Whether you are looking to make home improvements, buy a car, consolidate debts or pay for unplanned expenses, the equity you have in your home could be the solution. Affinity's Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) gives you the key to getting more out of your home, combining the flexibility of a variable-rate line of credit with the benefits of fixed rate loan options.

With a HELOC, you can also:

  • Apply for other rates available for up to 80% combined loan-to-value.
  • Lock-in up to three fixed-rate loan2 options during the draw period of your loan without needing to reapply. Lock-in does not apply to the introductory rate.
  • Draw funds for up to 10 years, with a 20 year repayment term.
  • Reduce your monthly payments as you repay what you’ve borrowed.

Two Repayment Options:

Traditional HELOC:

Principal and interest payments during the draw period and repayment.

Interest Only HELOC:

Pay interest only during the draw period. During repayment, payments are amortized to pay the balance in full over the remaining term.

1 APR = Annual percentage rate. All loans are subject to credit review and approval. Advertised APR is variable and subject to change. 2.99% annual percentage rate (APR) is an introductory fixed rate for the first 12 months for qualified home equity line of credit borrowers. After the introductory period, a variable APR as low as Wall Street Journal prime minus .25% APR as of 08/08/2019. The introductory fixed rate is for a maximum Combined Loan-To-Value (CLTV) ratio of 80%, with a maximum loan amount of $1,000,000. After the introductory fixed rate expires, the fully indexed rate may include a 0.25% discounted rate for automatic payments from an Affinity account. Other rates are available based on loan amount, credit characteristics, and CLTV up to a maximum of 80%. The standard minimum APR (floor rate) is 3.00% and the maximum APR (ceiling rate) assessed by Affinity cannot increase by more than 6% above the initial fully indexed rate (NOT based on the introductory interest rate). Offered rates are subject to change without notice. Your actual interest rate is based on our review of your creditworthiness and the available equity in your home and is contingent upon you granting Affinity a valid first or second mortgage. If the credit limit is less than $250,000, there are no upfront fees. If the credit limit is $250,000 or higher, the borrower will be required to pay for a full title insurance policy. For all HELOCs where a state mortgage tax or other state fees are charged borrower will be responsible to pay this at closing and may take as an advance from HELOC. If borrower pays off and closes the line within the first 36 months, they will be required to repay the third party fees paid by Affinity.

Home equity lines of credit are available in all states except Texas. Certain states may require a closing attorney. State specific fees may apply at closing. Satisfactory Homeowners’ Insurance is required. Satisfactory Flood Insurance may be required. Title Insurance may be required based on loan amount. Eligible properties include owner-occupied, 1-4 family residences, warrantable condominiums and townhomes. Investment properties, second homes, vacation homes, cooperatives, mobile homes, and purchase money transactions are excluded.

2 Within the Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) there is a fixed rate option which you may use for up to 3 advances within your available credit line, during the draw period only, with a maximum repayment term of 10 years. When you choose this option, the interest rate you receive for that advance will be fixed until the balance is repaid. Your fixed interest rate will be 1% higher than the fully indexed rate on your line at time of the fixed loan request. If the lock in is during the introductory period, the rate will be marked up based on the fully indexed rate and NOT the introductory rate.
