Home Equity FAQs

1  8.250% APR (annual percentage rate) and other terms shown are accurate as of 2/2/2023 and apply to a HELOC for the most qualified applicant at CLTV up to 80%. Not all applicants will qualify for the lowest rate. Rates vary based on property value, line amount and other factors, and will vary for second or vacation homes. The minimum periodic payment is interest-only for the first ten years (“draw period”) followed by fully-amortizing payments to repay the balance over the final fifteen years. No draws will be allowed during the repayment period. Payments and rate can adjust monthly. Payments will increase if rates increase. At the end of the draw period, your required monthly payments will increase because you will be paying both principal and interest. The rate is calculated using an index plus a margin. The index used is the Prime Rate as published in The Wall Street Journal Western Edition on the last business day of the month prior to the change. The current prime index is 7.75. Minimum interest rate is 3%. Maximum interest rate is 17%.

2  7.258% APR (Annual Percentage Rate) and other terms shown are accurate, as of 2/2/2023. The fixed Annual Percentage Rate of 7.258% is available for 7-year second position home equity installment loans with loan-to-value (LTV) of 80% or less. Loan payment example: on a $50,000 loan for 120 months at 7.432% APR assuming no down payment, monthly payments would be $580.00. Loan terms available are 7, 10, 15, or 20 years; however, the monthly payment amount may differ from the example used above based on the loan amount and loan term selected. Payment example does not include amounts for taxes and insurance premiums. The monthly payment obligation will be greater if taxes and insurance are included and an initial customer deposit may be required if an escrow account for these Items is established. Loan approval is subject to credit approval and program guidelines. Interest rates and program terms are subject to change without notice. Property insurance and the fee to release an existing mortgage may be required. Fixed rate home equity loans are not available in 1st lien position. Home Equity Loans and lines of credit are available on California properties only.

3  May vary depending on current appraised value, creditworthiness and existing liens on property.

4 Rate and payments are based on Prime plus a margin. Changes to Prime will result in changes to the rate and payment.

5 Patelco runs a “soft” credit pull to determine which pre-qualification offer you qualify for. This doesn’t affect your credit score. If you choose to proceed with a loan application, Patelco will request your full credit report from one or more credit reporting agencies. This will be a “hard” pull and may affect your credit. If necessary, we may also share certain information about you with third parties, like our insurers, to process your request.
