1 The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) for a FRC HELOC is variable and is based on the Prime Rate published in the Wall Street Journal (3.25%as of 3/1/2021), plus a margin. This APR is based on an “auto-pay” discount of 0.25% for an Amerant Bank checking account customers. To qualify for the “auto-pay” discount, payments must be made via automatic payment from an Amerant Bank checking account which must be open and funded prior to closing. The discount may be terminated upon closure of the qualifying checking account. Your APR may vary based on credit history, property type, occupancy, lien position, line amount and other factors. At no time will the APR exceed 18%. Rates and programs are subject to change without notice. Contact us for current rates. Interest rate discounts may be available, ask us about Amerant Preferred. All advances will be subject to the variable rate APR according to the terms of the account agreement. Discounts are subject to change at any time and cannot be combined with any other offer or discount. Proceeds from advances made at closing cannot be used to pay off existing Amerant loan balances. The minimum line amount is $25,000. Certain eligibility requirements and restrictions apply for lines greater than $1,000,000.
