  1. Offer is a three-year promotion (Promotion Period): Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is 7.50% fixed for three years from the date your new EEX account is opened. Offer is for a qualifying first or second lien request on an owner-occupant or an investor application received 5/16/2024 through 5/31/2024 that funds by 6/31/2024. Promotional rates require automatic payments from an ASB personal checking account. If you do not have an ASB personal checking account, a Kalo Checking account must be opened. Please see the Personal Deposit Account Terms and Conditions for other terms, conditions and fees for Kalo Checking accounts. Cancellation of automatic payments anytime during the life of the loan may increase your rate to the current non-discounted rate. Offer is not available for properties listed for sale during the prior six months or to an ASB HELOC account secured by the subject property that was closed during the prior six months. If you have not signed your loan documents and a new promotion begins with a different rate, you may opt for the new promotion. After the Promotion Period ends, the interest rate is variable. Current Variable Rate effective 5/16/2024 is 8.50% APR, and is subject to change monthly based on the highest Prime Rate published in the Wall Street Journal, plus a margin (subject to the floor rate of 4.50% APR; maximum APR is 18.00%). If your line amount is more than $25,000, a fee of $500 will be assessed if you request we close it within three years from the agreement date. This fee will not be assessed if: (i) your line is $25,000 or less, (ii) you sell the collateral to an unrelated/unaffiliated third-party, or (iii) you pay off your loan with proceeds from a real estate secured loan from us. EEX must be secured by fee simple property located in Hawaii. Fire, hurricane, flood (if in flood hazard zone) and localized peril (if in a lava hazard zone) insurance policies are required at homeowner’s expense.
  2. ASB will process your application, and if approved, have the loan documents ready to schedule your signing appointment within 30 calendar days of receiving the completed application with all necessary documentation. This does not apply to the following: 1) applications for lines greater than $400,000; 2) applications that require an appraisal; 3) applications made simultaneously with an application for a residential first mortgage loan; 4) application delays relating to title, trust, insurance, and property condition reports; 5) application delays caused by business disruptions. 6)Effective for applications received 5/16/2024 through 5/31/2024.
  3. For Equity ExpressSM (EEX) Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) accounts up to $400,000 (excluding properties listed for sale within the prior six months), American Savings Bank (ASB) will pay or waive fees and costs for flood certification (up to $9), bank’s title insurance (up to $150), credit report (up to $2.50 per borrower), condo review, mortgage recording, recording fee for the release of third-party mortgage, and valuation through an automated valuation model and property condition report (up to $185) of ASB’s choice; however, at their own cost, customers may request an appraisal at an estimated cost between $500 and $1,500.
  4. For owner-occupant EEXs up to $400,000 (excluding properties listed for sale within the prior six months), receive a credit of up to $500 at loan signing to offset a third-party lender’s early closing fee when you make an initial advance on your new EEX to pay off your existing home equity line balance of at least $10,000 with that third-party lender. This early closing fee must be assessed and identified by the third-party lender through its payoff procedure in order to receive the credit at loan closing.
  5. Line of credit amount depends on home equity borrower’s creditworthiness and occupancy.
  6. You will be assessed a $50 annual fee on your first periodic statement and annually thereafter during the draw period. The annual fee may be waived by setting up automatic payments from an ASB Kalo DeluxeSM Checking or Private Banking Checking account at loan signing. If you do not have an ASB Kalo DeluxeSM Checking or Private Banking Checking account, one must be opened. Please see the Personal Deposit Account Terms and Conditions for other terms, conditions and fees. Cancellation of automatic payments from the Kalo Deluxe Checking or Private Banking Checking account anytime during the draw period may cancel the annual fee waiver and the fee will be assessed annually thereafter.
