Save more for six months
POSTED IN ADVICE ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 1, 2021
Take control of your debt with a home equity loan.
Home equity loans and lines of credit are flexible enough to be used for almost anything, but their great rates make them especially good for paying off high-interest debt. If you have big loan payments on credit cards, student loans or other debt with a high interest rate, paying them off with your equity you've built in your home could save you time and money.
When you use a home equity loan or line of credit to get rid of other debt, you'll have:
- A great interest rate. Veridian offers a rate as low as 3.10% APR for a five-year fixed home equity line of credit, while the average credit card rate3 nationwide is nearly 17% – and that can mean big savings.
- One monthly payment. You can have more time for the things that matter by combining multiple bills into one with your equity.
- Convenient access. You can keep tabs on your balance from anywhere with online banking and our mobile app.
For a limited time, you can keep even more of your hard-earned money with this special offer: 1.99% APR for the first six months on any home equity loan. After that, you’ll get our everyday great rates as low as 3.10% APR.
