2Introductory Rate(s): The Introductory Rate promotion of Prime minus 0.01 (currently 3.24% variable APR) is currently in effect for applications received between August 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020 and which close by March 31, 2021. To be eligible for the Introductory Rate, you must take minimum initial draws totaling at least $30,000 within 15 calendar days of account opening. After such disbursement, you must maintain a minimum outstanding balance of at least $30,000 until the close of the 3rd monthly billing cycle. Additionally, you must set up and maintain automatic payments from a BBVA deposit account. Introductory Rates are not available for Purchase Money Second Lines or line increases on existing BBVA HELOCs. The rate is subject to forfeiture during the 6-month Introductory Period if you fail to maintain that minimum outstanding balance or if you become 60 or more days past due at any time. In that case, any outstanding balance and any subsequent credit advances will accrue interest at the standard rate(s) as described below and in your credit agreement. You may be approved for a HELOC but determined ineligible for the offered Introductory Rate.
3Standard Rate(s): After the 6-month Introductory Period ends, any outstanding balances and any subsequent credit advances on your HELOC will accrue interest at the standard rate(s) contained in your credit agreement. “Prime” means the highest per annum Prime Rate of interest published by the Wall Street Journal, which was 3.25% on 3/17/2020. APR will vary with Prime; will be based on your collateral property location, credit line amount, CLTV ratio and other factors; and can range from Prime plus 0.74% (currently 3.99% variable APR) to Prime plus 7.10% (currently 10.35% variable APR) (includes 1.00% interest rate reduction for automatic payment from a BBVA deposit account). APR will not exceed 18% or go below 2.50% at any time during the term of your account.
Fixed-Rate Option: You can convert to a fixed rate and fixed payment at any time during the draw period. Minimum payment due on a fixed-rate option advance includes principal and interest in fixed monthly payments. A $75 fee is charged for each fixed rate conversion option that is exercised (not applicable in Texas), waived for the first transaction. Your APR may increase if you exercise this option. A fixed-rate option, in the minimum amount of $2,500.00 ($4,000 in Texas), may be requested only by phone or in person at a BBVA office. You are limited to two fixed-rate option requests in a 365-day period and to a maximum of three fixed-rate options outstanding at any time. The term of each Fixed-Rate Option will be the term you select at the time of that option, with a maximum of 15 years.
All HELOC applications are subject to program eligibility, underwriting, and collateral requirements and approval, including credit approval. Property insurance required, including flood insurance where applicable. Certain property types are not eligible collateral. Available only to California, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Alabama and Florida residents. HELOCs have a 1-year draw period, which we may renew annually up to a maximum of 10 years. During the draw period you will be required to make monthly payments of accrued interest, plus any principal balance in excess of the credit limit, with a minimum payment of $75. CHOOSING TO REPAY ONLY ACCRUED INTEREST DURING THE DRAW PERIOD MAY CAUSE YOUR MONTHLY PAYMENT TO INCREASE, POSSIBLY SUBSTANTIALLY, ONCE YOUR HELOC TRANSITIONS TO THE REPAYMENT PERIOD. Following the draw period, the length of the repayment period will depend on the amount of the then-outstanding balance. If your outstanding balance is less than $20,000, the repayment period will be 10 years. If the outstanding balance is $20,000 or greater, the repayment period will be 15 years. During the repayment period, the minimum monthly payment will be an amount sufficient to repay the outstanding balance over the remaining term at the APR in effect at the start of the repayment period. If rates subsequently increase, your minimum payments may not be sufficient to fully repay the principal that is outstanding on your line. If they are not, you will be required to pay the entire outstanding balance in a single balloon payment at maturity (not applicable in Texas). Texas HELOCs: If rates increase after the start of the repayment period, your monthly payment will increase so that the balance is fully repaid at maturity.
