CONVENTIONAL - Thirty, Twenty Five, Twenty,  Fifteen or Ten Year Fixed Rate Mortgages

The traditional fixed-rate mortgages have a constant interest rate and monthly payments that never  change. Thirty years may be a good choice if you plan to stay in your home for seven years or longer. Other terms are an option for planning your retirement or just findng a lower rate. First time homebuyers with a credit score of 680 or better can put as little as 3% down!  No upfront funding fees compared to FHA.

Hybrid ARM-Adjustable Rate Mortgate  (3/1 ARM, 5/1 ARM)

These can offer the best of both worlds: lower interest rates and a fixed principle and interest payment for a longer period of time than most adjustable rate loans. For example, a "5/1"  has a fixed rate and payment for the first five years and then turns into a traditional adjustable-rate loan, based on an Index and a margin and rate caps. The payment changes during the remaining 25 yr loan term. It's a good  choice for people who expect to move (or refinance) before or shortly after the adjustment occurs.
