A New Alternative to the Fixed Mortgage
Enter a new alternative. How about a 30 year loan that's fixed for the first 15 years, then 'adjusts' once (only once!) for the remaining 15 years? How about if the starting rate is just a small increment above the 15 year fixed rate, but still well below the 30 year fixed rate? Since the average mortgage is held for only about 7 years, this seems a no-brainer.
Of course this loan has some fine print, but doesn't seem to be too unusual. It has a 'jumbo' upper loan limit of $2M. This mortgage is offered by Prospect Mortgage, which as an office in Orleans. Call them at 508-862-6175 for more details.
