Home equity loans and more
It’s amazing what your home can do for you, and what we can do for your home. Our home equity loans allow you to borrow against up to 95% of the equity in your home to pay for big-ticket items like tuition, weddings, home renovations or high-interest debt balances. The rates are typically lower than credit cards.
Our special MassHousing Home Improvement Programs offer low-cost financing for important renovations like lead paint removal, repairing your septic system and other structural repairs or improvements.
Home equity loans and credit lines
