The maximum APR is 18% for properties located in FL, GA, TN, AL, SC, VA, MD, DC, AR, WV and MS. The maximum APR is 16% for properties located in NC. Offer and rates subject to change without notice.

Fixed Rate/Fixed Term advances are available for terms of 60 months, 120 months, 180 months, and 240 months. A term of 360 months is available but only for such advances taken at closing and to be disbursed immediately upon expiration of the rescission period. Each must be at least $5,000 per advance, and you may have up to five (5) outstanding advances under this option at any given time. The APR is indexed to the Prime Rate in effect on the day preceding the first day of the billing cycle in which each such advance is taken, which was 5.25% as of 8/1/19, plus a margin. Current fixed rates range from 6.39% to 7.54%. For each advance taken under the Fixed Rate/Fixed Term option, there will be a $15 processing fee if and as allowed by applicable law.
3 For new lines of $10,000 or more, SunTrust will advance certain costs on your behalf, including the first property/collateral valuation obtained by SunTrust, but excluding: any subsequent property/collateral valuation not required by us; and, if required, title insurance and related fees, and any new or increased homeowner’s and/or flood insurance premiums. For equity lines secured by a condominium unit, you may be required to pay a Condominium Questionnaire fee, between $50 and $500, to your Home Owner’s Association. However, if your account is closed within three (3) years, we will add any closing costs we advanced on your behalf to your outstanding balance for our reimbursement. Total closing costs generally range from $100 to $2,000.
