Affordable Mortgage Payments *

Find the right loan for you with our full range of mortgage loan options.

A general rule: The longer term you select, the higher the interest rate will be but your monthly payment will be lower.

You will pay more in interest over the life of a 30-year term vs. a 15-year term.
However, you can pay your mortgage off at any time with no pre-payment penalties.

low to moderate incomes to purchase a home.

Adjustable Rate Mortgage Loan

An Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) loan offers a lower initial rate than a traditional fixed-rate loan.
An ARM starts at a fixed rate for five, seven, or 10 years. After that period, the rate may fluctuate each year.

ARM loans are a great way to save interest if you do not plan to live in a home for a long time.


Rate Re-lock guarantee

Control your payment by re-locking your rate to the current rate.
The newly re-locked rate will be applied to the remaining term and principal balance of your existing SPIRE ARM.
No application, credit check, or appraisal needed! Fee applies.
