About Home Equity

Access the cash you need, when you need it. You and your family can benefit from a Chase home equity line of credit to finance what’s important to you, such as home improvements, debt consolidation, tuition, and more. With a variable interest rate, monthly payment includes principal and interest on the funds you borrow—and with Chase OnlineSM Banking, you can conveniently schedule and make your payments, view account activity, transfer funds and more. 

Low rates

You can save on the interest you pay, since home equity rates can be lower than credit card or other loan rates.

Tax Benefits

When you use a home equity line of credit for home improvements, a portion of your interest may be tax deductible.

Minimal fees

Only a $50 origination fee and a $50 annual fee—no additional application fees or closing costs in most cases.

Chase customers can get up to 0.62% off the standard variable rate.

when you provide contracts or bids for an upcoming $30,000 home improvement project OR you withdraw $30,000 from your home equity line at closing

Chase Fixed-Rate Lock Option

If you like predictable monthly payments, you should consider switching from a variable rate on all or a portion of the outstanding balance of your line of credit with the Chase Fixed-Rate Lock Option. You can request to lock in a rate at your closing or during your draw period.

Lock Option Benefits

  • Predictable monthly payments.
  • No fees to switch to a fixed rate.
  • Flexibility of maintaining up to five locks at once.
  • Locks can extend into your repayment period.

Here’s how it works

  • You may have the option of locking in a specific amount at a fixed rate for the remaining term of your line of credit.
  • You can have up to five locks at any time and create names for each lock to stay organized.
  • As you pay down the locked balance, the available line of credit amount increases and becomes available for use.
  • You can cancel a lock within 45 days from the beginning of the lock. There is a fee for 1% of the original amount if you cancel after 45 days of the start day.
