return the form to any branch or mail to:

How to Calculate the Equity in Your Hawaii Home

Monday, July 26, 2021

Your home’s equity is the difference between what you owe on your mortgage and what your home is currently worth. In Hawaii, many homeowners decide to use the equity in their homes to meet financial needs — like a big home renovation project or as a line of emergency credit in case of unexpected expenses.

We’re here to help if you’re thinking about tapping into the equity on your home in Hawaii. Our friendly team can help answer your questions. Keep reading to learn more about how to determine the equity in your home and how you can leverage it to achieve your goals.

family

HOW DO I DETERMINE THE EQUITY IN MY HOME?

To find your current home equity, consider this equation:

Current Home Value – Outstanding Mortgage Balance = Home Equity

Let’s say your home is currently worth $500,000 and you still have $300,000 left to pay on your mortgage. That means, your home’s equity is approximately $200,000.

This is a quick and easy equation to give you an approximate number. You’ll most likely need a home appraisal to get the exact amount of equity you have in your home in Hawaii because an appraisal tells you the current fair market value of your home.

HOW IS A HOME EQUITY LOAN OR LINE OF CREDIT DETERMINED?

What does home equity mean? For many homeowners in Hawaii, it’s an additional resource you can use to access financing. Home equity loans and Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOC) let you borrow against the equity in your home. Many times, home equity loans and HELOCs have lower interest rates and fees than other types of personal financing.

Lenders like ASB set a loan-to-value ratio to help determine how much of your home’s equity you can borrow. The loan-to-value ratio is a percentage of your home’s appraised value. This is the maximum amount you can borrow against your home’s equity but doesn’t include any outstanding mortgage balances.

For example, if your home is appraised at $100,000 and your lender’s loan-to-value ratio is 80%, you could potentially borrow up to $80,000 of your home’s value. However, if you have a balance on your home loan, you’ll need to subtract the loan balance from the total. For example, if you owe $50,000 on your loan, you could potentially borrow up to $30,000.

$80,000 (80% of your home’s $100,000 value) - $50,000 (remaining loan balance) = $30,000 (maximum you could borrow)

homeownership computer

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET AN APPRAISAL ON MY HOME?

You’ll generally need to get a home appraisal on any home that you’re buying, but what about after the sale? Do you need to get a home appraisal regularly? The answer is that it's up to you. Home appraisals could be expensive, but they’re also a good way to see how much your home’s value has gone up or down since you bought it. You may also be required to get a new home appraisal if you refinance your mortgage or take out a HELOC.

HOW CAN I INCREASE MY HOME’S EQUITY?

Your home’s equity increases as your home loan liability decreases. The easiest way to increase the equity in your home in Hawaii is to continue paying off your mortgage. If you’re looking to increase your equity quickly, you can consider making extra payments toward your home loan or increasing your payment amount. This helps put more of your payments toward the principal of the loan.

Equity also increases if your home value rises. Many homes in Hawaii will appreciate over time, meaning your home’s value is likely to increase each year. If you don’t feel like waiting for home values to go up in your area, you can increase your home’s value — and your equity — by making strategic home improvements to increase property value. For example, you might take on a small remodel project or redo the landscaping to make your home more desirable to potential buyers.

CALCULATE YOUR HOME’S EQUITY AND PUT IT TO USE WITH A HELOC

Learning how to determine the equity of your home is simple in theory — you’ll subtract the remaining balance of your mortgage from your home’s current value. In practice, however, this process can be a little more confusing. You’ll need to have at least a rough estimate of the current value of your home. Depending on where you live, your home may have seen a recent increase in value.

You can get the exact fair market value of your home in Hawaii by considering a home appraisal. It’s important to note that there may be a cost to obtaining an appraisal. You might even be able to borrow against your home’s equity without the need for an additional appraisal. You should get in touch with a knowledgeable home loan officer who understands Hawaii’s real estate market and can answer your questions about a HELOC. The ASB home loan team can help homeowners in Hawaii tap into their home equity for renovation projects, new furniture purchases, and other financial needs. Make an appointment with a loan officer today to learn more about home equity and applying for a HELOC.

