Home Equity Loans

Are you planning to tackle some home improvements or working to consolidate debt? Home equity lines of credit (HELOC) allow you to use the equity or value of your home as collateral. 

Increase your financial flexibility with a Kitsap Bank Home Equity Loan or Powerline Home Equity Line of Credit. Both loan options offer appealing rates and terms. Best of all, some of the interest can be tax-deductible*.

*Consult a tax advisor regarding the deductibility of interest.

    • Owner Occupied only - The Bank will pay all of the initial third party fees such as but not limited to appraisal, credit reports, recording fees, flood determinations, title and escrow fees.  In the event an appraisal is needed to evaluate your loan request, the cost for the appraisal must be paid up front before the appraisal order is placed.  The appraisal fee will then be credited back at the time of loan closing.  Where appraisal services are rendered and the loan is not originated; the appraisal fee is not refunded. If this line of credit is terminated on or before the 36th month from the Credit Agreement date you will be required to repay all fees and charges initially paid by the Bank. Third party fees and charges generally total between $481.00 and $3,457.00 and the Bank will provide you with an itemization of these fees upon closing. You may terminate your Line of Credit by paying the balance in full and requesting us to reconvey the Deed of Trust that secures the Credit Lien. You may pay your Credit Line to a zero balance and not pay this fee if you intend to keep the credit line active.
