Whats the difference between a fixed-rate and adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM), and which one should I choose?
The difference between a fixed rate and an adjustable rate mortgage is that, for fixed rates the interest rate is set when you take out the loan and will not change. With an adjustable rate mortgage, the interest rate may go up or down.
With our Conventional Fixed-Rate Mortgage you can select from 10, 15, 20 and 30-year terms with a fixed rate for the length of the loan. A down payment of at least 3% is required.
With our Adjustable-Rate Mortgage your home loan will be at a lower rate for the first 3 to 5 years. Adjustable-Rate Mortgages are perfect for short-term home ownership, large payments towards the loan in the first few years, or for members simply looking to save money with a lower fixed rate for the first 3 to 5 years. Select from 3-1 or 5-1 ARMs for 15- or 30-year terms.
