Here are brief descriptions of the different loan types we offer:
Traditional Fixed Rate Mortgages
With a fixed rate mortgage, the interest rate stays the same for the lifetime of the loan. Your monthly payment (for principal and interest) stays the same for the term of the loan. Greentree offers many fixed rate mortgages with terms to fit your budget.
Adjustable Rate Mortgages
An adjustable rate mortgage (or ARM) usually starts with an initial interest rate lower than traditional fixed rate loans. After an initial payment period, the interest rate is subject to review and can move up or down based on the movement of a specified “index.” From then on, the rate is reviewed periodically. As the rate changes, so does your monthly payment. Greentree has a variety of adjustable rate mortgages.
Balloon Mortgage Loans
A “balloon” mortgage has regular payments of principal and interest that do not fully pay off the loan before its due date. Therefore, it has a balance at the end of the loan term — sometimes almost as much as the original loan amount. This balance can be paid in full, or refinanced at a new rate. Balloon loans tend to have lower rates than comparable fixed rate mortgages. They may be attractive if you need a lower initial monthly payment or plan to move before the loan “balloons.”
Cash-back from your Greentree loan is a popular request from our customers. We recognize that today’s families have many needs which can cause you to require additional cash–right now! Your Greentree loan officer can advise you about cash-back options.
