5/5 Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM)
Our 5/5 ARM is different from the ARMs offered by other lenders. It gives you more buying power, lower payments, and can save you thousands of dollars in interest.
Most adjustable-rate mortgages are great during the initial fixed-rate period, but then the rate can rise substantially and can change once every year for the rest of the loan term. With our new 5/5 ARM, your rate is locked for five-year intervals and can increase by no more than 1% at each adjustment.
Home Equity Loans
Need funds for some major home improvements or a big-ticket purchase? If you’re a homeowner with equity in your home, we can help. Signal Financial offers two types of home equity products:
Fixed Second Trust Mortgage
- Fixed Interest rate for entire term of the mortgage
- Full loan amount disbursed
Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
- Interest rate is 1.99% APR* for the first 12 months, then subject to adjust quarterly based on The Wall Street Journal Prime Rate
- Withdraw money as you need it, for up to 10 years from origination date
Earn cash rewards.
Members who work with an agent in our network earn an average of $1,545.00 in HomeAdvantage Cash Rewards!**
Just use any agent in the HomeAdvantage network to buy or sell your home, and you’ll earn a cash rebate equal to 20% of the agent’s commission. Use one of our agents to buy AND sell, and you’ll earn a rebate on both transactions! As a buyer, you can apply it towards closing costs or take the cash outright! As a seller, you can use it reduce your agent’s commission. It’s your choice.
The rebate is based on the total home price, not the amount mortgaged.
