    The national average rate on home equity lines of credit was 4.43%, according to SNL Financial's most recent analysis, with 24 states offering lower average rates and 26 offering higher average rates. Massachusetts had the lowest average rate at 3.87%, while New Mexico again offered the highest average rate at 5.31%. While the states offering lower than the national average rates were not as tightly clustered geographically as was the case for 10-year home equity loans, there were still only four states primarily west of the Mississippi that offered lower average rates, Louisiana, Colorado, Utah and Hawaii.

    Nutley, N.J.-based Proponent Federal Credit Union posted the lowest average rate among credit unions at 1.99%. Proponent's 12 branches are split, with eight in New Jersey and four in North Carolina.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