Get a Home Equity Loan in St. Louis

Home equity is typically the largest asset owned by an American family. That’s why a home equity loan is often the most affordable and convenient source of financing available.

Apply for a Home Equity Loan in St. Louis

At Jefferson Bank, we’re big on customer relationships: yours! That’s why we work hard to provide industry-leading rates on your next home equity loan. We also provide individualized service to all our borrowers to ensure that the loan fits in to a solid overall financial plan.

To find out more about our bank in St. Louis or to apply for a home equity loan, call us at 314-621-0100 or come by one of our convenient St. Louis area locations today.

What Is a Home Equity Loan?

A home equity loan is a personal loan secured by a homeowner’s equity in their home. The value of that loan is determined by the appraised value of the home, the borrower’s credit, and other factors.

For example, the more valuable the home, the larger the maximum size of the home equity loan can be. Additionally, the more equity that you own in the house, the more that you can use to secure your home equity loan. In times during which your local housing market is improving, it can be very advantageous to borrow a home equity loan.

What Should I Use a Home Equity Loan for?

St. Louis Home Equity Loans

A home equity loan can be a great source of financial flexibility for families that own substantial home equity. It’s especially effective for families that need additional cash, but who don’t want to need to sell their home to do it. You can’t sell ‘half’ of a home to another buyer, but you can effectively ‘sell’ part of your equity back to the bank when you borrow a home equity loan.

That way, you can use the equity you have built up in your home more like you would use a savings account. During stable or rising home price conditions, it can also be a smart strategic move to improve your financial position. Interest on a Home Equity Line of Credit may be tax deductible (consult your tax advisor).

The most common use for a home equity loan is to finance home improvements that are more likely to increase the value of the home. The main reason why so many people use a home equity loan for this purpose is because it tends to enhance the value of the underlying home equity. It makes it so that, market conditions permitting, the home equity loan can pay for itself either partially or in full.

Others use their home equity loan to consolidate debt, finance major purchases, for education, or as an added source of financial security.

However, if you have a balance on your home loan, you’ll need to subtract the loan balance from the total. For example, if you owe $50,000 on your loan, you could potentially borrow up to $30,000.

$80,000 (80% of your home’s $100,000 value) - $50,000 (remaining loan balance) = $30,000 (maximum you could borrow)

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET AN APPRAISAL ON MY HOME?

You’ll generally need to get a home appraisal on any home that you’re buying, but what about after the sale? Do you need to get a home appraisal regularly? The answer is that it's up to you. Home appraisals could be expensive, but they’re also a good way to see how much your home’s value has gone up or down since you bought it. You may also be required to get a new home appraisal if you refinance your mortgage or take out a HELOC.

HOW CAN I INCREASE MY HOME’S EQUITY?

Your home’s equity increases as your home loan liability decreases. The easiest way to increase the equity in your home in Hawaii is to continue paying off your mortgage. If you’re looking to increase your equity quickly, you can consider making extra payments toward your home loan or increasing your payment amount. This helps put more of your payments toward the principal of the loan.

american savings bank home equity loan Equity also increases if your home value rises. Many homes in Hawaii will appreciate over time, meaning your home’s value is likely to increase each year. If you don’t feel like waiting for home values to go up in your area, you can increase your home’s value — and your equity — by making strategic home improvements to increase property value. For example, you might take on a small remodel project or redo the landscaping to make your home more desirable to potential buyers.

Learning how to determine the equity of your home is simple in theory — you’ll subtract the remaining balance of your mortgage from your home’s current value. In practice, however, this process can be a little more confusing. You’ll need to have at least a rough estimate of the current value of your home. Depending on where you live, your home may have seen a recent increase in value.

You can get the exact fair market value of your home in Hawaii by considering a home appraisal. It’s important to note that there may be a cost to obtaining an appraisal. You might even be able to borrow against your home’s equity without the need for an additional appraisal. You should get in touch with a knowledgeable home loan officer who understands Hawaii’s real estate market and can answer your questions about a HELOC. The ASB home loan team can help homeowners in Hawaii tap into their home equity for renovation projects, new furniture purchases, and other financial needs. Make an appointment with a loan officer today to learn more about home equity and applying for a HELOC.

