Traditional Mortgages

Fixed Rate Mortgages

With a fixed rate mortgage, your monthly principal and interest payment will remain the same over the life of the loan. We offer a number of fixed rate programs for purchase and refinance transactions with a variety of terms including Conventional Mortgages, Government Loan Programs, and Jumbo Mortgage Programs for higher balance loans.  

Adjustable Rate Mortgages

With an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (or ARM), your interest rate is established for a specific period of time and then may adjust based on changes in an index. The change in the rate will result in a change in your monthly principal and interest payment. ARMs typically have a rate that starts below fixed rate mortgages. Similar to fixed rate loans, these products are available for purchase or refinance transactions and feature a variety of term options. These are available for conventional and jumbo loan amounts.

Home Equity Products

Home Equity Line of Credit Special

AD - Special Introductory Rate fixed for six months at 2% APR. After Introductory Period Rates as low as 3.25% APR.
*All loans are subject to credit approval and program guidelines. The introductory rate is fixed for the first six billing cycles and is subject to change on the first day of the seventh billing cycle after closing ("Introductory Period"). After the Introductory Period the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) will be subject to change each billing cycle, however, it will never exceed 16% or fall below 3.25%. The monthly APR changes will be based on the Prime Rate as published in the Money Rates section of The Wall Street Journal plus a margin. The Prime Rate as of 4/6/21 was 3.25% and the rate shown of 3.25% is based on a $100,000 line of credit and a 85% Combined Loan to Value (CLTV). Other terms and rates are available and actual APR may vary based on amount of line and CLTV. The maximum CLTV cannot exceed 90%. Five Star Bank will pay the associated third-party fees at the time of closing. These fees generally total between $750 and $1,500. If the loan is terminated within 36 months of closing, you will be required to reimburse Five Star Bank for these fees. Hazard, flood, and title insurance, if applicable, are required. Property must be in New York State.
 
Additional happiness in progress
You’ve put a lot of love into your home. It’s time to let it give a little back to you. We can help you borrow against the equity in your home for things like building an addition, updating the kitchen or bath, paying for your child’s college tuition or purchasing a car.

With a Home Equity Line of Credit you enjoy a six month introductory rate so you can reduce your interest payments on your next big project. Being able to make several draws on your line of credit also helps in emergencies or unexpected events. It does have an adjustable rate, but you only pay after using the line. What that means is during the draw period, you only pay interest on the balance you use and those payments may change over time. The Five Star Bank Home Equity Loan is a great option if you have a planned project with a fixed cost. Unlike the Home Equity Line of Credit, The Home Equity Loan features a fixed rate with steady payments for the term that works best for you.
