Fixed-rate mortgages can be ideal if you expect to own the property for many years. A fixed-rate mortgage holds the interest rate and monthly payment constant for the life of your loan so you always know exactly what your monthly payments will be.
If you do not plan on staying in your home for a long period of time or need flexibility to meet your current financial situation, you may want to consider an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM). With this option, you can take advantage of a fixed interest rate for a shorter period of time. After the initial period ends, the rate is adjusted every year, but will never exceed a pre-determined rate cap.
Jumbo mortgages are available for customers who want a higher loan amount (more than $417,000) at competitive rates. Jumbo financing options include fixed- and adjustable-rate mortgages, with a range of terms to accommodate immediate and long-term financial plans.
