1 HOME EQUITY LINE OF CREDIT: APR = The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) of 5.25% is a variable rate based on an Index minus 0.25%. The Index is the highest United States Prime Rate as published in the Eastern Edition of The Wall Street Journal on the last business day before the start of each month’s billing cycle. As of 4/1/19 that Prime Rate was 5.50%. The APR can never be below the minimum APR of 3.00% and will not exceed a maximum APR of 18.00%. Obtain credit advances for 10 years (Draw Period), and make interest only payments or principal and interest payments during this period, then repay the remaining balance over the next 10 years (Repayment Period). Principal balance will not decrease if interest-only payments are made. The maximum combined (existing mortgage loan balances plus Home Equity Credit Line limit) loan-to-value ratio (LTV) is 80% of market value. The minimum line of credit amount is $10,000. The maximum line of credit is $300,000 with LTVs up to 80%. The minimum credit advance that you can receive is $500. Third party fees may need to be reimbursed if the loan is closed within the first 24 months.

2 HOME EQUITY LOAN: APR = Annual Percentage Rate. A loan amount of $100,000 and greater has a 3.49% APR and is representative of a 5-year term home equity loan in first lien position with no points, and up to 80% loan-to-value (LTV). A loan amount of less than $100,000 has a 3.74% APR and is representative of a 5-year term home equity loan in first lien position with no points, and up to 80% LTV. PAYMENT EXAMPLE: A loan at an APR of 3.49% would have 60 months principal and interest payments of $18.19 per $1,000 borrowed. A loan at an APR of 3.74%, would have 60 months principal and interest payments of $18.30 per $1,000 borrowed.
