* Annual Percentage Rate

1 HOME EQUITY LINE OF CREDIT ("HELOC"): APR as low as 0.75% APR fixed for one year (first 12 months), from the date your new home equity line of credit (HELOC) account is opened (initial fixed-rate term). After the initial fixed-rate term, the interest rate may vary on a quarterly basis on the statement cycle date of February, May, August, and November. The APR will equal the index, which is the weekly average yield on US Treasury Security adjusted to a constant maturity of one year, plus a margin of 2.50%, rounded up to the nearest 0.25%. The current index is 2.39% as of 8/1/2018. The current non-discounted fully indexed variable APR as of 8/1/2018 is 5.00%. The rate cannot increase or decrease more than 1.00% at each quarterly rate adjustment but may exceed that for the single adjustment at the end of a promotional discounted rate period. In no event will the APR be less than 4.25%, the floor rate, nor higher than 18.00% or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less. HawaiiUSA FCU charges no credit union closing cost; however, you will be required to pay certain fees to third parties at closing that may range from $0 - $1,500. These fees if required include, but are not limited to, title insurance, escrow fees, recording fee, trust review and trust documentation, mortgage or other document preparation fees, and property evaluation. May inquire for more details on the listed services. We will use a property evaluation to determine the property value. If the value is not sufficient, an appraisal will be required at your expense with the estimated cost varying from $500 to $1,500 depending on the property. When an initial draw of a minimum $25,000 or more new monies is advanced at opening, certain third party fees may be waived (fees waived include valuation assessment, title insurance, recordation, credit report and flood certification/tracking) when you agree to maintain the account balance less normal minimum monthly payments for a period of six-months from opening and do not close the loan within three (3) years from opening.
