*The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is variable and based upon an index plus a margin. Variable Rate Pricing. The variable rate for the EquityOne Line of Credit (HELOC) is based on the Prime Rate (the index) as published in the Wall Street Journal plus a margin. Prime Rate is currently 7.00%. The margin ranges from 0.0% to 3.75% and is based on the borrower’s loan amount, occupancy, lien position, credit score, debt-to-income ratio, loan-to-value, and payment method. The APR will never exceed 18.00% or be less than 4.00% at any time during the account term. The APR and minimum payment are subject to change, depending on market conditions. If you only make the minimum payment (interest only), you will not repay any of the principal balance. At the time of the 120th payment, the payment amount will be based on a 240-month amortization of your balance and due monthly thereafter. A change in the APR will cause the balance to be repaid more quickly or more slowly, which may cause the payment to be increased to repay the balance by the maturity date.
