Choosing the Right Mortgage - Understanding Your Options

  All offers are available in New Jersey only.

Adjustable-Rate Mortgages

Adjustable-rate mortgages - or ARMS - can offer lower interest rates at the beginning of the loan and a fixed payment for a period of time before the rate adjusts. For example, a 7/1/30 ARM product has a rate that is fixed for the first 84 months and then can adjust up or down annually based on the index and cap structure for the remaining term of the loan. Please see our loan assumption and disclosure page for details.

Fixed-Rate Mortgages

Fixed-rate mortgages tend to have higher interest rates than adjustable-rate mortgages. However, with a fixed-rate mortgage, you have the security of knowing that the monthly payment of principal and interest will stay the same throughout the life of the loan. It generally makes the most sense if you are buying a home that you plan to keep for many years. Ask a loan representative for details.

Bi-Weekly Mortgages

Twenty-six regularly scheduled payments translate to 13 monthly payments at the end of the year. This allows you to pay off the loan in a shorter time period, which may save you thousands of dollars in interest. Payments are auto-debited from a RSI Bank account every fourteen days. Ask a loan representative for details.
