As the most popular mortgage program for homebuyers, a fixed rate mortgage offers the stability of predictable monthly payments for the life of the loan. With a fixed rate mortgage, payments will remain constant. Down payment of 5% required.

 

With a typically lower mortgage payment, Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM) are an increasingly popular alternative to the conventional fixed rate mortgage. The lower payments allow the homeowner to get the most home for their money. There is a potential increase in the monthly payment over time, if interest rates rise. ARMs are most appropriate for people who anticipate an increase in their income over the years or do not plan to stay in their home for a long period of time.

 

10/1 Arm
The 10/1 mortgage offers a fixed rate for the first ten (10) years of the loan. Beginning with the tenth anniversary date of the loan payments, your interest rate and payment will change yearly. Down payment of 5% required.

Fixed Plus 5/1 Mortgage
The Fixed Plus 5/1 mortgage offers a fixed rate for the first five (5) years of the loan. Beginning with the fifth anniversary date of the loan payment, your interest rate and payment will change yearly. Down payment of 5% required.

Fixed Plus 7/1 Mortgage
The Fixed Plus 7/1 mortgage offers a fixed rate for the first seven (7) years of the loan. Beginning with the seventh anniversary date of the loan payment, your interest rate and payment will change yearly. Down payment of 5% required.

3 Year Arm
The 3 Year Adjustable Rate Mortgage offers the initial rate of interest for a period of thirty six (36) months with interest rate and payments adjustments every thirty six (36) months. Down payment of 5% required.

If you’re interested in building a new home or doing a major renovation to your existing home, Ocean City Home Bank offers Construction to Permanent Mortgages. These mortgages offer interest-only payments during the construction term, allowing you to devote your time and resources to the building process.