Common Questions:

APR stands for “Annual Percentage Rate” and represents the price you pay to borrow money. APR is a broader measure than interest rate because it includes the interest rate plus other costs such as lender fees, closing costs and insurance. You can use APR to compare loans offered by different lenders when shopping for a mortgage loan.

For example, based on a purchase price of $500,000; loan amount of $400,000 (20% down payment; 80% loan-to-value); interest rate of 4.00% and 1.00% points, the monthly principal and interest payment on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage would be $1,909.66 and an APR of 4.119%. Keep in mind your mortgage loan monthly payment will be higher as lenders typically include proerpty tax and insurance costs.

Getting a mortgage in Hawaii may seem like a daunting task, but a knowledgeable mortgage expert can help you through the process. The first step to securing the right mortgage for your new home is to know what you can afford. Once you know how much you can afford on a mortgage each month, you can start the mortgage application process. Finding a local mortgage officer, like the mortgage loans team from ASB, will make it easy to figure out how much of a mortgage you need and can afford.

Before you fill out any mortgage loan applications, there are steps you can take to make the process easier. Your credit score is a major factor in determining if you get approved for a home mortgage loan. Check your american savings bank home equity loan score before applying for a home loan in Hawaii and look over your credit report for any errors. If you have a strong credit score, you are more likely to be approved for a loan and may receive a better interest rate. Once you’ve determined that your credit score is in good standing and have decided on a type of mortgage loan, you can fill out the mortgage loan application. You will likely need various financial and tax documents to complete the application. Often a lender will require your W-2 or paystubs to confirm income, as well as bank statements and statements from retirement accounts like a 401(k).

A mortgage loan works by a financial institution lending you the money to purchase your dream home in Hawaii. You are then required to pay back the amount of the loan plus interest over a period of time. Mortgage loans are usually paid in monthly payments that include payment towards the principal, or balance of your mortgage loan, and interest costs. Your monthly mortgage loan payment may also include other costs as well, such as homeowners insurance. There are a variety of home loans available for qualified homebuyers in Hawaii. When choosing a mortgage loan, you’ll want to consider the different loan terms available to you. The length of time you will pay the loan back, the interest rate, and how much of a down payment you are required to have are all important factors in choosing a mortgage loan. For example, many home loans in Hawaii are available with a fixed interest rate for a period of either 15 or 30 years.

There are so many factors to considering when choosing a home loan, it can be difficult to know how to pick. Finding the right mortgage loan for your home in Hawaii doesn’t have to be confusing with the help of our local home loan experts.

Home Purchase Loans
Home purchase loans are used to buy a house and are the most common types of loans. Loan types include:

  • First Time Home Buyer Loans: Options to save money on down payments and other costs through first-time homebuyer loan programs.
  • Conventional Home Loans: If you’ve established good credit history and have the cash available for closing costs, a conforming loan or conventional loan provides a straightforward homebuying process.
  • Jumbo Loans: For homes outside of the conforming loan limits, Jumbo loans gives you the option to buy a high-value home.
  • VA Loans: VA loans are backed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and give eligible veterans and military service members access to great rates, low to no down payments, and more.

Refinance Loans:
Refinance Loans allow you to change the terms of your existing mortgage loan to better suit your financial situation or take advantage of decreased home loan rates.

Construction Loans:
Found the perfect spot for your next home? You can get the money you need to purchase the lot for your home and either build it right away or wait until american savings bank home equity loan ready.

In addition to the many different types of home loans available, there are two interest rate options when financing a home purchase: fixed-rate and adjustable rate. A fixed-rate mortgage loan provides you with a locked-in rate for the life of your loan. If you wish to change the rate, you’ll need to refinance your loan. Most Hawaii residents choose this option when financing a home. Fixed-rate mortgage loans allow you to know how much money you’ll spend on interest over the life of your loan as well as what your american savings bank home equity loan payment will be. Most fixed-rate mortgage loans are either terms of 30 years or 15 years. An adjustable rate mortgage loan, known also as an ARM, has an interest rate that can change periodically. Most adjustable rate mortgage loans begin with a set number of years that have a locked-in interest rate. A 7/1 ARM is the most common type, which means that the first 7 years of the mortgage loan will have a fixed interest rate. After the initial 7 years, the interest rate is variable every 6 months, meaning it could change every 6 months. The initial interest rate is often lower than fixed-rate mortgage loans. Adjustable rate mortgage loans can be a smart option if you plan to move before the fixed interest rate expires.

