Mortgage Loan Types

There are many variations of these mortgage loan programs and numerous loan options that we offer.  We will be happy to fully explain all of your loan options.

Fixed Rates - Fixed rate mortgages have level, constant payments of principal and interest because the interest cannot change.  It is fixed.  The most common terms for fixed rate loans are 15 and 30 years, but loans can be amortized over 10, 20, or 25 years.   These are the safest, most secure loan programs.  The level monthly payment makes fixed rate loans attractive to those staying in properties over 8 - 10 years.

Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs) - These loans have a fixed period during which time the payments are fixed and level.  For example, a 3/1 ARM is fixed for the first three years, then becomes a 1 Yr. adjustable rate from years 4 - 30, adjusting every year to a new rate, subject to annual and lifetime caps on increases and decreases.  The adjustment each year after the initial fixed rate period is determined by this formula; Rate = Index plus Margin.  The most common index is the US 1 Year Treasury Constant Maturity.  The margin is determined by the lender, usually between 2.75% and 3.00%.  Rate adjustment caps generally apply to limit increases in rate per adjustment and over the life of the loan. ARMs are for the more sophisticated borrower who knows the length of time in the property is limited or knows that a refinance opportunity will occur during the initial fixed rate period of the ARM.

Piggyback 1st and 2nd Mortgages  -  A combination loan of a 75% or 80% 1st mortgage and a 15% or 10% 2nd mortgage can help savvy borrowers escape paying Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) with as little as 5% or 10% down.  Normally, a down payment of at least 20% is required to avoid paying PMI.  These loans are typically known as 80/10/10's or 75/15/5's.  These combination loans can be done on fixed rates and most adjustable rate programs.  In some cases, an 80/15/5 can be done allowing the qualified borrower to put down only 5%, while still avoiding PMI.
