Home Equity Term Loans 

Gulf Coast Bank's Home Equity Term Loan provides customers with more cash on hand rather than using credit cards or other personal loans that may have a higher interest rate. Customers typically use a home equity term loan for long-term, single costs such as debt consolidation, home renovations, or even an unexpected medical bill. A few of the features include:

  • Fixed rate term loan secured by either primary or secondary residence
  • Flexible terms to fit into your budget
  • Quick Closings
  • Possible tax deduction – consult your tax advisor

Home Equity Line Of Credit

Gulf Coast Bank's Home Equity Line of Credit provides customers with an increased cash flow or spending limit, much like a credit card but usually with a lower interest rate. Customers typically use a home equity line of credit for short term, recurring costs such as college tuition, auto and credit card payments, or even home improvements. A few of the features include:  

  • Variable rates as low as 3.25% APR*
  • Borrow up to 90% of your home’s value**
  • Closing cost assistance*** on lines 250,000 or less
  • Quick Closings
  • Possible tax deduction – consult your tax advisor


*The Home Equity Line of Credit is a variable rate plan based on the Wall Street Journal prime (the “Index”) plus a margin ranging between 0% and 2.25%. The APR of 3.25% is based on the index value as of 7/01/2015 and is only available for borrowers with a credit score of 750 or higher. The annual percentage rate (APR) is based on your credit worthiness and other credit criteria. The annual percentage rate will vary but will not exceed the maximum possible APR of 18%. 

**Up to maximum 90% loan to value available for line of credit of $250,000 or less secured by the primary residence (1–4 family owner occupied). The minimum line available is $25,000. Up to maximum 80% loan to value available for line of credit greater than $250,000, secured by the primary residence (1–4 family owner occupied) with a maximum line amount of $1,500,000 on first mortgages or $750,000 on second mortgages.
