Your home’s equity may help you finance a large expense such as a home repair or renovation. We have several different Personal Loan Products to help meet your needs.
  • Home Equity Line of Credit
  • Home Equity Term Loans
  • CD Secured Loans
  • Automobile Loans
  • Boat and RV Loans


A home equity line of credit (often called HELOC and pronounced Hee-lock) is a loan in which the lender agrees to lend a maximum amount within an agreed period, where the collateral is the borrower's equity in his/her house. HELOC's are also called a revolving line of credit as the balance can fluctuate as you pay them down and/or borrow the funds for whatever you need. HELOC's are often used to fund major purchases, such as education, home improvements, or medical bills.


Considering a major purchase? Your home’s equity may help you finance a large expense such as a home repair or renovation, or simply paying off your credit cards. A home-equity loan, also known as a second mortgage, lets homeowners borrow money by leveraging the equity in their homes. These loans differ from a Home Equity Line of Credit as they are amoritized with a fixed monthly payment.


Borrowing against your own funds in the form of a Certificate of Deposit (CD) is a fast, convenient, low cost way of obtaining a loan.


Whether you need a new car, used car or to refinance a current auto loan, Connections Bank is pleased to provide Auto Loans, Used Car Loans, and Auto Loan Refinance at competitive rates. Visit our Auto Loans page for more information.


Get where you want to go — from the high seas, lakes or the open road — at a competitively low rate. We can provide financing for the boat or RV of your dreams.

Call us today. We would be happy to discuss which one of our loans best meets your needs.
