Traditionally a popular option, fixed-rate mortgages provide the security of a fixed monthly payment over the life of the loan. Cape Cod 5 offers a variety of terms that allow you to choose a repayment period that best meets your unique needs. The shorter the term, the less interest you’ll pay. Longer terms are also available for lower monthly payments.
Adjustable-Rate Mortgages (ARMs)
An adjustable-rate mortgage has a monthly payment that may change over the life of the loan. There will be a fixed rate and monthly payment amount for an agreed upon term and then the rate and payment will convert to adjustable for the remainder of the loan term. For example, a 5 year adjustable-rate mortgage will have a fixed rate and payment for the first 5 years of the loan and then may change each year based on market conditions and the specific terms of the loan. Benefits of this mortgage type include:
- Affordable monthly payments – typically lower than longer term fixed-rate mortgages
Higher purchasing power
- A good short-term solution when you aren’t planning to stay in the same home for long
A mortgage is classified as jumbo when the loan amount is greater than the conventional conforming loan limits set by the Federal Housing Finance Agency. Cape Cod 5 offers jumbo mortgages up to $2.5 million for both primary residences and second homes.
Cape Cod 5’s construction loan offers one-step financing for the construction of a new home, or rehabilitation of an existing home. Payments are interest only for the construction period and then convert to a standard fixed or adjustable rate mortgage.
Our one-step process saves you money and time. One application, one loan, and one closing!
A land loan allows you to finance the purchase of a buildable lot. Cape Cod 5 provides generous terms including:
- Adjustable rate loans
- The ability to use the equity in your land as part, or all, of the down payment on your construction loan when you are ready to build your new home.
