What is the difference between a fixed-rate and adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM), and which one should I choose?
The difference between a fixed rate and an adjustable rate mortgage is that, for fixed rates the interest rate is set when you take out the loan and will not change. With an adjustable rate mortgage, the interest rate may go up or down.

With our Conventional Fixed-Rate Mortgage you can select from 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30-year terms with a fixed rate for the length of the loan. A down payment of at least 3% is required.

With our Adjustable-Rate Mortgage your home loan will be at a lower rate for the first 3 to 5 years. Adjustable-Rate Mortgages are perfect for short-term home ownership, large payments towards the loan in the first few years, or for members simply looking to save money with a lower fixed rate for the first 3 to 5 years. Select from 7-1, 5-1, 3-1, and 5-5 ARMs for a 30-year term. The monthly payments are based on a 30-year amortization, and can change throughout the life of the loan. After the initial term, the interest rate adjusts higher or lower based on the 1 year US Treasury market. The rate changes are limited to an increase or decrease of up to 2% at each annual adjustment, and subject to both a minimum rate (floor) and maximum rate (ceiling) over the life of the loan. Our Mortgage Loan Officers can help you identify which option may be best for you.

What are the down payment options?

Members will have closing cost expenses including the costs to originate the loan, the first year of homeowners insurance, prorated property taxes, prepaid interest, and initial escrow funding.

What fees will I have to pay when I close on my mortgage?

Included in the costs are the origination fee, credit report, flood determination, tax and insurance service, verification of employment, home inspection, appraisal, lender's title insurance, and settlement fees. Additionally, members will have expenses related to their first year of homeowners insurance, prorated property taxes, prepaid interest, and initial escrow funding. Members that need Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) or elect to escrow property tax and insurance will have prepaid costs related to initial funding of their escrow account. The costs will vary depending on the property value and be based on the actual costs associated with your home purchase. The closing costs will vary based upon your mortgage type and the amount financed.
