Types of Mortgages and Financing
At Northampton Cooperative Bank, we offer a number of different mortgage products, all at competitive rates. Stop in to any of our offices in Northampton, Florence or Amherst, to find out which one is right for you.
Adjustable rate mortgage (ARM)
An ARM usually features a lower rate than a fixed rate mortgage, but the rate is adjusted periodically so your payments may fluctuate. Is it the right loan for you? We can help you decide by calculating the maximum amount you'll have to pay. If you plan to move in a few years, or if you think interest rates will decline, you may want to consider an ARM. At Northampton Cooperative Bank, we offer 5-year ARMs that can be amortized up to 30 years.
Fixed rate mortgage
With a fixed rate mortgage, the rate - and your monthly payment - will stay the same for the life of the loan. The rate on a fixed rate mortgage is generally higher than an adjustable rate mortgage. We offer 10-year, 15-year, 20-year and 30-year fixed rate mortgage loans.
Planning to build your dream home? At Northampton Cooperative Bank, we offer 5-year adjustable rate construction loans, as well as fixed rate construction loans.
When to refinance
Thinking about refinancing? Stop in to talk to us. We'll be happy to review your existing mortgage, your financial situation and current interest rates, to help you decide if it's a good time for you to refinance.
