Discover 8 HELOC misconceptions and why they're wrong

HELOC Misconceptions

There are some misleading assumptions about a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC). Discover 8 misconceptions and why they're wrong.

1. Under Texas law, the maximum you can borrow with a HELOC is 50% of the fair market value of your home, as long as the combined loan-to-value does not exceed 80% in cases where there is an existing first lien mortgage on the home. A minimum draw amount of $4,000 is required for each advance after the initial $10,000 advance at origination.

2. The home equity line of credit Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is variable and is based on the highest Prime Rate published each month-end in The Wall Street Journal Money Rates Table (the "Index"), +/- a margin based on credit worthiness. The current Index is 4.50%. Maximum APR is 17.90%. This Account has a Draw Period of 10 years, after which you will be required to repay any amounts within a 10-year term. Interest on your HELOC may be tax-deductible – please consult your tax advisor regarding the deductibility of interest. Property Insurance, including flood insurance as needed, is required to be maintained by the borrower. Loans Subject to approval. Additional terms, conditions, and restrictions may apply. Amplify Membership required. Consult the CFPB's Home Equity Line of Credit booklet as well as the Early HELOC Disclosure for more information. Federally insured by NCUA.

3. 'Rated Top 10 in Austin' is based on a recent market survey.
