Fixed-Rate Mortgage

A fixed-rate mortgage loan is exactly that – fixed. It doesn't move. So your monthly payments will always stay the same over the term of the loan.

A good option for someone who expects to stay in the same house for a while or just wants a consistent payment. 

Choose fixed-rate terms from 10 to 30 years.

Don't wait until you find a house you love. Get a free preapproval.

Adjustable-Rate Mortgage

With an adjustable-rate loan, your interest rate can change over the course of your loan, after being locked-in for the initial term.

A good option for someone looking for a more affordable payment early on, expecting an increase in their income or planning to only stay in the house for a few years.

Choose ARM terms from 3 to 15 years. 

Wondering What Those ARM Numbers Mean?

The first number is how many years your initial rate is fixed. The second one reflects how often the rate adjusts after the initial term. 

Here are a couple of examples:

  • For a 7/1 ARM, you’d have a fixed rate for the first seven years. Then your rate and payment could change once a year after.
  • For a 15/15 ARM, you’d have a fixed rate for the first 15 years. Then your rate and payment could change but last another 15 years – the rest of the loan term!

Start With a Free Preapproval

It’s the best first step. Because when you get a preapproval on your loan, you have the green light to go up to a maximum purchase price – and you have extra credibility on your offer to purchase. You just need:

  1. A government-issued ID

  2. Your most recent 30 days of pay stubs and two years of W-2s

  3. Your statement or account numbers for all bank accounts and loan balances
