We like the lower payments of a 30-year mortgage but would also like to build equity and pay off our home more quickly. Should we go with a 15-year mortgage instead?

If you’re having difficulty deciding between two mortgage terms, you might want to consider taking out a longer mortgage term to give your budget the flexibility of having a lower payment requirement — just in case — while still giving yourself the option of paying additional principal since there is no prepayment penalty. In general, mortgages with lower terms have lower interest rates making it possible to build equity in your home faster or save in preparation for retirement or a child’s education more quickly.

If we want to pay extra, do Sunmark mortgages have a prepayment penalty?

Sunmark mortgages have no prepayment penalty, so you can pay extra toward your principal any time you wish.

We’re saving for a down payment, but worry the right house will pass us by before we reach our goals. How much down payment is enough?

Sunmark has mortgage programs for credit-qualified individuals looking to finance up to 97% of their mortgage. If you’re just starting out or starting over and have limited funds available for a down payment, you may want to consider this option.

What is a VA loan? Who can qualify?

These loans are guaranteed and administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs and are available to qualified individuals who have served in the armed forces. If you’re a qualified veteran and wish to purchase a home, a VA loan may be right for you. For more information, check out the VA’s Home Loan Guaranty program online.

We’ve built up some equity in our home and would like to take advantage of today’s lower interest rates and get lower payments. What are our refinance options?

Homeowners choose to refinance their mortgages for a variety of reasons:

  • Lower interest rates
  • Take advantage of an improved credit rating
  • Debt consolidation
  • Home improvements

Sunmark can also refinance your first mortgage into a second mortgage if you have built up equity in your home. This means that we will pay off your first mortgage and roll it into a home equity loan in which Sunmark is the first lien holder.
