Mortgage Payment Option Program
Mortgage Payment Option Program products are flexible. Mortgage payment option program products are my choice for my home and investment property.
Mortgage payment option program loans help manage monthly income and expenses. Mortgage payment option program loans give you control over your mortgage payment. Income varies and unplanned expenses come up. Our mortgage payment is our largest monthly expense, and the least flexible. Choose one of four payment options monthly based on your needs.

Mortgage Payment Option Program Loans Minimum Payment A minimum payment is set for 60 months at a reduced rate. The current minimum payment rate is 1.90%. This maximizes cash flow and may defer payment of interest allowing greater flexibility in managing tax deductions. Read about the important tax considerations of the product. For concerns over deferred interest, read about the small amount of appreciation required to offset it.
Mortgage Payment Option Program Loans Interest Only Payment Defer paying principal and improve your cash flow. This option is not available if the interest only payment is less than the minimum payment.
Fully Amortizing Payment Options Make a principal and interest payment based on either a 30 or 15 year payment schedule. I have included a 5 Year Option ARM statement.
You may choose your index from either the 1 month LIBOR or the MTA.
Here is a 10 year average comparison between a 30 year fixed and fully indexed LIBOR, MTA, COFI, and the 1 year Treasury Index in chart form.
Additional Options You also may want to increase the term of your loan from 30 to 40 years lowering your payment even further. This is the approach I use on my own loans. If I want to use the minimum payment, I want that number as low as possible. LTVs are now available up to 100%!
The Minimum Payment Advantage The example below is based on a $400,000 mortgage. It compares a traditional 30 year fixed rate payment based on the above 10 year average to the minimum payment available based on the 10 year average. Assumes that the Minimum Payment increases by the maximum 7.5% per year.
