Home Equity Comparison


Unlock the Power of Your Home's Equity

A home equity loan or line of credit is an ideal way to finance home improvements, big purchases (like a car), a dream vacation, a wedding, consolidating debt, and more.  The amount available of the equity in your home is determined based on a percentage of your home's appraised value minus the balance owed of your existing mortgage. Refer to the tabs below to learn more about Cardinal Bank Home Equity Loans and LInes of Credit and a comparison of the two.


The main difference between a Home Equity Loan and a Home Equity Line of Credit are the interest rates and the repayment policies. The Home Equity Loan will have a fixed rate while the Home Equity Line will typically have a variable rate.  Using the equity in your home is an advantageous way to borrow money vs. credit cards or other loans.