A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) works similarly to a credit card. After being approved for a HELOC, you have access to a specified amount of credit secured by the equity in your home during your ten year draw period. Depending on the HELOC product you were approved for, you may be required to pay interest only or a portion of your principal plus interest during the draw period. This is followed by a fully amortized twenty year repayment period. HELOC rates are variable and can change over the life of the credit line. We provide qualified Hawaii homeowners with HELOCs up to $1,000,000.

Unlike a second mortgage, a HELOC provides you with funds that can be accessed american savings bank home equity loan any time during the draw period. Second mortgages, on the other hand, provide a one-time lump sum payment of funds. A HELOC can allow you to use as much or as little credit as you need to make purchases or complete projects. If you think you will need additional cash resources over a period of time, a HELOC may be a good option for you.

What Is a Home Equity Loan?

A home equity loan is a personal loan secured by a homeowner’s equity in their home. The value of that loan is determined by the appraised value of the home, the borrower’s credit, and other factors.

For example, the more valuable the home, the larger the maximum size of the home equity loan can be. Additionally, the more equity that you own in the house, the more that you can use to secure your home equity loan. In times during which your local housing market is improving, it can be very advantageous to borrow a home equity loan.

What Should I Use a Home Equity Loan for?

St. Louis Home Equity Loans

A home equity loan can be a great source of financial flexibility for families that own substantial home equity. It’s especially effective for families that need additional cash, but who don’t want to need to sell their home to do it. You can’t sell ‘half’ of a home to another buyer, but you can effectively ‘sell’ part of your equity back to the bank when you borrow a home equity loan.

That way, you can use the equity you have built up in your home more like you would use a savings account. During stable or rising home price conditions, it can also be a smart strategic move to improve your financial position. Interest on a Home Equity Line of Credit may be tax deductible (consult your tax advisor).

The most common use for a home equity loan is to finance home improvements that are more likely to increase the value of the home. The main reason why so many people use a home equity loan for this purpose is because it tends to enhance the value of the underlying home equity. It makes it so that, market conditions permitting, the home equity loan can pay for itself either partially or in full.

Others use their home equity loan to consolidate debt, finance major purchases, for education, or as an added source of financial security.

Other American Savings Bank Stories

Sponsored by American Savings Bank

Are you thinking about tapping into your home equity, but aren’t sure how? With the current low interest rate environment, now may be the best time to get a Home Equity Line of Credit or refinance your mortgage! But how do you know which is right for you? HI Now host Kanoe Gibson is with Vice President and Executive Residential Loan Officer Reyn Sugai at American Savings Bank to learn about the ins and outs of home equity.

“HELOCs and refinances are both ways to better access the value you have accumulated in your home,” Sugai says. “They can be used to consolidate debt and even increase the value of your home by allowing you to make home repairs and renovations.”

A HELOC gives you a line of credit with funds you can use, based on the value of your home. HELOCs usually come with an adjustable interest rate, which means that if baseline interest rates go up or down, the interest rate on your HELOC will adjust too. ASB also provides a fixed rate option for HELOCs so you can lock in a low fixed rate on a portal or all of your outstanding HELOC balance.

“If you are unsure how much money you’ll need, then a HELOC gives you flexibility to draw funds as needed over the 10-year draw period,” Sugai adds. “HELOCs generally have a quicker loan process with limited closing costs, and can also be used as your second mortgage.”

A refinance replaces your current mortgage. This new loan is a great option for consolidating high interest credit card and loan debts, taking cash out with fixed monthly payments and lowering your monthly payments, especially if the refinance includes a lower interest rate than your current mortgage. Refinance can also help you pay off your loan quicker if you switch to a shorter-term loan such as a 15-year mortgage.

It’s a good time to look into one of these options because interest rates are at historic lows, which means that it’s a great time to lower your monthly payments and gain access to cash to accomplish your goals.

