Construction Loans
Construction Loans are offered to builders and consumers who want to build residences that will be owner occupied. Due to the differing circumstances associated with these loans they are almost always customized to the needs of the homeowner. It isn't uncommon for a construction loan to encompass both the new home and the homeowners current residence under one loan thereby reducing the need for the borrower to sell his home before beginning the new one. Interest rates on construction loans are tied to Wall Street Journal Prime Rate and depend on the equity and time it will take to build the house. Payments on these loan types are typically interest only and due monthly. These loans require that the homeowner contract with a licensed builder to construct the house.

Purchase Money Mortgages
Purchase Money Mortgages, this type loan is used for the purchase of a home in which the homeowner will reside. This type mortgage has a variety of repayment terms from one year to 30 years. Mortgage loan interest rates are a function of the term of the loan and the frequency with which the lender can change the rate. Hence the shorter the term of the loan or rate commitment the lower the initial interest rate. Please contact our Mortgage Department to obtain the most current rates.

Mortgage Refinancing
Mortgage Refinancing, to reduce the interest rate or borrow additional money for any worthwhile purpose consumers can refinance their home mortgages. Over the past several years, refinancing of fixed rate mortgage loans has been a way for the consumer to reduce his housing cost and save considerable amounts of money. Interest rates on all mortgage loans, whether refinancing or purchase money loans are the same.
