*Special Home Equity Line offer - 1.99% APR for the first 12 months. Current non promotional APR of 3.75%, based on Prime + 0.50%

This promotion is available for a limited time and may be withdrawn at any time.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 1.99% 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 APR will never exceed 16.00%. The minimum monthly payments will be interest-only payments. A balloon payment will result if only interest payments are made over the 15 year term. Minimum line amount of $20,000. Maximum line amount of $125,000 for second liens. A $10,000 initial advance is required at closing or upon the end of rescission period.
