Borrowing 101

The strategy seems straightforward enough - don't borrow more than you can afford. The problem is that many people get swept up in the mortgage amount they are pre-approved for and simply hit the ground running looking for the best house their money can buy.

What you may not realize, however, is that the mortgage amount you're approved for might not be the amount you can comfortably manage. What do we mean by this? Basically, that you spend a large portion of your total income on your new home, leaving little else for other expenses. This is what many refer to as "house poor."

To us the most important part of helping you realize your vision of home ownership is looking at the big picture. We consider your entire financial profile, factoring in your household and living expenses, along with any other financial obligations and even your short- and long-term goals, so we can help you come up with the solution that is most affordable for you.

With some of the lowest rates around, we'll help you find the mortgage solution and term length that fits your life.

  • 1 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage at 2.84%*(APR)
  • 5 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage at 2.89%*(APR)

We can even show you how you can be mortgage-free faster. Our 5 Year Accelerator Mortgage at 2.60%**(APR) lets you take advantage of a variable rate while interest is low, and gives you the security of locking-in to a fixed rate at anytime. It's the best of both worlds.

We've been helping our members purchase new homes, secure lower rates and renovate the homes they're in for over 70 years. Find out about the Comtech Fire difference when it comes to saving you money on your borrowing needs.
