1 Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOC) are available to qualified applicants on owner-occupied conforming residential real property in first or second lien position up to a 70% maximum loan-to-value for primary residences and second homes. Second liens may not be written behind an existing HELOC. Standard closing costs generally range from $450 to $2,500 on home equity lines. Subordination fees to other lenders vary and apply on all line amounts. The $75 annual Home Equity Line of Credit fee will be waived for the first year. The $75 annual fee will apply for subsequent years. Property insurance is required. A prepayment fee of 2% of maximum credit limit or $500, whichever is less, applies if the credit line is paid off and closed prior to the three-year anniversary date of the credit agreement.
2 A Fixed-Rate Advance (FRA) is a feature that can be used within a variable-rate Home Equity Line of Credit. An FRA allows you to take any portion of your outstanding variable-rate balance and lock it for a specific term and fixed rate. Check your Home Equity Line of Credit Agreement for details on how adding an FRA may affect other balances and payments you may already have.
3 2.99% Annual Percentage Rate (APR) for 12 months or 3.99% APR for 36 months is available on a FRA of $25,000 or more with a 70% loan-to-value (LTV) or less. To qualify for this offer, you must submit your request to lock in a fixed rate prior to taking the advance. To take advantage of 12 month promotional FRA rate, borrower must have at least 15 months left in their draw period. To take advantage of 36 month promotional FRA rate, borrower must have at least 40 months left in their draw period. This offer applies to new advances only, and the qualifying advance amount must be taken in one single advance. A one-time $75 fee will be charged for the fixed-rate advance. This offer is valid October 15, 2020 through December 31, 2020.
4 After the fixed rate expires, the APR is a variable rate which changes over time, and is calculated by adding a margin to the monthly prime rate as published in the Wall Street Journal, Western Edition. The prime rate was 3.25% as of October 1, 2020. The margin will be determined based on your creditworthiness, property type, occupancy, and loan-to-value. The APR will never be less than 4.50% or more than 18.75%. To qualify for the quoted rates, borrower must maintain a qualifying Tri Counties Bank personal checking account. Rates quoted include a 0.25% discount for AFT (Automated Funds Transfer) from a Tri Counties Bank checking account; without AFT the APR will increase by 0.25%.
Example of Fixed-Rate Option Interest-Only Payment:
A $25,000 FRA with a 2.99% APR for 12 months is approximately $62.29 per month. The actual monthly payment may vary based on the FRA request date relative to your scheduled monthly payment date. After the fixed-rate advance term has expired, any remaining outstanding principal balance will revert back to the current variable rate on the Home Equity Line of Credit. At that time, any remaining FRA balance will be added to any existing variable balance. Your payment may increase substantially. To avoid a substantial increase to your payment at the end of the fixed-rate term, you may make additional principal payments during your fixed-rate term.
