Our mortgage consultants have the expertise to assist first-time home buyers and move-up buyers analyze their short- and long-term goals to make the wisest financing decisions.
Below are the benefits of the various interest rate and monthly payment options that are available.
Fixed-Rate: The best choice for individuals who prefer the stability of a fixed interest rate and payment over the life of the loan. This predictability makes monthly budgeting easier. A longer term fixed-rate mortgage, typically 20 to 30 years, offers a lower monthly payment; whereas, a shorter term fixed-rate mortgage, from 10 to 15 years, offers a faster pay-off time.
Adjustable-Rate: The best choice for individuals who plan to move and/or expect their salary to rise within the next few years. An adjustable-rate mortgage does just that: rate and payment adjust based on an industry index plus margin. Some adjustable-rate mortgages offer longer fixed-rate periods of between three and seven years before the first adjustment to rate and payment occur.
Buydown: The best choice for individuals who prefer the stability of a fixed-rate, but need lower payments in the initial months of the loan term.

Refinance Your Loan
If you currently own your home, consider the various ways you can improve your financial position by refinancing.
Lower Your Rate: Refinancing often makes sense if you can lower your interest rate which yields a lower monthly mortgage payment.
Change to a Fixed Rate: If you currently have an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM), it may make sense to switch to a low, fixed-rate mortgage to make budgeting easier.
Renovate Your Home: If you have light-to-major renovations in mind for your home, it may make sense to get a renovation loan to pay for all your upgrades.
Obtain Cash: Use the equity in your home for minor home improvements, college tuition or investment opportunities.
Build Equity Faster: If you currently have a 30- or 40-year mortgage and you want to accelerate your equity growth, it may make sense to change to a 15-year mortgage.
