FAQs

We offer flexible terms ranging from 7 to 30 years for Fixed-Rate Mortgages. 
Contact Us to learn which might be best for you.
The difference between a Fixed-Rate Mortgage and an Adjustable-Rate Mortgage is that a fixed-rate mortgage has a fixed-interest rate for the life of the loan; whereas, an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) has an interest rate that varies. Sometimes an ARM will start at a lower interest rate than fixed rate mortgages and fluctuate depending on the PRIME rate.

Every circumstance is different and knowing what your short & long term goals are, will help you decide.  A 15-year mortgage minimizes your total borrowing costs and allows you to eliminate mortgage debt relatively quickly. But a 30-year loan has lower monthly payments, allowing you to save for other life goals and pay unexpected expenses.

If you’re looking to live in your home for the long haul, then a 30 year mortgage might be the best fit. Keep in mind with a 15-year mortgage, your monthly payments will be higher because you're squeezing all that principal into a shorter term.
