The funds obtained from a Home Equity Loan can be used at the borrower's discretion, meaning they have the freedom to allocate the money towards any purpose they choose. The flexibility offered by a Home Equity Loan empowers homeowners to address their unique financial needs and goals without any restrictions on how the funds are utilized. By tapping into the equity of their home, borrower's are able to make decisions that align with their personal financial objectives and long-term plans

Some popular uses of a Home Equity Loan include:

Improvement Projects

A popular use of home equity funds is repairing or renovating a house, or even enlarging it with an addition.

Educational Costs

With their low rates, home equity loans can be a more cost-effective way to cover tuition costs than regular college loans.

Credit Union of Texas Home Equity Loan FAQs

There are many.

Our Home Equity Loans have much lower interest rates than other types of credit, such as credit cards or unsecured personal loans. They have fixed monthly payments which can be very low, with payment terms of up to 30 years.* Plus, there's no prepayment penalties.

If you use your funds to pay for home improvements, your interest payments may be tax-deductible. Make sure you discuss this with your tax advisor to get complete details.

Texas law limits home equity loans and lines of credit to 80% loan-to-value (LTV). This is a measure of how much you owe compared to the value of the home. At CUTX, the minimum home equity loan amount starts at $75,000.00. 
Our fees are competitive and depend on the specifics of your loan. A Mortgage Loan Officer is available to answer any questions you have about fees.
Yes, a few. The home must be in Texas, and be single-family, owner occupied. That includes houses, condos, townhomes or duplexes. CUTX does not provide home equity loans or mortgages for mobile homes or manufactured homes. And borrowers can have only one Home Equity Loan at a time.

Aside from the list of guidelines and restrictions set by the state of Texas, there are few disadvantages to home equity loans. Borrowers that do not qualify for a home equity loan may still have other loan options available to them.

Some borrowers do not feel comfortable taking out a new loan against their home once they've already paid it down. But as long as you intend to repay the loan in full, there's nothing wrong with using a home equity loan to get a lower interest rate.


The stuff, loan team and customer service were very helpful throughout my car loan process. Credit Union of Texas was able to offer me the best rate available for my vehicle. I would highly recommended CUTX to all of my friends and family.

I’ve been a member for almost 30 years, I can’t imagine banking anywhere else. You’re more than another account at CUTX, you’re a member, you’re a family.
