Let us help you live life, dream big, and achieve financial success.

Refinancing Your Mortgage?

Refinancing Your Mortgage?

If you’re planning to refinance, AmeriCU has two great options so you can choose which is right for you. A cash out refinance allows you to tap the equity in your home to consolidate debt, make home improvements, take a vacation, or pay for college. Rate and/or term refinance allows you to shorten your term to pay off your mortgage more quickly or at a lower rate.

Keep in mind, refinancing may not be the best option if you are planning to move within three to five years, as you will not recoup the associated costs. Instead, consider home equity loans and lines.

AmeriCU Mortgages

Home loans are not one-size-fits-all. With so many options, it can be difficult to know what to choose! Our Mortgage Executives can help you review your options and help you make the best choice for you. Contact a Mortgage Executive today! We offer a variety of mortgages including:

Conventional Fixed Rate Mortgage

A fixed rate means steady, predictable monthly payments for the term of the loan. An ideal choice if you’re planning to live in your new home for many years to come.

  • Down payments as low as 5%
  • Fixed rate for the term of the loan
  • 10 to 30 year terms available
  • Mortgage insurance is required with less than 20% down payment

Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM)

These mortgages offer lower initial interest rates and payments for a fixed period (1, 3, 5, 7, 10 or 15 years). After the initial period, the rate adjusts annually. A great choice if you’re not sure how long you plan to own your home and are comfortable with a payment that can change over time.

  • Down payment as low as 5%
  • Rate is fixed to start, then a variable rate adjusted annually after the initial period
  • Terms up to 30 years
  • Mortgage insurance is required with less than 20% down payment

FHA Fixed Rate Mortgage

Great for first time homebuyers and people with lower down payments or minor credit issues. A fixed rate means no surprises — you know what your payment will be for the life of the loan. With as little as a 3.5% down payment required, this loan type also has less strict credit requirements. Mortgage insurance is required and typically paid over the life of the loan.

  • Down payment as low as 3.5%
  • Fixed rate for the term of the loan
  • 10 to 30 year terms available
  • Mortgage insurance is required
