Real-Life Renovation Stories
When Matt and Laura Tharp wanted to make their kitchen renovations happen, they learned how home equity solutions can make it possible.
1 After the 4.99% Annual Percentage Rate (APR) 6-month introductory period, the APR on a home equity line of credit will be a variable rate based on Wall Street Journal Prime Rate (8.50% as of 7/27/23) plus or minus a margin (currently as low as Prime Rate – 0.26% or 8.24%). The maximum rate is 18% and the product floor rate is 2.99%. Prime may change at any time and is subject to change without notice. The introductory period begins on the date of account opening.
After the introductory period ends, any and all remaining balances will automatically convert to the variable APR per the terms of the Home Equity Line of Credit agreement. In order to receive the offered rate, a minimum of $10,000 in new money and direct debit of loan payment from a First Commonwealth Bank checking account is required, otherwise the rate will be 0.25% higher. An early termination fee of $500 or 2% of the line amount, whichever is less, may apply if the line is closed within 36 months of account opening. An Annual Fee of $50 will be charged to your credit line. A $75 rate lock or unlock fee may be charged if you use the rate lock feature to convert a portion of your balance between a variable rate and a fixed rate. If a deed transfer is necessary, title insurance and attorney's fees may be required. Taxes and property insurance are always required and flood insurance is required where necessary. Consult your tax advisor about the deductibility of interest. Other rates and terms are available. Offer valid for applications February 1, 2024 through March 31, 2024. Offer subject to change or withdrawal at any time.
