Get More House for Your Money with SLFCU’s New 7/1 Adjustable Rate Mortgage

Apply Now     Estimate Your Payments


Looking for a home loan with flexibility and affordability that doesn’t compromise on stability? SLFCU's new 7/1 Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) might be right for you.

With our 7/1 ARM, you’ll get the stability of a seven-year fixed interest rate and a 30-year term with no points. After the initial seven-year period, the rate will adjust once a year according to market conditions.

Here’s the best part: The 7/1 ARM offers a lower qualifying rate than other loan types. This means you could qualify for a bigger loan amount– and that means more purchasing power!

SEVEN REASONS TO CONSIDER SLFCU’S 7/1 ARM

  1. No budget surprises. Because it kicks off with a fixed interest rate for the first seven years, the 7/1 ARM ensures budget predictability during the initial stages of your mortgage journey.
  2. Potentially lower monthly payments. With the 7/1 ARM, you may have lower monthly payments compared to traditional fixed rate mortgages, making homeownership more accessible and manageable.
  3. Down payments as low as 3%. Just like with our popular 5/5 and 15/15 ARMs, if you’re a first-time home buyer, you can make a down payment as low as 3%. Or, if you’ve previously purchased a home, you can still qualify for a down payment as low as 5% of the purchase price!
  4. Rate caps for peace of mind. Your rate cannot increase or decrease by more than 3.5% at the first adjustment, or by more than 2% at each annual adjustment after that.
  5. Low closing costs. SLFCU’s mortgages offer low closing costs (on jumbo loans, too!)
  6. No PMI. SLFCU has no private mortgage insurance (PMI) requirement, which could potentially save you thousands of dollars over the life of your loan.
  7. More buying power. It’s worth repeating! You could qualify for a bigger loan amount with the 7/1 ARM.

IS THE 7/1 ARM RIGHT FOR YOU?

The 7/1 ARM could be a great fit if you plan to stay in your new home for seven years or fewer, if you want to refinance to a fixed rate mortgage after seven years, and/or if you expect interest rates to fall over time.

While the 7/1 ARM offers significant advantages, it's crucial to consider your homeownership goals and timeline. If you’re looking for a forever home and/or if you don’t want interest rate adjustments after the initial seven-year fixed rate period is over, you can explore SLFCU’s other home loan options to find one that is right for you.
