Home Equity Line of Credit
Advertised Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is for a home equity line of credit effective as of date indicated. Advertised rates and terms are subject to change without notice. Advertised APR includes a 0.25% discount when you set up automatic payments from any checking or savings account. Advertised APR is based on an excellent credit history and a line amount of $100,000. Your variable rate is calculated by adding a percentage to the most recent Prime rate published in the “Money Rates” section of The Wall Street Journal. Maximum rate is not to exceed 18% or the highest rate permitted by applicable state law. Fees due at closing include applicable third-party fees ranging from $0 to $9,500. An annual fee of $50 will be also be applied. This fee does not apply for TX residents. Additional terms and restrictions apply. Subject to borrower qualification. Upon approval, your home equity line of credit amount may vary based on your specific situation. Taking out a home equity line of credit may increase the total amount paid when compared to your current situation. You may choose a HELOC either with or without an early termination fee. HELOCs with an early termination fee require no payment at closing, but if you pay off the line within 36 months of opening, you must pay a fee of up to $450 and any applicable mortgage/documentary taxes we paid on your behalf at closing. HELOCs without an early termination fee require payment of $375 plus any applicable NY, VA, MD, or Orleans Parish mortgage tax or documentary transaction tax at the time of closing, but can be paid off at any time without additional fees. Early termination fees do not apply to Texas residents. For questions regarding these options, please contact the Consumer Lending Center at 1-877-475-1248.
