Choosing a Home Loan

Understand your complete and current financial picture to determine the best loan program for you. Review the following:

  • Anticipated changes in finances
  • How long you intend to keep your house
  • How comfortable you are with your mortgage payment changing

We can help you find the loan program to best align with your finances, life goals and your future plans.

Benefits of a Pre-Approval

Getting pre‐approved to buy a home is one of the most important steps.

Fixed-Rate Mortgage*

With a fixed-rate mortgage, your monthly principal and interest payments remain the same throughout the life of the loan. Most common fixed-rate home loan terms range from 10 to 30 years.

If you plan to stay in your home several years, a fixed-rate mortgage may be right for you.

Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM)*

Adjustable-rate mortgages generally have monthly principal and interest payments that change after a set period of time, based on an external financial index. ARMs can offer a variety of features, such as a lower initial interest rate, periodic and lifetime caps on the interest rate and conversion options after construction completion. 

If you plan on relocating or trading up in a few years, you may want to take advantage of an adjustable-rate mortgage.

Jumbo Loans*

A jumbo loan is an option if you're looking to finance a home for more than $766,550. A jumbo loan exceeds the conforming loan limits and the maximum loan amount allowed by most mortgage investors. Jumbo loans potentially have some additional underwriting and property requirements.

If your situation provides you a low debt‐to‐income (DTI) ratio, an excellent credit score and a larger down payment, then a jumbo loan may be perfect for you.

Condo Loans

Financing a condominium is different from a typical home mortgage. Our mortgage loan officers are experienced in the condo market and can help you determine if condo living is right for you.

They are knowledgeable in the financing available for a particular building, how many units are owner-occupied or rentals, what's included in the project, association budgets and insurance, and whether the property is eligible for financing.

Whether you're fresh out of residency or close to retirement, we help you navigate your home loan options.
