What is a HELOC?

A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a line of credit secured by the available equity of your Hawaii home. The available equity of your home is the total value of your house minus the amount you still owe on it. For example, if your home is worth $500,000 and you still owe $200,000, your equity in your home is $300,000. A HELOC is used to access your equity in a credit line that can be used to purchase the things you want or need. Many Hawaii residents use HELOCs to make renovations, complete home improvement projects, or make major purchases.

Features:

  • Available for homes in Hawaii
  • Uses the equity in your home
  • Lines of credit available up to $1,000,0001
  • No annual fee
  • Access line of credit by Equity ExpressSM Visa® card or checks
  • Free Online Banking with eStatements

Already have a HELOC and want a fixed rate?
Request a Fixed Rate Equity Loan Option (FRELO)

WHAT IS A FIXED RATE EQUITY LOAN OPTION?
A Fixed Rate Equity Loan Option allows you to get a fixed interest rate on any portion of your Home Equity Line of Credit balance. A FRELO is a loan you take out of your HELOC during the draw period. As you pay this back, your HELOC line is replenished. A Fixed Rate Equity Loan Option allows you to enjoy fixed rates for a set amount of time, rather than paying variable rates.

 

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF A FIXED RATE EQUITY LOAN OPTION?
The biggest advantage to a fixed rate equity loan is the consistency of predictable monthly payments. If you are planning to pay for a major purchase or renovation project using HELOC funds, you can lock in a fixed interest rate for a set term. At ASB, we allow you to take out up to 5 fixed rate equity loans on your HELOC at one time. These fixed rate options are available at any time during the draw period of your HELOC. With our competitive FRELO, you can choose loan terms between 3, 5, 7, 10 and 15 years with a fixed interest rate. A fixed rate HELOC loan may be a great option if you have a planned expense but still want access to funds should you need additional money.

Offer is for a qualifying first or second lien request on an owner-occupant or first lien request on investor applications received 8/1/19 through 11/30/19 that fund by 12/31/19. Promotional rates require automatic payment from an American Savings Bank (ASB) Kalo Plus or Kalo Deluxe Checking account and are subject to change or discontinuance without notice. The promotional rates for non Kalo Plus or Kalo Deluxe customers are 2.00% for two years, 3.00% fixed for three years, or 4.00% for four years. Automatic payment from an American Savings Bank checking account is required for this promotional rate. Cancellation of automatic payment anytime during the life of the loan may increase your rate to the non-discounted rate. Offer is not available for a second lien request on an investor line, on properties listed for sale within the prior six months, to any existing ASB HELOC account opened prior to 8/1/19 and secured by the subject property, or when paying down/off any existing ASB residential mortgage loan balance. If you have not closed your loan 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 11/1/19 is 4.75% 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%; maximum APR is 18.00%). If your line amount is more than $25,000, a fee of $500 will be charged if you request we close it within three years from the agreement date. This fee will not be charged if: (i) your line is $25,000 or less, (ii) you sell the Collateral to an unrelated/unaffiliated third-party, or (iii) you payoff your loan with proceeds from a real estate secured loan from us. EEX must be secured by fee simple property located in Hawaii.

For owner-occupant EEXs up to $250,000 (excluding properties listed for sale within the prior six months), receive a credit of up to $500 at loan closing 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.
