Fifth Third Bank

Home Equity Line of Credit Loans

Fifth Third Equity FlexlineSM1 is a revolving credit line that is secured by the equity in your home—the difference between the appraised or market value of your home and the amount of your outstanding mortgage balance.

How does a home equity line of credit (HELOC) work?

With the Fifth Third Equity Flexline, you can borrow against the equity in your home at competitive home equity credit line rates. As you repay the HELOC balance, funds become available again for your use. Plus the interest you pay may be 100% tax deductible.3

Use a home equity credit line to:

  • Pay off high-interest debt
  • Pay for home improvements
  • Finance an education
  • Arrange a vacation
  • Finance an adoption
  • Purchase large-ticket items (automobile, furniture, etc.)
