Mortgage Loans

Mortgage Options

5/5 ARM

Lock in a monthly payment and interest rate that will not change for 5 years. Every 5 years, the interest rate is adjusted. Adjustments fall in years 6, 11, 16, 21 and 26.

15/15 “RateBuster”

For many homebuyers, lower monthly payments offer the opportunity to afford a bigger home. Adjustable-rate mortgages like the 15/15 ARM RateBuster Loan, typically offer a lower initial interest rate than other 30-year fixed-rate loans that results in lower monthly payments.

Reverse Mortgages

For homeowners who are 62 years or older, let your home start working for you! With a Reverse Mortgage, homeowners can convert part of the equity in your home to cash with no restriction on how you use the funds. The borrower retains title/ownership of the home and the lender will never own the home.

    90% Loan-to-Value

    • No PMI (PMI = Private Mortgage Insurance)
    • Only 10% down to avoid mortgage insurance
    • Priced 0.25% above market

    HarmonyLoan™

    The Loan With a One "Click" Rate Reset Feature

    If you’re tired of refinancing your mortgage to keep up with lower rates the HarmonyLoan is right for you. The HarmonyLoan™ is a unique mortgage loan offered by Democracy FCU through our mortgage partner Credit Union Mortgage Association.

    Take Advantage of Lower Interest Rates

    With a HarmonyLoan™ when interest rates fall, you manage your own rate-reset online.  A simple "click" locks in your new interest rate. You may be eligible to request a reset of your rate or the fixed rate period of your loan every 120 days.

    How Does the HarmonyLoan™ Work?

    • A simple "click" online  locks in new terms (interest rate & fixed period of ARM)
    • You only have to wait 6 months after closing before the first opportunity to "click" (reset rate)
    • After the first 6 months you can reset the rate every 120 days
    • Loan must be current with NO late payments in past 12 months
    • The reset must reduce the interest rate by at least 1/4%

    Eliminate Hassle and Cost

    The HarmonyLoan™ program resets your interest rate with No Points and No Closing Costs.  It’s fast, easy and affordable.

    Avoid Credit Risk

    When you refinance a traditional mortgage loan, the rate is based on your current financial situation. Changes in your situation—such as a job loss, salary reduction or significant purchase—can impact your ability to qualify for a refinance. With the HarmonyLoan™ as long as you pay on time, you can lower your rate instantly.

    Where is the HarmonyLoan™ Available?

    To find out more details about the HarmonyLoan™ call 703.647.7066.

    Adjustable Rate Mortgage

    With an Adjustable Rate Mortgage, the interest rate may change in relation to an index and payments go up or down accordingly.

    If you don’t plan to stay in your home for a long time, you may want to consider an ARM, which typically has a lower initial interest rate than a fixed rate, and you may save money on interest charges. The money you save could be put toward retirement, paying off debt, building an emergency fun, and more.

    Fixed Rate Mortgage

    With a Fixed Rate Mortgage, the interest rate and monthly payment of principal and interest stay the same for the life of the loan.
