Bank of America HELOC FAQ

How much can you borrow with a HELOC?

HELOCs are lines of credit that are secured by your home. Once you get approved for a certain amount, you can access your funds by check, phone, credit card, or online up to your HELOC amount.

Bank of America HELOC allows borrowers to apply for lines of credit of up to $1,000,000. Note that the maximum loan amount you can borrow will vary depending on the value of the property, how much you owe on it, and your creditworthiness.

This lender's maximum loan to value rate is 80% for qualified borrowers. That means the total debt secured by the property cannot exceed 80% of its value. Let's say you own a property with a current market value of $100k, but you still owe $20k on your mortgage. Your equity would be $80k. In this scenario, if you have excellent credit, you may qualify for a line of credit of up to $60k.
