How to Apply
1 The index for the Prime-Based loan is the Wells Fargo Prime Rate. The interest rate for the loan will be adjusted with each change in the Wells Fargo Prime Rate. The payment will be fixed for 12 months and adjust only once per year on the anniversary of the loan. Any over or under payment of accrued interest resulting from a rate change, will be applied to the borrower’s balance. The reamortized payment will be calculated annually, using the remaining term, current balance and Wells Fargo Prime Rate then in effect. Restrictions may apply. Some properties may require an environmental loan insurance policy. Only loans/lines in 1st position are eligible. Policy costs range from $800-$1,200. This is a one-time cost and varies based on risk, loan term and loan amount.
2 Most property types are eligible. Environmentally sensitive properties may require an environmental loan insurance policy. Property located in a flood zone may require flood insurance. These expenses if applicable, are the borrowers responsibility. Collateral properties located in rural areas may not be eligible for this offer. Certain residential properties are not eligible. Please contact us for details. Note on Texas properties: Commercial property owners having a personal residence situated on, or adjacent to, the collateral property are not eligible for this offer.
3 You will need to pay a non-refundable deposit of up to $1,000 when accepting the terms of any loan or line of credit. Your deposit will be credited at closing against the origination fee (if any) and environmental insurance fee (if any) payable by borrower in connection with the transaction. If your deposit exceeds the origination and environmental insurance fees due at closing, you will be reimbursed for any overage. If the state or other taxing authority imposes a tax or fee on the filing of a mortgage or a deed of trust, or if the bank determines that environmental or flood insurance is required, any applicable fees are your responsibility. Purchase loans require the borrower to pay title and escrow fees and provide proof of funds for the required down payment. All financing is subject to credit approval.
