Colonial First Mortgage is a mortgage brokerage business that partners with wholesale lenders and other financial institutions. This is all to bring our clients the most available loan options in the industry. Here are some of the programs we have available.
It’s important to decide what type of loan and which term is right for you. With so many programs available; you should carefully consider your options. Whether it’s a conventional loan, interest only, jumbo, or FHA program; the loan you choose should fit your budget, comfort level, and life style.
Fixed Rate Loans (FRM): Fixed rate loan programs offer a set rate for the term of your loan. They also provide the confidence of a one monthly payment and easy budgeting.
Adjustable Rate Loans (ARM): ARM’s offer a low introductory rate for a period of time – usually 2,3,5,7, or 10 years. After this fixed period; the rate will reflect market conditions. This provides the flexibility of a much lower introductory payment and can allow you to ease into larger payments over time. ARM rates are usually much lower than fixed rates depending on market conditions.
Term defines the length of time you’ll be making monthly payments in order to repay your mortgage. We offer our residential loans in 10, 15, 20, or 30 year terms. Longer terms allow you to spread out the repayment of your loan and therefore reduce your monthly payments. Shorter terms payoff your loan sooner; but require larger payments each month.
You should consider that longer term loans equal more interest paid over time. While shorter terms reduce the total amount of interest over time. Shorter terms can also offer reduced interest rates. However, with today’s record lows; its still possible to obtain great interest rates regardless of the term you choose.
Interest First Loans: Interest First provides the option of only having to make the interest portion of your monthly payments. This can be for both fixed and adjustable rate platforms. Interest first loans offer convenience or can help you deal with unexpected expenses during a single month.
