For added peace of mind, many homebuyers select a fixed-rate mortgage because its monthly payment of principal and interest never changes for the life of the loan.
At MAFCU, we offer fixed-rate loans in all shapes and sizes: 30-year, 25-year, 20-year, 15-year, even 10-year.
You might choose a fixed-rate loan if you want to lock in a low rate. If you have an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) now, refinancing with a fixed-rate loan can give you more monthly payment stability.
With an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM), you benefit from a lower introductory rate for a set period of time (5, 7, or 10 years), so you may be able to get more house for your money. While the rate adjusts based on one of several market indices–and may increase–an ARM may still be a good choice if you plan on moving within three to 10 years, refinancing, or believe your income will increase enough to afford a potentially higher rate after the introductory period.
All programs have a "cap" that protects you from your monthly payment going up too much at once. In addition, all ARM programs have a "lifetime cap"–your interest rate can never exceed that cap amount, no matter what.
Second mortgages are taken out at the same time as a first mortgage as a way of borrowing a higher percentage of the property cost/value without having to pay mortgage insurance. The first mortgage is typically limited to no more than 80 percent of property cost/value and therefore does not require mortgage insurance. The second mortgage would represent 5- to 15 percent of the property cost/value
