KleinBank offers a variety of loan programs to meet your needs. We work with the leading lenders in the industry to provide:

Conventional Fixed-Rate and Adjustable-Rate Mortgages

Details

With a fixed-rate mortgage, the interest rate stays the same during the life of the loan. With an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM), the interest changes periodically, typically in relation to an index. While the monthly payments that you make with a fixed-rate mortgage are relatively stable, payments on an ARM loan will likely change. There are advantages and disadvantages to each type of mortgage, and the best way to select a loan product is by talking to us.
 

Conforming Conventional Fixed Rate
Term: 30 years
Maximum Amount: $417,000
Other amortization terms may be available.

Unless otherwise indicated, these APR calculations are based on the following: Conforming loans (whose maximum loan amount is below $417,000 for the contiguous states, District of Columbia and Puerto Rico or below $625,500 for Alaska, Guam, Hawaii and the Virgin Islands) are calculated based on a loan amount of $417,000 with closing costs of $12,510. Jumbo Loans (whose maximum loan amount exceed $417,000 for the contiguous states, District of Columbia and Puerto Rico or exceed $625,500 for Alaska, Guam, Hawaii and the Virgin Islands) are calculated based on a loan amount of $900,000 with closing costs of $27,000. Your actual APR may be different depending upon these factors.
 

Additional Homebuying Guidelines

Generally speaking, you can purchase a home with a value of two or three times your annual household income. However, the amount that you can borrow will also depend upon your employment history, credit history, current savings and debts, and the amount of down payment you are willing to make. You may also be able to take advantage of special loan programs for first time buyers to purchase a home with a higher value.

The amount of cash needed to purchase a home depends on a number of items. Most home purchasers will need to supply:
 

  • Earnest money: The deposit that is supplied when you make an offer on the house.
  • Down payment: A percentage of the cost of the home that is due at settlement.
  • Closing costs: Costs associated with processing paperwork to purchase or refinance a house.


For most homeowners, the monthly mortgage payments include three separate parts:
 

  • Principal: Repayment on the amount borrowed.
  • Interest: Payment to the lender for the amount borrowed.
  • Taxes and insurance: Monthly payments are normally made into a special escrow account for items like hazard insurance and property taxes. This feature is sometimes optional, in which case the fees will be paid by you directly to the County Tax Assessor and property insurance company.
