Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is 5.85% as of March 24, 2023, to applicants for a fixed-rate home equity loan amortized over 60 months. APR is based upon a rate of 5.54%, an origination fee of 0.75%, closing costs of $150 and a loan-to-value up to 85%.

For example: A home equity loan with an amount financed of $100,000 at a 5.54% fixed rate and including a 0.75% origination fee and $150 in closing costs would have an APR of 5.85% and you would make 60 payments of $1,912 and pay total interest of $14,718.

For example: A home improvement loan with an amount financed of $50,000 at a 5.86% fixed rate and including a $100 origination fee would have an APR of 5.99% and you would make 36 payments of $1,518 and pay total interest of $4,645. Current APRs range from 5.95% to 7.37% APR. Loans are available in the amounts of $10,000 to $75,000. Terms lengths of up to 84 months available.