“If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we have to be prepared for uncertainty. We also don’t know how long this low rate environment will last, so taking advantage of it now could help you in the long run,” Sugai says. “If you got your current mortgage at a high interest rate, now could be a great time to use a HELOC or refinance to reduce your rate.”

In addition, the application process may be even easier that you previously experienced. Mortgage lenders like ASB now offer online mortgage applications, which allows you to apply from the comfort of your own home. This makes the process more safe, secure and convenient. Of course, you can still apply in person with a loan officer too!

In addition to its online mortgage application and calculators, ASB also has a lot of online resources at asbhawaii.com including current rates, details on all loan products and more. Its team of helpful and knowledgeable loan officers are ready to help you anytime, anywhere. You can reach out to meet via phone or in person at one of ASB’s Home Loan Centers where they can assist you with applying for a loan or simply understanding your current situation and what works best for you.

Foreclosure and taxes

With both home equity loans and HELOCs, your home is collateral for the loan. If you don't pay your primary loan or your equity loan, a lender could foreclose and seize the property.

Although you may have heard that the interest on home equity loans and HELOCs is usually tax deductible on loans up to $100,000, that's not quite the full picture. In truth, the interest you pay on a mortgage up to $1 million is tax deductible. If you have a home equity loan, that overall mortgage limit gets bumped up by $100,000 to $1.1 million, according to Rob Seltzer, a CPA who runs a firm bearing his name in Los Angeles.

So you might have a high-value property — worth, say, $650,000 — and you may have a $250,000 first mortgage on it and a $200,000 line of credit as well. Under this scenario, you'd have $450,000 in mortgage debt outstanding, and because you're well under the $1.1 million mortgage limit, the interest you pay on both loans would be tax deductible, Seltzer notes.

Watch out for the lure of minimum payments

If you decide to tap your home equity in order to consolidate debt, recognize the pros and cons of doing so.

"Home equity is a great tool if it's used responsibly," says Seltzer, "but it can also be a trap."

People looking to consolidate debt, such as credit cards or auto loans, benefit in two ways: "With home equity loans and HELOCs, you're not only getting a lower rate, you're also making payments that are tax deductible."

The downside, however, is that equity lines of credit only require you to pay interest in the early years of the loan. "People need to have discipline and not just essentially make minimum payments on HELOCs," he says.

Lorsch agrees, noting that's another way in which HELOCs can act like credit cards.

"During the first five or 10 years, during the draw period, most lenders only require you to pay interest, and many people do in fact only pay interest, not principal on HELOCs," Lorsch says. "But you can always pay more."

A Fixed Rate Equity Loan Option (FRELO) is a loan you take out of your HELOC during the draw period. As you pay this back, your HELOC line is replenished. A FRELO allows you to enjoy fixed rates for a set amount of time, rather than paying variable rates.

At ASB, we allow you to take out up to 5 FRELOs on your HELOC at one time. These fixed rate options are available at any time during the draw period of your HELOC. With our competitive FRELO, you can choose loan terms between 3, 5, 7, 10 and 15 years with a fixed interest rate. A FRELO may be a great option if you have a planned expense but still want access to funds should you need additional money.

A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) works similarly to a credit card. After being approved for a HELOC, you have access to a specified amount of credit secured by the equity in your home during your ten year draw period. Depending on the HELOC product you were approved for, you may be required to pay interest only or a portion of your principal plus interest during the draw period. This is followed by a fully amortized twenty year repayment period. HELOC rates are variable and can change over the life of the credit line. We provide qualified Hawaii homeowners with HELOCs up to $1,000,000.

Unlike a second mortgage, a HELOC provides you with funds that can be accessed at any time during the draw period. Second mortgages, on the other hand, provide a one-time lump sum payment of funds. A HELOC can allow you to use as much or as little credit as you need to make purchases or complete projects. If you think you will need additional cash resources over a period of time, a HELOC may be a good option for you.

Applying for a HELOC for your Hawaii home is simple with the help of an experienced Personal Banker from ASB; online applications are also available. Speak with a Personal Banker today to learn more about HELOCs and how a line of credit may be the best option for your financing needs.

You can access your Equity Express Home Equity Line of Credit by EquityExpressSM Visa® card, check, at a branch, or through transfers in Online Banking.
