We offer loans to finance your home purchase with 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30-year maturities. You decide what works best for you. We offer two types of conventional mortgage loans: Fixed-Rate loans and Balloon loans.
30-Year Fixed-Rate Mortgage
This loan provides you with the luxury of a lower monthly payment. It is great for first-time homebuyers and borrowers who prefer to keep their expenses down. The balance can always be reduced by applying extra payments directly to the principal.
20-Year Fixed-Rate Mortgage
With a more aggressive payback schedule, the balance will be reduced more quickly than the 30-year mortgage, while the payment remains lower than the shorter term loans.
15-Year Fixed-Rate Mortgage
This loan is fully amortized over a 15-year period and features constant monthly payments. It offers all the advantages of the 30-year loan, plus a lower interest rate — and you'll own your home twice as fast. The disadvantage is that, with a 15-year loan, you commit to a higher monthly payment. Many borrowers opt for a 30-year maturity and voluntarily make larger payments that will pay off their loan in 15 years. This approach combines the benefit of a shorter term with the flexibility to adjust the payment, if needed, and may provide a better alternative to committing to a higher monthly payment for the entire loan term.
10-Year Fixed-Rate Mortgage
10-Year Fixed-Rate Mortgage products are also available. This loan is fully amortized over a 10-year period and features constant monthly payments. It offers all of the advantages of the 30-year loan, plus a lower interest rate — and you'll own your home sooner. The disadvantage is that, with a 10-year loan, you commit to a higher monthly payment. Many borrowers opt for a 30-year loan and voluntarily make larger payments that will pay off their loan in 10 years. This approach is often safer than committing to a higher monthly payment.
If you’re looking to lock into a competitive rate but for a shorter term (10-year fixed rate or 15-year fixed rate), a Balloon Loan will give you the flexibility you need. When it’s time to renew your loan, you’ll have the opportunity to lock in a fixed rate or renew your loan for another short term—possibly at a lower rate. Balloon loans offer the flexibility of locking in an interest rate for either 10 or 15 years. This is our specialty product, and can be amortized over a period of up to 30 years. Our balloon rates are typically lower than the 30-year fixed-rate FNMA loan rates that are sold on the secondary market, and involve a simpler process to qualify. We invite you to compare rates today and see if a balloon option might be right for you!
Below is an example of how a balloon loan might compare to a 30-year fixed-rate FNMA loan: (actual rates may vary)
Time for your dream home to materialize? With a short-term construction loan you’ll have the money you need whenever your contractor needs it throughout the entire process. We can also roll your short-term loan into a mortgage after your new home is completed.
