SLFCU’s 5/5 Adjustable Rate Mortgage1/18/2023

SLFCU offers 5/5 adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs) that provide the security of a rate and payment that adjusts once every five years. With rates lower than our 30-year fixed mortgages, SLFCU’s 5/5 adjustable rate mortgage is a great way to make homeownership a reality in the current market.

You can take advantage of a lower rate now and potentially refinance within the next five years if rates are lower, making this a great option for first-time homebuyers and those who may move or refinance within five to seven years.

SLFCU’s home loans also have:

  • No private mortgage insurance requirement.
  • Down payments as low as 3% for first-time homebuyers.
  • Rate caps for peace of mind - each adjustment is capped at 2%, and your rate will never increase more than 5% above your original rate.

Home loans with SLFCU are processed and serviced locally. When you have a question, you’ll always be able to talk to someone at the Credit Union. View current rates, loan calculators, and details about the home loan process, or apply online. Contact SLFCU’s Mortgage team at 505.237.7161 or 800.947.5328 x7161 to discuss your home loan options.
