Get the home you want, from a lender you can trust.
When you're ready to find your dream home, a conventional loan offers the flexibility and competitive rates to get you into your new home fast. Lock into a fixed-rate mortgage over the life of the loan, and with a qualifying down payment you can avoid mortgage insurance fees.
An adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) has an interest rate that is fixed for a set number of years and then will go up or down based on the market. If you’re thinking of getting an ARM, consider how long you plan to stay in your home. If you plan to stay in your home for a long time, a fixed-rate ,conventional loan may be better for you. But, if you plan to sell your home before the rate becomes variable, consider an ARM because initial rates are typically lower.
