Fixed rate options
We have a variety of fixed programs to make home ownership a reality for you. Talk with our loan officers about first-time home buying programs, VA loans, FHA loans, USDA loans and 10 to 30-year terms to see which programs meet your needs best. All our loan programs offer competitive rates and low closing cost options.*
Refinancing your mortgage can give you the flexibility to take advantage of lower rates, pay off your home loan sooner or allow you to take some of the equity out for home improvements. OCCU's mortgage loan officers are happy to sit down with you and discuss the options before you fill out an application.
Mortgage options differ based on the amount you’re looking to borrow. For mortgages that exceed the standard conforming loan amount of $510,400, a jumbo loan may be a great option. Most lenders require a 20 to 30 percent down payment, but OCCU Jumbo Home Loans require as little as five percent down.
It’s the move that can save you thousands. Financing or refinancing your home with a 15-year mortgage shortens the lifetime of your loan and has less interest compared to traditional 30-year mortgages. See how you can score extra points for your financial picture.
