WHICH LOAN IS RIGHT FOR ME?

Fixed Rate and Adjustable Rate Mortgages are the two most common mortgage options available to home buyers. While you may want to start house hunting right away, it is also important to determine the type of loan that suits your needs. 

Fixed rate mortgages charge a set rate of interest for the entire lifespan of the loan. While the principal and interest paid may vary each month, the total payments made does not. Not only does this make budgeting easy for homeowners, but the borrower is also protected from significant increase in mortgage payments if interest rates rise. The total amount of interest you will pay, depends on the length of the mortgage. The most common fixed rate mortgage terms are 30, 20 and 15 years. 

Adjustable rate mortgages (or ARM) have a variable interest rate, meaning that they will change over time. The initial interest rate is set below the market and will rise as time goes on. An adjustable rate mortgage has a set period of time during which the initial rate is constant and then will adjust according to a pre-arranged frequency. This type of mortgage allows the borrower to qualify for a larger loan and benefit from lower interest rates and payments without needing to refinance. 

When deciding which mortgage options are the best fit for you, factors such as how large of a mortgage payment you can afford, length of time you intend to live in the property and current interest rates are among the factors to be considered.

Minimum loan amount is $50,000 and all loans subject to credit approval.
