Fixed Rate Mortgages
Fixed Rate loans give you the peace of mind that your rate and payments will never change. This makes budgeting and planning your financial future simple. Fixed rate loans are a great option if you plan to live in your home for a long time.
A Jumbo loan is a mortgage above $424,100. We have a variety of competitive Jumbo options and the expertise to get you the right loan.

FHA and VA MORTGAGES
FHA (Federal Housing Authority) While exploring your home loan options, consider one backed by the federal government. Two of the most popular choices are FHA (Federal Housing Authority) and VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) loans. FHA mortgages have historically been sought by borrowers desiring a smaller down payment with reduced credit scores. FHA loans also require mortgage insurance. VA mortgages often feature 100% financing (no down payment), although a funding fee may be applicable, and are only available to current or former member of the U.S. armed forces.
*Minimum credit scores still apply.
Adjustable Rate Mortgages
An Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM) gives you a fixed rate for a portion of the loan, and then the interest rate adjusts yearly. ARM mortgages are hybrids that work together with your short and long term goals. ARMs are a great option if you plan on moving before the initial loan term ends.
- Low rates and payments are fixed for the initial portion of the loan term.
- Rates and payments adjust to reflect current market when fixed rate period ends.
- Take advantage of falling rates without refinancing.

Q: How do I know how much house I can afford?
A: 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. Give us a call, and we can help you determine exactly how much you can afford.
Q: What is the difference between a fixed-rate loan and an adjustable-rate loan?
A: 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.
Q: How are an index and margin used in an ARM?
A: An index is an economic indicator that lenders use to set the interest rate for an ARM. Generally the interest rate that you pay is a combination of the index rate and a pre-specified margin. Three commonly used indices are the One-Year Treasury Bill, the Cost of Funds of the 11th District Federal Home Loan Bank (COFI), and the London InterBank Offering Rate (LIBOR).
Q: How do I know which type of mortgage is best for me?
A: There is no simple formula to determine the type of mortgage that is best for you. This choice depends on a number of factors, including your current financial picture and how long you intend to keep your house. Inwood National Bank and our team of Mortgage Professionals can help you evaluate your choices and help you make the most appropriate decision.
Q: What does my mortgage payment include?
A: 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 & 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.
Q: How much cash will I need to purchase a home?
A: The amount of cash that is necessary depends on a number of items. Generally speaking, though, you 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 (In some cases, the seller may pay your closing costs for you through a Seller Contribution. Our Mortgage Professionals can explain this in more detail.)

I worked with Ang on a closing a couple of years ago and was impressed with the service and how things were handled in a timely matter. Also Ang was very professional while being courteous, friendly and personal at the same time. The staff at Inwood Bank are GREAT!
Friendly staff and great rates.
My mother has banked with Inwood for 40 years. Carole was very prompt and our questions were always answered. All things were done in a timely fashion and they had great rates.
My experience with Inwood was awesome! I was a first time home buyer and everything with them went extremely smooth. They made themselves very available for any questions I had and were quick to respond to emails. Definitely put me at ease through my entire process with them.
I was referred to Inwood Bank (and Mr. Poe) as a lender by my Realtor. I appreciate the excellent service provided by Mr. Poe and his team. Every question I had was answered with speed and courtesy and my loan closed sooner than originally expected, with no wrinkles or administrative issues. I plan to open a regular banking relationship with this bank because I was so highly impressed with the ease of my transaction.
We had a positive previous experience with Ang and her team, plus they offered a competitive loan rate and low closing costs.
I was impressed with Carole’s level of service and willingness to help and answer all my questions. I am very happy with everyone that assisted in the entire process; everyone was so helpful, kind and very professional. In addition, I was very satisfied with the interest rate I was offered.
It was very easy to get answers in a timely manner. The speed in which everything was done was amazing.
