- Mortgage Types
First-Time Home Buyer
This mortgage is designed to meet the needs of the first time home buyer. It has minimal out of pocket costs (prepaid items). This product has no origination fees, no closing costs, no private mortgage insurance (PMI), no down payment requirements and no prepayment penalties. It has a competitive rate and is available as a 30 year fixed rate or a 5/5 ARM. To qualify as a first-time home buyer, the applicant cannot have owned a home or had an ownership interest in a primary residence for the past three years.
Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs)
First Community offers 1, 3, 5 & 7 year ARM mortgages that provide a lower initial monthly payment and slowly adjust over time. The rate cannot adjust more than 2% at each adjustment and no more than 6% over the life of the loan. Jumbo loan amounts are available and only 10% down is required to avoid Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI).
Fixed Rate Mortgages
The fixed-rate mortgage provides the security of a fixed interest rate for the entire life of the loan. First Community offers 10, 15, 20 and 30-year fixed mortgages. We recommend this loan if you plan to stay in your home more than 10 years and want the security of mortgage payments that will not change.
First Community will finance the acquisition of land or refinance a land loan whether you intend to build a home or just invest. All vacant land loans are amortized over 15 years and 2, 3 or 5-year balloon land loans are available.
If you need to borrow at least $424,000 you are considered a 'Jumbo' mortgage. We have adjustable and fixed rates for our Jumbo mortgages. Not everyone offers Jumbo mortgages and our rates are always competitive.
