Fixed-Rate Mortgages

A fixed-rate mortgage loan is one of the most common mortgage loans available. It offers several advantages for the borrower, including the peace of mind of a fixed interest rate for the life of the loan. A fixed-rate mortgage can be used to buy a primary residence or an investment property. It is offered in a variety of loan terms to meet a range of borrowing needs.

Features

  • Fast, local decision-making
  • 10-year, 15-year, 20-year, or 30-year terms
  • Rate is locked for entire loan term
  • No prepayment penalty
  • Purchase a primary residence or invest in a second home

Adjustable-Rate Mortgages

An adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) is one in which the interest rate changes periodically. Penn Community Bank offers ARMs that lock in the initial interest rate for 3 years, 5 years, 7 years, or 10 years. After the initial fixed-rate period, the rate will adjust up or down based on a standard, industry-recognized interest rate benchmark.

Rate adjustment caps protect the borrower from unpredictable increases by limiting how much your interest rate could increase or decrease.

Features:

  • Fast, local decision-making
  • 15-year and 30-year terms
  • Interest rate fixed for initial period
  • Available in 3-year, 5-year, 7-year, or 10-year initial rate locks
  • Caps offer protection against unlimited rate increases
  • No prepayment penalty

Bi-Weekly Mortgages

With a bi-weekly mortgage, payments are automatically deducted from your Penn Community Bank checking account every 14 days, allowing you to build equity in your home faster.

Like a fixed-rate mortgage loan, a bi-weekly mortgage features an interest rate that is consistent for the life of the loan. It can be used to purchase or refinance a primary home, and it requires no additional fees.

Features:

  • Fast, local decision-making
  • Convenient, automatic payments
  • Interest rate fixed for life of loan
  • Builds equity faster
  • No prepayment penalty
