You'll need 5% to 20% of the home's value for a minimum down payment. However, there are programs that you may qualify for that require less than 5% for a down payment. We'll be happy to let you know if you qualify!
You will also need cash to pay closing costs and loan fees. This usually amounts to 1 percent or less of the amount you will be financing. The closing costs and loan fees cover things like the application fee for a credit report and property appraisal, a closing or originators fee to cover costs (some times known as "points"), legal fees, recording fees and title insurance to help make sure your home purchase is legally correct. There are other fees for inspections and surveys. The initial homeowners insurance premium will also be included. You should have two months worth of mortgage payments on hand to cover any unexpected expenses. Don't think you'll have to remember all this! We'll provide you with a detailed estimate of these costs, along with a Truth-in-Lending statement that estimates the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) for your loan.
With the variety of programs for existing homes or new construction PYRAMAX BANK has to offer, one will be perfect for you.
This is the most affordable for many buyers. Monthly payments are low since your balance is stretched out over 30 years. Your principal and interest are the same every month, making it easier to budget.
Similar to the 30-year loan, but payments are stretched over 20 years.
This type of loan allows you to own your home sooner. It saves you about 60% of the interest you would pay on a 30-year loan, but payments are about 25% higher than on a 30-year loan.
An adjustable rate mortgage is just what the name implies. The rate is adjusted at specific intervals; such as 1-year, 3 years, or 5 years. A rate cap protects you if rates rise significantly.
In addition to these traditional mortgages, PYRAMAX BANK has an In-House program that can tailor your mortgage to better fit your needs. Contact a Loan Officer for more information!
Balloon loans are short term mortgages that have some features of a fixed rate mortgage. The loans provide a level payment feature during the term of the loan, but as opposed to the 30 year fixed rate mortgage, balloon loans do not fully amortize over the original term. At the end of the loan term there is still a remaining principal loan balance which generally requires that the loan be paid in full, which can be accomplished by refinancing or opting to use a conversion feature at the end of the term.
All of our Construction Loans feature:
APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is based on a $125,000 mortgage, 20% down payment, 360 monthly payments and is subject to increase after the initial lock period with an annual cap of 2% and a lifetime cap of 6% over the initial rate. Maximum loan amount is $417,000. Maximum Loan to Value of 95% on a single family residence, and 90% Loan to Value on a two family residence.
