Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM)

This type of loan offers interest rates that fluctuate, or vary, with current market conditions throughout the loan’s lifetime.

  • Variable interest rate
  • Rate may be lower initially than fixed-rate mortgages
  • Choose an initial adjustment period of 5, 7 or 10 years
  • Down payment could be as low as 10%

An adjustable-rate mortgage can be your best avenue for optimal savings. It depends on the current interest rate, your home’s total cost and how you feel about a rate that will change. 

If you don’t plan to stay in your home for a long time, you’ll want to consider an adjustable rate loan when rates will be lower in the beginning.

Construction to Permanent Loans

Save on mortgage costs by only paying the interest until your construction period is complete.

  • Borrow up to 95% of either the appraised value of the property with Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) or the cost of the construction, whichever is lower
  • Available as a fixed or adjustable rate loan
  • No prepayment penalty
  • Up to five draws are available to help you finance your construction costs throughout the process

If you’re looking to build your new home, our Construction to Permanent Loans help you save on mortgage costs. While your home is in construction, you pay only the interest on your mortgage until your construction period is complete.

Then your mortgage converts to a fixed or adjustable rate loan. It’s never been easier to finance a home from building it to living in it.

Refinance Loan

Looking to refinance your current home mortgage? Refinancing options are available.

  • Available with 10- or 15-year terms 
  • Low closing cost options available
  • Choose a rate and term refinance or a cash-out refinance, even if your current mortgage is with another bank

When you refinance your home, you replace your current mortgage with a new, more favorable one. There are many reasons why refinancing your mortgage could be a good idea, like taking advantage of lower interest rates. You can also leverage your financial position if it’s greatly improved since you were approved for your initial mortgage. 

If you have equity in your home, you may be able to take out a new mortgage for more than what you owe, so you can use the extra cash for other expenses. Refinancing could also eliminate your private mortgage insurance (PMI) payments. 

Other reasons are to avoid a balloon payment or refinance an adjustable-rate mortgage to a fixed term.
