Deal Details

Last Edited by widgit March 25, 2012 at 03:50 PM
Pentagon Federal Credit Union (PenFed) is now offering a 5 year home equity loan (HEL) for only 1.99% with NO closing costs! Must be owner-occupied home with 80% or less loan to value, must apply online.

Here's a link for more info: https://www.penfed.org/home-equity-loan/

Use a home equity loan to remodel/renovate your house, pay college costs, pay down your higher interest debt (including a mortgage), or buy a second home or investment property. HELs may be tax-deductible.

I've never seen a better deal on a home equity loan (1.99% for 5 years with no closing costs!!!), so if one is right for your situation you might want to check into PenFed. PenFed has a great reputation. Link to home page: https://www.penfed.org/HomePage.aspx

Hope this helps someone!

This deal is only for people who have over 20% EQUITY in their house. For example, if you have 30% equity in your house, you can take 10% out.
Edit: Home equity loans may be tax deductible, see IRS publication http://www.irs.gov/publications/p...1000230008

FYI - I applied for mortgage with penfed a month ago - I got approved and then I was able to get their platinum visa card WITHOUT a new credit check. They use the credit report from my home mortgage. This card has no annual fees and you get $250 in rewards with $1000 spent within first 3 months. So this should work with this HELOC offer also. Link:

It's all about timing. Bought in 1998 and am around 25% LTV with a 3.25% fixed rate.

Has anyone ever used this that can chime in on this in more detail? I have student loans to pay that are currently out of this world at 6.8% and would love to get in on this to lower the interest rate significantly. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!

I guess to make money you'd put money down on more buildings (homes/apts) and rent them out.

You realize you have a actually own a home with actual equity meaning you owe less on it that it's worth and judging from the tables, you have to have more than 20% equity to qualify for the awesome rate.

I might actually look into this....a few family members and I are looking at a vacation house and we could certainly use this instead of other bank financing.

Most likely no. Only the equity above 20% qualifies for the 1.99% rate.
