Fixed-Rate Mortgages

A fixed-rate mortgage features an interest rate that remains the same throughout the life of the loan, so your monthly principal and interest payment will be steady and predictable. If you can contribute a 20-percent down payment or more, you may be able to avoid the cost of private mortgage insurance.

  • Down payments as low as 5%
  • Amortization periods from 10 to 30 years
  • Fixed/level payment of principal and interest for the life of the loan; interest-only payments available in some situations
  • Balloon payment options not available
  • May require private mortgage insurance

Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs)

If you expect your income to increase or plan to own your home for a short while, an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) may be your best option. ARMs offer lower initial interest rates. After a specified period, the interest rate adjusts based on a preselected index plus a margin and is generally subject to periodic and life-of-loan interest rate caps and floors. We offer terms up to 30 years with the following as options:

  • Down payments as low as 3%
  • One-year ARM: Interest rate adjusts annually
  • 3/1 ARM: Interest rate is fixed for the first three years and then adjusts annually
  • 5/1 ARM: Interest rate is fixed for the first five years and then adjusts annually
  • 7/1 ARM: Interest rate is fixed for the first seven years and then adjusts annually
  • 10/1 ARM: Interest rate is fixed for the first ten years and then adjusts annually
  • Balloon payment options not available

Jumbo Loans

Jumbo mortgages are home loans that exceed conforming loan limits. A jumbo loan is one way to buy a high-priced or luxury home. Your interest rate will be fixed for the life of the loan, so you can plan a long-term budget.

  • Borrow more than local conforming loan limits ($417,000)
  • Fixed interest rate for the life of the loan
  • Down payments as low as 20%
  • Debt-to-income ratio of 45% or less required
