The response to this announcement has been strong with over $36 million in applications already on the books. “The feedback from our members has been extremely positive,” said Jack Gaffney, executive vice president, Lending. “We are happy to be able to offer another great mortgage option for our military members and their families.”
The new 3/5 and 5/5 conforming and jumbo ARMs begin with a low, constant rate, then adjust once every 5 years. The credit union does not charge an application fee and mortgage insurance is not required on 3/5 and 5/5 ARMs, as well as many other conventional loans. In addition to Adjustable Rate Mortgages, the credit union also offers competitive Fixed, VA & FHA loans and 100% financing. “In 2011, we saw more members taking advantage of some lower home prices and Navy Federal’s great rates ” said Gaffney. “We anticipate an increase in 2012 home ownership as we continue to provide our members help with closing costs.”
To help members with the home buying process, Navy Federal also recently launched it’s Home Center, an interactive website that takes the guess work out of buying a home. It allows members to learn the ins and outs of the entire home buying process along with helping them determine their budget, calculate payments and track their progress through a personalized workbook.
