Lock In a Great Rate While Staying Flexible
Avoid potential rising interest rates. With the Fifth Third Equity Flexline® Fixed Rate Lock Option, you can enjoy the security of a fixed rate with the flexibilty of a variable rate line of credit.
How It Works
- Lock in a fixed rate on all or part of your Equity Flexline balance.
- Choose your payment amount and the number of monthly payments.*
- Pay a $95 fee to lock, and unlock at any time without paying a fee. Plus, you can have up to three locks at the same time.
- As you pay down the Fixed Rate Lock, the funds become available again on your line of credit.
- Your remaining balance and available credit stay at the same variable interest rate.
Fixed Rate Locks can be applied against your line of credit for expenses such as home repairs or remodels.

- How Much?
- Borrow what you can comfortably afford, not the amount you qualify for.
- Debt to Income Ratio
- Your monthly payments divided by your total income is your DTI. The lower your DTI, the more likely it is your loan will be approved.
- Credit Score & Interest Rate
- The higher your credit score, the lower your interest rate could be.
- Fixed vs. Variable Rate
- Fixed rate loan payments remain the same throughout the life of the loan. Variable rate loans are tied to a market index, so rates and payment amounts could vary over time.
