The Annual Percentage Rates (APRs) are accurate as of 6/18/18. The total term of the Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is 240 months.

However, for the first 6 months from the date of the loan there is an introductory rate of 2.99% APR which is not based on the index and margin used for later adjustments. For the remaining 9.5 years the terms will be as follows. On 6/18/18, the WSJ Prime Rate was 5.00% resulting in the following APRs: $10,000.00 - $99,999.99: 6.00% (Prime + 1.00%), $100,000.00 - $249,999.99: 5.50% (Prime + .50%), $250,000.00 - $499,999.99: 5.50% (Prime + .50%), $500,000 +: 5.25% (Prime + .25). The APR may vary based on the use of auto-debit.

Rates will change on the 1st day of the statement cycle following a Prime Rate change. Interest only minimum payments required during the Draw Period. During the “Repayment Period”, the remaining 10 years, the APR is a variable rate based on the WSJ Prime + 1.00% and will be calculated 45 days prior to the initial maturity of the Draw Period, subsequent changes will occur on the 1st day of the statement cycle following a Prime Rate change. The minimum APR is 3.99% and the maximum APR is 20.00%. During the Repayment Period, monthly principal and interest payments will be required to fully amortize the loan.
