Adjustable Rate Mortgage Loans
The interest rate and closing costs are generally lower for a home loan, and the interest rate can be fixed for up to five years. The Portfolio ARM products are a viable alternative to the traditional fixed-rate loans for borrowers who have limited cash for down payments, or for those who prefer a lower monthly payment.
Traditional Fixed-Rate Loans
These loans are available for people who desire the stability of a fixed-rate monthly payment for the entire term of their loan. Fixed-rate loans generally have a higher interest rate and a higher monthly payment than Portfolio ARM loans and are available for up to 30 years.
This loan allows a person to pay interest-only on the loan during the construction phase, then converts to a permanent loan upon completion of the home. The interest rate remains the same throughout the entire loan and closing costs are paid only once.
Portfolio Land Loans
This loan program allows you to buy a building lot or unimproved acreage now, then finance your construction later when you are ready to build.
Investment Property Loans
This program is designed to allow you to buy residential property for the purpose of rental income.
Mortgage Rehab Loan
This program is designed to allow you to buy a home or refinance your current one and make capital improvements at the same time, all in the same loan. You no longer have to get one loan to buy a home and then another to upgrade it. Consolidate both into one Mortgage Rehab loan and have one low payment.

For example, based on a $100,000 loan amount at an interest rate of 3.20% (3.489% APR) for a 3/3 Adjustable Rate Loan for 30 years, the monthly principal and interest payment will be $432.47 for the first 36 months with a corresponding simple interest rate of 3.20%, the next 323 months the payment will be $450.98 with a corresponding simple interest rate of 3.565%, and the remaining 1 month payment will be $451.72 with a corresponding simple interest rate of 3.565%. The payments do not include taxes and insurance premiums and the actual payment obligation will be greater. The interest rate is variable and may increase or decrease at the end of the 3-year fixed rate period. Your interest rate may be adjusted every three years thereafter and will be based on an index plus a margin. The index is the three-year weekly Treasury Constant Maturity. At the end of the three years the rate will change based on the index, which currently is .69% plus the margin of 2.875%. Interest rate is accurate as of 03/10/2014. Limited time offer.
