Unsure which mortgage program is right for you?
For many, owning a home in Broome, Chenango or Tioga County, NY, is a lifelong dream. But choosing the right mortgage is a major decision, which can be both confusing and overwhelming. Our GHS loan consultants are available at 800.732.4447 to help you better understand your options and decide which mortgage program works best for your budget today – and tomorrow:
Provided in 15-, 20- or 30-year terms, a fixed-rate mortgage features the security of a monthly payment that won’t change and is the most popular loan option available. By choosing a 30-year fixed rate mortgage, you’ll have the lowest monthly payment of all the fixed rate loans we offer. And like all GHS loan programs, there is no prepayment penalty. So you can make monthly extra payments to pay off your loan early without penalties or fees.
Adjustable-rate mortgages, or ARMs, differ from fixed-rate mortgages in that the interest rate and monthly payment increases or decreases as market interest rates fluctuate. This can be an ideal choice if you plan on living in your new home for a short time since interest rates during the initial periods are generally lower than fixed-rate mortgages. However, with time, your interest rate may increase up to a lifetime cap.
FHA mortgages are designed to provide low down payment financing and are insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). Borrowers must also pay for mortgage insurance that protects the lender from a loss should the borrower default. This insurance lets lenders offer FHA loans at attractive interest rates and more flexible qualification requirements. It’s a great option to consider if you’re trying to finance your new home with as little cash as possible or if your credit is less than perfect.
