A fixed-rate loan is one of the most common types of home loans. Benefits include a consistent rate, predictable monthly principal and interest payments and a flexible down payment. If you meet the U.S. Bank credit score and debt-to-income ratio (the ratio of total monthly debt payments – not including utilities, cell phone or cable service – compared to gross monthly income) requirements, a conventional fixed-rate loan may be a good option for you.
A fixed-rate loan is a type of loan that comes with an interest rate that won't change for the life of the loan.

Monthly principal and interest payments on a conventional fixed-rate mortgage remain the same for the life of the loan, making it an attractive option for those who plan to stay in their home for several years. With an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) the interest rate may change periodically, based on a pre-determined index – for example, the U.S. Treasury – and margin set by the bank. The initial interest rate is fixed for a set period of five, seven or 10 years depending on the loan product, and then becomes variable. An increase or decrease depends on the market conditions at the time of the conversion to the variable rate and during the adjustment period thereafter. This may be a good option for those who plan on moving within a few years. Consider the benefits of each to determine which makes the most sense for your situation.
A jumbo loan is for single-family homes with loan amounts greater than $726,200. In certain high cost areas, such as Alaska and Hawaii, the loan amount must be greater than $1,089,300.

A VA jumbo loan is a Veterans Affairs (VA) loan that exceeds the conforming loan limit of $726,200 and up to $1,089,300 in high-cost areas such as Alaska and Hawaii. If you’re an active-duty service member, veteran or eligible surviving spouse, and you meet the income and credit requirements, a VA jumbo loan could be an option for you.
An adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is a home loan that has an initial fixed-rate period of five, seven or 10 years and an adjustable rate after the fixed-rate period ends. After the introductory rate term expires, the estimated payment and rate may change. An increase or decrease depends on the market conditions at the time of the conversion to the variable rate and during the adjustment period thereafter. An ARM loan could be a good option if you plan to sell within a few years.
With an (ARM) loan the initial interest rate is fixed for a set period and then becomes variable, adjusting periodically for the remaining life of the loan based on market conditions. For example, a jumbo 10/1 ARM has a fixed rate for the first 10 years and an adjustable rate for the remaining duration of the loan, adjusting every year. A 7/6 ARM has a fixed rate for the first seven years and an adjustable rate for the remainder of the loan, adjusting every six months. To learn more about how ARM loans work, connect with your mortgage loan officer.
