Rate types to consider

We can help you decide which rate & mortgage types will benefit you most, but here are some basics:  

Fixed rate
Because they have predictable payments with unchanging interest rates, fixed rate loans work well for those who anticipate being in the home for a long time.
  • Typically available in 15 and 30 year terms
  • The longer the term the smaller the monthly payment — but you’ll pay out more over the life of the loan, because of interest.
  • The shorter term loans have better interest rates, are paid off quicker & and cost less over time.

Adjustable rate

If you know you’ll be moving in 3 to 10 years, the new, improved adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) can be a good choice.  ARMs offer initially low interest rates, which helps keep your monthly payment low. Years later (you choose how many years) the rate adjusts up or down to whatever the current interest rate is.
