*This promotion is available for a limited time and may be withdrawn at any time. The promotional Annual Percentage Rate (APR) will be fixed at 3.74% and will not increase until the first day of the thirteenth month after the date of the loan closing. After the introductory period, the loan will become a variable rate loan. The subsequent APR may vary from prime rate to prime rate plus 0.50% (margin is dependent on the amount of the line). The prime rate is based on the prime rate published in the Eastern Edition of the Wall Street Journal. On October 31, 2019 that rate was 4.75%. The current APR for a Home Equity Line of Credit using the prime rate plus the 0.50% margin is 5.25%. The floor rate at the end of the initial 12 month period will be 3.95%. The APR will never exceed 16.00%. The minimum monthly payments will be interest-only payments. Payments must be automatically debited monthly from a Peoples Bank checking account to qualify for the introductory APR. A balloon payment will result if interest only payments are made over the 15 year term. Minimum line amount of $15,000. Maximum line amount of $300,000. A $15,000 initial advance is required at closing or upon the end of rescission period or the borrower will become ineligible for the 3.74% introductory APR.
