Lock Now, Save Later with Home Equity FirstLine Plus

Introductory rates that are too good to be true?
Introductory rates on equity lines may seem attractive in the short-term, but once the promotional period is over and variable rates kick in, it could end up costing you more in the long run.  As interest rates go up on a variable rate, the interest portion of the monthly payment will also increase.

One of the smartest decisions you’ll ever make.
While other home equity lines of credit offer unpredictable variable rates, First Hawaiian Bank offers a unique solution whereby you can lock in the rater on certain outstanding balances.  Our Home Equity FirstLine Plus provides you with the ability to lock your balances at low fixed rates while keeping your monthly interest and payments stable for the life of the loan.

“Historically, we have been the largest home equity lender and will continue to support the Hawaii market and bring unique and beneficial lending products.” says Derek Wong, vice president of retail product management at First Hawaiian Bank.

  • Flexibility.  It’s a line of credit and a loan.  With the Rate Lock Feature, you can convert all or a portion of your balance to a fixed loan, locking your rate and monthly payments.
