Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be a member TruWest Credit Union to get an adjustable-rate mortgage?
Yes. A membership is required if you are approved for the loan.
What is the difference between an ARM and fixed rate loan?
With a fixed rate mortgage, the interest rate is set when you take out the loan and will not change. With an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM), the interest rate may go up or down. Many ARMs will start at a lower interest rate than fixed rate mortgages. This initial rate may stay the same for months or years.

What should I consider when reviewing loan rates?
Be an informed consumer by understanding the differences between home loan options and shopping around for rates. This will give you the essentials needed to pick the right loan for your situation.
Think about how long you plan to keep the loan. If you are looking to sell your home in a few years, consider an adjustable-rate mortgage, which can provide lower payments and flexibility. But if you are in it for the long-haul, a fixed-rate mortgage can offer the comfort of always knowing your payment and an interest rate that doesn’t change over the length of the loan.
Understand the relationship between rates and points. Points are considered prepaid interest and may be tax deductible. One point is equal to 1% of the loan, so one point
