Important disclosures, assumptions and APR Information

General Disclosures

  • The displayed Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is a measure of the cost to borrow money expressed as a yearly percentage. For mortgage loans, excluding home equity lines of credit, it includes the interest rate plus other charges or fees (such as mortgage insurance, discount points, and origination fees). For home equity lines, the APR simply reflects the interest rate. When shopping for a mortgage, you can use the APR to compare the costs of similar loans between lenders.
  • Mortgage interest rates shown are based on a 60-day rate lock period. Under certain circumstances, a 60-day rate lock may not be available.
  • These mortgage rates are based upon a variety of assumptions and conditions which include a consumer credit score which may be higher or lower than your individual credit score. Your loan's interest rate will depend upon the specific characteristics of your loan transaction and your credit history up to the time of closing.
  • The estimated total closing costs above do not constitute and are not a substitute for a loan estimate, which includes an estimate of closing costs, than you will receive once you apply for a loan. The amounts provided above for Estimated Total Closing Costs, are estimations based on the state selected. This is NOT a mortgage loan approval or commitment to lend. The actual fees, costs and monthly payment on your specific loan transaction may vary, and may include city, county or other additional fees and costs.

Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs)

  • For adjustable-rate loans, your monthly principal and interest payment will be fixed for a period of time, and then may change based on annual interest rate adjustments. Before choosing an ARM, you should decide if you can manage the maximum estimated payment if the rate increases. To fully understand minimum and maximum payments, please speak to a home mortgage consultant.
  • For government (FHA/VA) ARM interest rates, at adjustment your new mortgage rate will be the average weekly yield on Treasury securities adjusted to a constant maturity of one year, plus a margin of 1.75%, subject to annual and lifetime adjustment caps.


  • Up to 100% financing may be available with a maximum loan amount of $424,100 (higher amounts may be allowed in high-cost areas). Most VA loans require the borrower to pay a 'funding fee'. This fee may be paid out of pocket or financed into the loan amount. At the direction of the United States Congress and the Department of Veterans Affairs VA Funding Fees may increase or decrease without notice.
  • If you meet the eligibility requirements of the VA program, gifts or grants may be used for down payments.

Fully Indexed Payment

The amount of the principal and interest payment calculated when using the fully indexed rate.

Fully Indexed Interest Rate

The fully indexed interest rate is equal to the margin plus the index (an economic indicator used to determine changes in the interest rate).

First Adjusted Payment
New estimated monthly principal-and-interest payment when the interest rate on an adjustable-rate loan is reset. After the initial fixed-rate period, your interest rate can fluctuate annually, which may significantly impact your monthly payment.

First Adjusted Interest Rate
Estimate of the interest rate on an adjustable-rate loan when it first adjusts after the fixed-rate period. Future rates can't be predicted, so it's calculated by adding the current index rate to the margin (subject to first adjustment cap).


A loan that exceeds Fannie Mae's and Freddie Mac's loan limits. Also called a non-conforming loan.

Conventional conforming mortgage
A mortgage that is not obtained under a government program (FHA or VA) and satisfies the underwriting guidelines and loan limits set by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.

Annual Percentage Rate (APR)
The cost to borrow money expressed as a yearly percentage. For mortgage loans, excluding home equity lines of credit, it includes the interest rate plus other charges or fees. For home equity lines, the APR is just the interest rate.

The percentage of an amount of money which is paid for its use for a specified time.
