Fixed Rate Mortgage Options

CFE’s most popular and low-risk option, the Fixed Rate Mortgage helps you buy a home with ease. With terms ranging from 10, 15, 20, to even 30 years and an interest rate that is fixed throughout, a Fixed Rate Mortgage may be right for you when making your home buying decision.

Options for Adjustable-Rate Mortgages

Are you planning to sell your home within 3 to 10 years? CFE’s Adjustable-Rate Mortgage could be the ideal mortgage for you. The rate and payment are fixed for the first 3, 5, 7, or 10 years and adjust annually after that for the remaining term. This option is good for those who do not want to be locked into a Fixed Rate Mortgage.
