Whether you're looking to buy a home and have a 20% down payment, or you're an existing homeowner with at least 20% equity in your home, the RBC Homeline Plan® could be the right solution for all your borrowing needs.
With the RBC Homeline Plan®, you have access to our Royal Credit Line® and Royal Bank® mortgages all in one plan, which you can designate for different needs, including home renovations, a new car, a vacation or your child's education. Plus, it's a great way to save money by consolidating any existing debts in your line of credit, under a lower interest rate.
Through the RBC Homeline Plan®, the money is yours to use any way you wish. Once your credit limit is set, you can borrow any time, up to your available credit limit on your credit line.
And, you can easily access funds from your credit line through online banking, ATMs, any RBC® branch or by writing a cheque.
The RBC Homeline Plan® allows you to split your mortgage and enjoy the advantages of both variable and fixed rates! The variable portion lets you take advantage of potential long-term savings, while the fixed rate portion protects you if rates rise.
In addition, the percentage(25) split does not have to be 50/50.
The chart below illustrates just one example of how the RBC Homeline Plan® might work for a Canadian homeowner with a mortgage, car loan, line of credit and outstanding credit card balances.
