Commerce Bank is committed to residential real estate funding and offers a variety of loans. The latest to come into their fold is the 5-1 Interest only adjustable rate mortgage. The fixed interest term is 5 years and all the customer pays is the interest for that time. They also offer a one year adjustable rate mortgage. With a low interest rate for the first year it’s just right for the purchaser to get settled in his new home and take advantage of those favorable market trends. Jumbo loans are available in both fixed rate and adjustable rate types.
Commerce Bank offers fixed rate balloon mortgages. This type of loan has a fixed payment amortized on a 30 year schedule, with a short term. The balance is due at the end of the term. A first time buyer program is available. These require a low down payment, some of which may be a gift. They are subject to income limitations. A no income verification fixed rate mortgage is available and is ideal for the self employed. It may be used for purchase or refinancing. Home equity lines of credit are available as well. These have the advantage of no closing costs on loan under $100,000, no application fees, no title fees and no points. The interest may even be tax deductible (check with your tax preparer).
