To use your Home Equityline, you'll receive special checks FREE which can be used much like a regular checking account. Simply write out a check of $500 or more, and you'll get the dollars you need for that special purchase or investment.

Once you qualify, a Home Equityline or loan can be especially useful when you need, or want, available cash for expenses such as college tuition, unexpected medical bills, debt consolidation, a major purchase such as an auto or boat, a dream vacation, or more.

*Introductory Rate of 2.49% Annual Percentage Rate (APR) as of 1/21/2013 is fixed for the first 9 months only and is available on lines with a loan to value (LTV) ratio of 80% or less, minimum credit score of 720, and required auto payment from a Baylake Bank checking. After the introductory rate period, the variable rate reverts back to the floor rate or the fully indexed rate, whichever is higher. The fully indexed variable rate for lines of credit equals “index plus margin” and ranges from Prime + 1.00% to Prime + 2.00%. (Prime means the prime rate published in the Wall Street Journal.) The margin is determined by the LTV ratios. Monthly interest only payments required. Available on revolving lines of $10,000 to $250,000 for new relationships or increases of at least $10,000 on current Baylake Bank lines to individuals of owner-occupied homes. After the introductory period, the APR will not exceed 18.00% or be less than 4.00% for 80% or less LTV (4.50% for 80.01-85% LTV). There is an annual fee of $50 after the first year.

All loans are subject to Baylake Bank credit criteria including property and flood insurance as applicable. Monthly payments do not include taxes and insurance premiums.

Approximate equity loan value $ 44,000

Advantages of a Home Equityline

Current tax laws make Baylake Bank Home Equityline a beneficial way for you to borrow money.

While tax deductions for interest expenses on other consumer loans have been phased out, Home Equityline interest (subject to certain limitations) may be 100% reportable as mortgage interest.  Please consult your tax advisor for deductibility, etc.

A Home Equityline is a versatile, handy and advantageous source of funds. 

In addition, a Baylake Bank Home Equityline offers a "conversion option" which enables you to fix a competitive rate on a portion or all of your outstanding Home Equityline balance.  Then, as your principal is paid, it once again becomes available on your line of credit.
