1:APR = Annual Percentage Rate. All mortgage APRs are for 1-4 unit owner occupied primary residences based on 20% down payment. APRs may vary with lesser down payment. All mortgages with a loan to value of 80% and over require Prime Mortgage Insurance (PMI). Rates subject to change without prior notice. Zero points on all mortgages. Guidelines available upon request.
2:EMP = Estimated Monthly Payment.
3:Land loans 1-10 years, 25% downpayment
4:ARM loans are variable rate loans, interest rates and payments may increase after consummation. Rates and payments will remain the same for the first 5, 7, or 10 years and then can adjust to a new rate and payment every 1, 3 or 5 years based on a current index, depending on the ARM program you choose. For example, if you select the 5 & 1 Fixed Variable program your rate and principal & interest payment will be fixed for the first 5 years (the 5 in 5& 1), after that the interest rate and payment could change every 1 year for the remainder of the mortgage’s term (the 1 in the 5 & 1).
