Want to lower your monthly payment AND increase your home’s equity? Then, we’ve got a solution for you. Unlike other mortgage loans, the Equity Builder Mortgage is an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) product designed to offer an affordable monthly payment, while also offering numerous benefits over traditional mortgage loans. The rate can adjust and does so according to the term of the loan (e.g. a 1/1 ARM has a fixed rate for one year then can increase or decrease each year thereafter). What’s great about the Equity Builder is that when we adjust the interest rate, we do it based on an internal index (our Cost of Funds*) that is not subject to the changes in the short term-interest rates that normally affect the mortgage industry.
