Fixed Rate Loans 

Fixed-rate loans are the most common loan for many homebuyers because the monthly payments (of principal and interest) are stable. The interest rate you lock-in at the time of application will be the same interest rate you pay for the life of the loan. Clay County Savings Bank offers a 15-year, 20-year or 30-year mortgage. The maximum loan amount for our fixed-rate loans is $766,550. If the loan amount exceeds $766,550, we also offer adjustable-rate jumbo loans.

A fixed-rate loan is typically advantageous if you plan on owning your home for five or more years. If interest rates increase, your monthly payment of principal and interest will not be affected. However, it is important to note that your monthly payment may increase as tax and insurance costs go up over time. Further, because of the long-term nature of fixed-rate loans, the interest rate is generally higher than other types of mortgage loans.

Our fixed-rate loans are typically sold to Freddie Mac, but Clay County Savings Bank retains the servicing.

Adjustable Rate Loans

Adjustable-rate mortgages, commonly known as ARMs, are loans in which the interest rate can change during the life of the loan.  Clay County Savings Bank offers 1-year, 3/1 and 5/1 ARMs.   The interest rate on the 1-year ARM adjusts annually.  The interest rate on the 3/1 and 5/1 ARM is fixed for the first 3 or 5 years, respectively, and then adjusts annually thereafter.  At the end of the initial period and at every adjustment period, for owner-occupied home loans, the interest will adjust to 2.75% (the “margin”) over the weekly average yield on U.S. Treasury securities adjusted to a constant maturity of one year (the “index”).

Why Choose an ARM Loan? 

ARMs usually start with a lower interest rate and a lower monthly payment than a fixed-rate loan.  The lower rate (and lower monthly payment) may allow for a higher loan amount.  ARMs are popular for those who do not plan on living in their home for the entire term of the loan.  This will allow you to capitalize on the initial lower payments.  You may also want to consider an ARM, if you plan on your income increasing, which will offset the impact of potentially higher payments should the interest rate increase.

If you choose an ARM loan, you need to remember that the interest rate can adjust during the life of the loan, which means that your monthly payment may change.  However, Clay County Savings Bank has rate caps (“ceilings” and “floors”) on all ARMs for each adjustment period and over the life of the loan.  Typically, for owner-occupied home loans, the interest rate will not increase or decrease more than 2.00% during any change or adjustment period and no more than 6.00% from the initial interest rate during the lifetime of the loan.
