American dream in progress.
With the large number of mortgage options available today, we make the dream of owning a home simple. Should you go with adjustable or fixed rate? Which term would best fit your needs? Let us help you find the mortgage solution that fits you as well as your new home.
Fixed Rate Mortgages
With a fixed rate mortgage, your monthly principal and interest payment will remain the same over the life of the loan. We offer a number of fixed rate programs for purchase and refinance transactions with a variety of terms including Conventional Mortgages, Government Loan Programs, and Jumbo Mortgage Programs for higher balance loans.
Adjustable Rate Mortgages
With an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (or ARM), your interest rate is established for a specific period of time and then may adjust based on changes in an index. The change in the rate will result in a change in your monthly principal and interest payment. ARMs typically have a rate that starts below fixed rate mortgages. Similar to fixed rate loans, these products are available for purchase or refinance transactions and feature a variety of term options. These are available for conventional and jumbo loan amounts.
FHA (Federal Housing Administration) Mortgage
FHA fixed rate mortgages are available with various terms. FHA products feature lower down payment options and flexible credit guidlines.
