Mortgage & Home Equity

Fixed Rate Mortgage

When you purchase a home, you want to know what your monthly payment is going to be each month so you can plan your budget. With a fixed-rate mortgage from JVB, you can select a loan term anywhere from 15-30 years and your rate will be locked in for the life of the loan.


Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM)

If a fixed rate isn’t for you, you may want to consider an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM). A 5- or 7-year ARM gives you an initial period of time when your annual percentage rate and monthly payment of principal and interest remain the same (five or seven years); after the initial period, the rate then adjusts annually. This product is perfect for homeowners who expect to change homes before the mortgage period ends. An adjustable rate mortgage frequently provides a lower interest rate than a fixed rate mortgage. You will also enjoy peace of mind knowing that your loan includes limits on the amount your rate can change annually and over the life of the mortgage.


Construction and Renovation

When you are ready to build a new home, or renovate your existing home, let JVB take the work out of financing your project. Our goal is to make the “business end” of the construction process easy, so you can focus on the project at hand. One-stop permanent financing is available with attractive fixed and variable rate options.
