Lock in a HELOC balance to a fixed rate and term.

Our unique Loan-in-a-Line feature allows Regions home equity line of credit customers to convert all or a portion of their outstanding variable rate balance to a fixed rate with a fixed term, offering:

  • Stability - when you lock in a fixed rate, you'll always know what your rate and payment will be.
  • Savings – when you lock in a low rate, you can potentially save money over time if rates increase.
  • Flexibility – choose to lock in all or a portion of your balance. As you pay down your Loan in a Line balance, the difference becomes available again as funds that can be “re-borrowed” under your home equity line of credit variable rate.
