Features

With a fixed rate mortgage, your rate will stay the same throughout the term of the mortgage loan. The interest rate is fixed, which means your principal and interest payments will not change. However, if there is an increase or decrease in taxes or cost of hazard insurance, an increase or decrease in the total dollar amount of the payment will occur.

  • Fixed monthly principal and interest payment
  • Finance up to 97% or 100% through the First Time Home Buyer's Program* or ECU 100 Mortgage
  • 15-, 20- and 30-year fixed terms available
  • No prepayment penalty
  • Reduce your interest rate by paying discount points

*Certain restrictions apply.
Example: 30-year fixed rate loan of $150,000 with a 5% down payment, an annual interest rate of 5.000%, and an APR of 5.425%, would result in 360 monthly principal and interest payment of $805.23.  Payment does not include amounts for taxes and insurance premiums. The actual payment will be greater if taxes and insurance are included.

FAQs

  • What is a Fixed Rate Mortgage?A fixed rate mortgage is the most common type of home loan. The interest rate remains the same for the life of the loan, so the principal and interest remain the same, too. Your monthly payments do not change unless property taxes, insurance premiums, or homeowners or condo association fees change.
  • What does a 30-year term mean?The mortgage’s term is the number of years you have to pay it. Some lenders offer a 30-year term, 20-year term, or a 15-year term.
  • What are the advantages of selecting a 30-year term over a 15-year term?The advantage of having a 30-year term is that your monthly payments are going to be lower. However, you pay more total interest over the life of the loan than you would with a 15-year term and your interest rate is higher with a 30-year term.
  • Who should consider getting a Fixed Rate Mortgage?Homeowners who want a monthly payment that is not going to change but be the same each month. Also, someone who plans to live in their home for many years would benefit from a fixed rate mortgage.
