+Adjustment could occur after initial term. Published rate may be adjusted based on credit score and down payment.

If the down payment is less than 20%, mortgage insurance may be required and could increase the monthly payment and APR. The payment amount does not include homeowners insurance, flood insurance (if applicable), or property taxes that must be paid in addition to your loan payment.
The displayed Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is a measure of the cost to borrow money expressed as a yearly percentage. For mortgage loans, excluding home equity lines of credit, it includes the interest rate plus other charges or fees (such as mortgage insurance, settlement agent fees, and origination charges). When shopping for a mortgage, you can use the APR to compare the costs of similar loans between lenders.
These mortgage rates are based upon a variety of assumptions and conditions, which include a consumer credit score that may be higher or lower than your individual credit score. Your loan's interest rate will depend upon the specific characteristics of your loan transaction and your credit history up to the time of closing.
The estimated total closing costs used in the calculation above do not constitute and are not a substitute for a loan estimate, which includes an estimate of closing costs you will receive once you apply for a loan. This is NOT a mortgage loan approval or commitment to lend. The actual fees, costs, and monthly payment on your specific loan transaction may vary, and may include other additional fees and costs.
