Q: How long does it take to get a HELOC?
A: The entire process usually takes 2-3 weeks from the time we receive your completed application until you have the funds in hand.
Q: What documents are required?
A: We need the following documents:
- Completed, signed mortgage loan application
- Mortgage statement showing the current balance on your 1st mortgage
- Insurance information verifying the coverage limits and cost of your home owners’ insurance
- Paystub or W2 showing YTD income for all borrowers
- Information regarding HOA dues, if applicable
Q: Will I need to get an appraisal?
A: That depends. We subscribe to a service that allows us to get an estimated value on your home quickly and at no cost. If that gives enough value to proceed, then no appraisal is required. If our estimate does not come in high enough, you may ask us to order a full appraisal. The appraisal fee of approximately $400 must be paid in advance, and will add about 7-10 days to the loan process.
Q: What is the cost for a HELOC?
A: Costs typically run about $250 for a HELOC if an appraisal is not required, or $650 if an appraisal is needed.
