Fixed Rate Mortgages

Fixed rate loans feature an interest rate that remains unchanged for the life of your loan. They are ideal if you prefer a consistent mortgage payment or if you are on a fixed income. Fixed rate loans are a popular choice for new home purchases, refinancing an existing home and consolidating bills into one, consistent monthly payment.

Mortgage Rates



Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs)

Adjustable rate mortgages feature an interest rate that is lower than fixed rates for a period of time and then may change annually based on a specified index rate. ARMs are an attractive option if you expect a rapid increase in your income in the next few years and wish to maximize your purchasing power now. A wide range of ARMs are available:

You may choose any of the following:
1 year ARM The rates* on this loan may change every year.
3/1 ARM This loan has a fixed rates* for the first 3 years and then may change every year thereafter. This loan is attractive to those borrowers who want a lower rate than the fixed rates offer or who believe that interest rates may drop over the next 3 years.
5/1 ARM This loan has a fixed rates* for the first 5 years and then may change every year thereafter.
7/1 ARM This loan has a fixed rates* for the first 7 years and then may change every year thereafter.
10/1 ARM This loan has a fixed rates* for the first 10 years and then may change every year thereafter.

*In these programs, the initial interest rate is fixed for a period of time and then the interest rate may change annually (increase or decrease) in line with movements in the index rate specified in the corresponding note. Generally, interest rate increases result in higher monthly payments.

Reverse Mortgages

If you're a homeowner age 62 or older, a reverse mortgage could be right for you. Use the cash to supplement your retirement income, finance home renovations, or pay for long-term health care coverage.

A reverse mortgage is a loan that allows senior homeowners to convert home equity into cash while living at home for as long as they want to. You can receive payments as a lump sum, line of credit, or monthly payment for a specific term or for life. Funds are tax-free monthly payment for a specific term or for life and can be used for any purpose. Borrowers continue to own their own home. There is no monthly mortgage payment, income or credit qualifications, and the loan does not becomes due until the (last) borrower moves out, dies or sells the home.
