No matter what your dreams, SMCU's Home Equity Loan is a smart way to get cash. You've worked hard to increase your home's equity, so why not take advantage of it? A drive by appraisal for loan amounts up to $100,000.00 and a full appraisal will be required on loan amounts over $100,000.00 up to $200,000. All Appraisal costs will be paid for in advance from the member applying for the loan request. The maximum loan amount is $200,000.00.
