Product details can be found in our Important Terms brochure; ask for a copy. Rate and offer are subject to change without notice. Evidence of adequate property insurance required. Additional Combined Loan-to-Value (CLTV) restrictions may apply depending on property values. CLTV is calculated by dividing the aggregate total of all mortgages by the value of the property. All Home Equity Lines of Credit feature a 10-year draw period followed by a repayment period of 120, 180 or 240 months depending on the balance at end of draw period. An Annual Fee up to $75 applies, subject to limitations in some states, but is waived for the first year and for customers with certain relationships; ask your loan officer for details. Minimum credit line is $15,000. Maximum credit line amount is $2,000,000. Other products and terms available.

2The APR of 5.79% (Prime plus 0.54%) shown reflects a limited-time discount off standard pricing for the draw period and is based on a $75,000 line amount on an owner occupied, single-family residence in second lien position, 70% Combined Loan-to-Value (CLTV) and 740+ FICO® Score. Not all applicants will qualify for this rate. Rates are dependent on the verified value and occupancy status of your home, any existing debt against your property, the amount you borrow, your personal credit history, and your relationship with our bank. APR during the draw period is variable and may change as often as monthly. APR during the repayment period varies based on loan-to-value ratio and occupancy status at the time of origination. The APR during the repayment period will likely be higher than the APR applicable during the draw period. Prime is the Prime Rate as published in The Wall Street Journal. As of September 27, 2018 the Prime Rate was 5.25%. APR does not include costs other than interest. The maximum APR is 18% or the lesser maximum allowed by state law. Minimum APR is 3%. A $75,000 credit line balance at 5.79% APR (Prime plus 0.54%) has an estimated monthly interest-only payment of $48.25 for every $10,000 borrowed, subject to a minimum payment requirement of $100 per month during the draw period.
