What types of mortgages are there?

Fixed Rate Mortgage

Looking to have your payment stay the same for the entire loan term? A fixed rate mortgage is your best bet. With a fixed rate conventional loan, you'll have peace of mind knowing your monthly principal and interest payments will remain exactly the same, for the life of the loan. Fixed-rate loans are available in 10, 15, 20, and 30 year terms, with options to eliminate mortgage insurance.

Adjustable Rate Mortgage

An Adjustable Rate Mortgage, sometimes referred to as an ARM, has a lower rate and lower monthly payments for the first 5 or 7 years, depending on the term you choose. But after an initial period, your rate and payment may change, based on interest rates at the time.

Jumbo Mortgage

If you need a home loan over $484,350, then consider a Jumbo loan. A Jumbo loan offers low rates and a choice between fixed and adjustable rates.

FHA Mortgage

Are you a first-time homebuyer or worried you don't have enough money for closing costs or a down payment? A Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loan could be right for you. With an FHA loan, your down payment could be as little as 3.5%, and you can apply with less-than-perfect credit history. FHA was developed to provide homebuyers an alternative to conventional financing.

VA Mortgage

If you’re an active military member or a military veteran, a VA mortgage is a smart choice. Veterans Affairs (VA) loans have helped millions of veterans and their families become homeowners. All VA loans are guaranteed by the federal government and offer borrowers no down payment, no mortgage insurance, and relaxed credit standards with competitive rates.

* APR means Annual Percentage Rate. Your final APR may vary based upon customary fees and closing costs which are included in your final APR. Rates and terms are subject to change without prior notice; other restrictions may apply. EECU home loan programs are only available in Texas.

1Loans subject to credit approval, EECU's lending policies, and property approval. Rates subject to change without notice. The rate you may receive will depend on your individual circumstances, including your credit history, loan amount, down payment and EECU's lending policies. For example, a typical 30-year conforming $225,000 loan with a fixed rate of 4.50% (4.556% APR) would have 360 monthly principal and interest payments of $1,140.04 and a typical 15-year fixed conforming $180,000 loan with a fixed rate of 4.00% (4.123% APR) would have 180 monthly principal and interest payments of $1,331.00. The payment example does not include amounts for taxes and insurance premiums. If applicable, the actual payment obligation will be greater. Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) may be required for loans with less than a 20% down payment. Other rates and terms available.

2Mortgage rates assume borrower has excellent credit (including a credit score of 750 or higher). Estimated monthly payments shown include principal and interest only. ARM interest rates and payments are subject to increase after the initial fixed-rate period (5 years for a 5/1 ARM, 7 years for a 7/1 ARM and 10 years for a 10/1 ARM).

The Sailsbury Family

We had been saving for years to buy our first home, but when we found the house we had always wanted, we thought we couldn’t afford it. I called EECU and was told that we qualified for their new 100% Financing Program. Now it is our home! Thank you to all of the EECU team that helped our dreams come to fruition!
