MTA Loan Information

MTA loan products are flexible. An MTA loan is used to finance my home and investment property. 

An MTA loan helps manage income and expenses. Income varies and unplanned expenses come up. For many, our mortgage payment  is our largest monthly expense, and the least flexible. MTA loan products are designed to give greater control over your mortgage payment. Choose one of four MTA loan payment options monthly based on your cash flow needs.

        MTA Loan Minimum Payment    A payment that is set for 12 or 60 months at a reduced rate. The minimum payment rate for the 12 month MTA loan option is 1.00% and the 60 MTA loan month option is 1.90%. This maximizes cash flow and may defer payment of interest allowing greater flexibility in managing your tax deductions. Plus, this MTA loan minimum payment can not increase by more than 7.5% each year. Read more about the important tax considerations of an MTA loan. If you have concerns over deferred interest, read more about the small amount of appreciation required to offset it.

        MTA Loan Interest Only Payment    Defer paying principal and improve cash flow. This option is not available if the interest only payment is less than the minimum payment.

        Fully Amortizing Payment Options    You may make a principal and interest payment based on a 30 year or 15 year payment schedule. I have included an MTA Loan statement as well.

The MTA Loan allows you to choose your index from the 1 month LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate) or the MTA (12 Month Treasury Average).

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    If you are looking for the additional security of a fixed payment while still taking advantage of the extremely low MTA loan payment rates, there is  a 5 year fixed payment option. With the 5 year Fixed Payment, you are guaranteed a fixed minimum payment for five years. You still have the four payment options to select from  to manage cash flow. And, you also may increase the term of your loan from 30 to 40 years lowering your payment even further. LTVs are 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 on the MTA loan based on the 10 year average. Assumes the Minimum Payment increases by the maximum 7.5% per year.
