* The appraised value multiplied by 80%, less the remaining balance on any existing mortgage.
** Annual Percentage Rate. 3.90% fixed APR for credit qualified loans closing in first lien position. This rate applies to loans up to a 50% Combined Loan-to-Value (CLTV) ratio with a 15 year repayment term. Other rates are available up to 80% CLTV and loans closing in first or second lien position. A 5 year draw period is included in the 15 year repayment term. During the 5 year draw period, payments are interest only. The interest is calculated daily based on the balance owed and the rate for each day of the month and is then aggregated to determine the amount of the monthly payment. After this period, payments will convert to principal and interest calculated at the remaining 10 year term. Loan payment example: a $50,000 loan at 3.90% for 15 years, interest only payment would be approximately $165.62 and will vary slightly depending on the number of days in the month. The principal and interest payment would be $503.85 calculated over the remaining term of 10 years. SEFCU offers a rate reduction of 0.25% based on the published rate for Active US Military and Veterans. Learn more about Paying It Back.  All loans are subject to credit worthiness.
