Interest rates vary by loan offer options to fit your needs.
As its name implies, a fixed rate mortgage is one where the interest rate on your home loan remains the same throughout its duration. This differs from a loan where the interest rate may change over time, such as an adjustable rate mortgage. Fixed rate mortgages are the most popular form of home loan in the United States largely due to the appeal of a consistent principal and interest mortgage payment amount over the life of the loan.
In many instances, fixed rate mortgages have higher mortgage payments than adjustable rate mortgages. This is most often because the interest rate remains unchanged for the duration of the loan. Typically, loans with longer terms will have a higher interest rate than loans with shorter terms due to interest rate risk, or the possibility of fluctuating interest rates.
The biggest potential advantages of a fixed rate mortgage is the fact that the interest rate does not change over time. This allows you to budget your finances and make a consistent, fixed principal and interest payment over the duration of your loan.
Fixed rate mortgages allow you to lock in an interest rate and principal payment for the entire life of your loan. Your rate and principal payment never increase, even if the market changes – giving you peace of mind.
Other potential advantages include:
Competitive interest rates.
Locked interest rate for the life of your loan.

An adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) is a mortgage in which the interest rate may change over time. With an adjustable rate mortgage, the interest rate may change periodically, usually in relation to an index (such as the Secured Overnight Finance Rate, or SOFR), and payments may “adjust” up or down accordingly. Unlike a fixed rate mortgage, homeowners with this type of home loan aren’t guaranteed the same interest rate for the duration of their loan. The risk of an increasing interest rate is something that borrowers should take into account when considering an adjustable rate mortgage for their home financing.
Because the borrower assumes more risk with this type of mortgage, adjustable rate mortgages offer prospective homeowners some notable advantages. Adjustable rate mortgages typically offer lower initial interest rates and monthly payments than fixed rate mortgages in exchange for possible future rate adjustments. With an adjustable rate mortgage, the initial interest rate is fixed for a set period, such as 3 to 10 years, and the interest rate adjusts up or down depending on market conditions after that. Adjustable rate mortgages can be a great option for homebuyers who plan to relocate or move in the future or who expect their income to increase.
Adjustable rate mortgage advantages include:
Depending on the type of mortgage selected, interest rate caps offer some protection for homeowners who opt to finance their home with an adjustable rate mortgage. An interest rate cap sets a limit on the amount the interest rate can increase. There are two types of interest rate caps. A periodic adjustment cap limits the amount an interest rate can increase or decrease between two adjustment periods after the first adjustment. A lifetime cap limits the amount the interest rate can increase over the duration of the loan.
Payment caps follow a similar structure as interest rate caps. Payment caps limit the amount the monthly payment may increase from one adjustment period to another, instead of the amount the interest rate can increase

The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) is a government entity that offers mortgage insurance on loans made by FHA-approved lenders. The FHA provides insurance on mortgages for many different types of homes including single-family and multifamily homes.
FHA loans are insured by the Federal Housing Administration. These loans are designed to help first-time homebuyers and experienced homeowners alike by providing them with a low down payment option. FHA mortgage insurance serves as protection for lenders in the event of a homeowner defaulting on their home loan.
FHA insured loans often give potential homeowners the option of making a lower down payment than they would need to make if using a traditional, non-FHA insured mortgage. FHA loan potential advantages include:
Low 3.5% down payment
100% gift funds – the entire 3.5% down payment can be a gift from parents, relatives or an employer.
FHA allows seller to give up to 6% of the home’s purchase price to an FHA buyer to pay for closing costs and pre-paid costs.
Flexible credit qualifying – because it is government-backed, it’s possible to qualify for an FHA loan with a lower credit score than on conventional loan programs
Upfront mortgage insurance may be financed or paid in cash.
May also be an option for borrowers with limited equity looking to refinance.
Ability to choose from a fixed-rate or adjustable rate
FHA loans aren’t just helpful to the potential homeowner – they also are helpful for the economy as a whole. They stimulate economic development in the form of expanding tax bases and creating jobs.
In fact, the FHA was created in 1934 as a direct response to difficulties in the housing industry such as unfavorable mortgage loan terms, low rates of homeownership nationwide and widespread unemployment among construction workers.
Now is the time to enjoy many advantages FHA loans offer potential homeowners. Plus, it’s now easier than ever to qualify! Our Mortgage Loan Originators will guide you through the FHA loan process with expert knowledge, competitive rates, and first-class service. Get started today!

Refinancing occurs when a homeowner gets a new mortgage loan to replace their current one on a given property. Most people refinance to lower their interest rate and reduce their mortgage payments, often saving considerable sums over the life of the loan. Though that isn’t the only reason homeowner’s refinance. Some may switch to a shorter duration mortgage (from a 30 year to a 15 year for example) to pay off their house earlier or they could refinance to cash out some of the equity that has built up in the house.
