We're here to help with your mortgage lending needs every step of the way. Add it up and it's clear. There is no comparison to our philosophy—people helping people.
A fixed-rate loan amortized over 30, 20, 15 or 10 years. Payments remain fixed through out the life of the loan. Designed for those who desire a fixed payment over the entire term of the loan.
If you are looking for an initially lower payment, an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) might be for you. This is an adjustable-rate loan in which payments remain fixed for the first 3 or 7 years of the loan, then adjust annually for the remainder of the loan based on the loan's index.
NEW! We now have a 5/5 ARM - a product that combines some of the stability of a fixed-rate loan with the low initial payments of an ARM. Amortized over 30 years, the interest rate will remain in place for five years, adjust, remain in place for five more years, adjust, and so on - instead of adjusting every 12 months like a traditional ARM.
To see if any of these options are a good fit for your needs, call one of our mortgage specialists (see our team below) today.
