Home Equity

Home Equity Loan and Line of Credit

Leveraging the equity in your home, either through a loan or a line of credit, can be an effective way to access funds. A Home Equity Loan provides a single, lump sum paid off over a set amount of time, at a fixed rate, via monthly payments.

By contrast, a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) allows you to borrow up to a certain amount for a period of time determined by your lender. During that time, you can withdraw funds as you need to. You pay back the amounts you borrowed—at a variable rate that fluctuates over the life of the loan—and those funds become available again should you want to use them.

Northfield Savings Bank doesn't charge application, appraisal, or closing cost fees on your Home Equity Loan or Line of Credit, so you can invest that money where it's most needed.

Online or in-person, applying is easy. To apply online, click Apply Online above, and get started by creating an account. To apply in-person, please visit your local branch.
