5/1 Adjustable Rate Mortgage

Our First Time Homebuyer Program features a 5/1Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM). This loan offers a low fixed rate for the first five years—that helps you save more during your early years of home ownership. After five years, you'll enjoy built-in rate protections: your rate can adjust by no more than 2% per year, and can never increase more than 5% above your initial starting rate.

Looking for another option?

Advantis offers a wide variety of mortgage solutions that fit the needs of most homebuyers, including fixed-rate loans with flexible terms and as little as 3% down (for qualified borrowers).**

We'll be your helpful guide—from here to "Hello new home."

Buying your first home can feel overwhelming, so we do everything possible to lessen the stress, and make it feel simple and easy. You'll have the constant guidance of a Portland-based mortgage expert to help you from application to keys in hand.
