  Fixed-Rate Loans 
Many homebuyers prefer to lock in a ‘fixed’ interest rate for the life of the loan. Planning budgets can be easier when you know what your mortgage payment will be every month. With flexible terms up to 30 years, it can be a great choice if you plan to stay in your home for more than a few years. 
 Get up to $5,000. More information.
  Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM)
If you expect personal income to increase reliably in the future, or plan on being in your home only a short period, you may want to consider an ARM.  An ARM’s variable rate may offer a lower interest rate to start, and then adjust periodically (up or down) within pre-determined limits. 
 
  Construction Mortgage
Having a local mortgage lender really helps when you need extra flexibility in planning and building your dream home. The experienced JBT mortgage experts can help synchronize all your financing needs so you can focus on more important decisions – like the latest shower tile choices or kitchen cabinetry options. We’ll be happy to customize a complete financing plan to fit your needs.
 
  Custom Financing Solutions
As a local bank, JBT can be more flexible when customizing a financing solution for unusual situations. No matter what you’d like to achieve, just ask us about it. We’ll do what we can to design a customized mortgage solution that fits you and your family perfectly.
