Check out our FAQs:

I'm nervous about adjustable rate mortgages. Are they a good idea?  Adjustable Rate Mortgages, or ARMs, have developed a poor reputation in recent years. That's unfortunate, because much like financial institutions, all adjustable mortgages are NOT equal. The fact is, a well structured adjustable rate mortgage can provide an affordable financing opportunity. Rest assured, with a Northland ARM there will never be surprise increases or skyrocketing rates.

What are Northland's Mortgage Rate Specials? We currently offer two adjustable rate options! The 3/3 can adjust once every three years. The 5/5 can adjust once every five years. See Full Disclosures below.

Do rates always go up? Could my rate ever go down? Each adjustment period, your rate can change by as much as 2%. The rate is based on the current value of Treasury Bills and can raise, lower or stay exactly the same. However, it will never go lower than the current rate (3.31% APR for the 3/3 Mortgage, 3.68% APR for the 5/5 Mortgage), nor will it raise by more than 6% APR over the entire life of the loan. See full disclosures below.

I'm unhappy with my current mortgage. Could I apply for refinancing at these rates?  Absolutely! We're here to help you find the right mortgage for your needs. Give us a call at 989-739-1401 or stop by your favorite Northland branch and let's talk about it!
