Fixed Rate Mortgages

We offer 10, 15, 20, and 30 year terms for both primary and secondary residences.

One-Year Adjustable Rate (ARM) Mortgages

The initial rate on this mortgage is fixed for a one-year period. The rate is adjusted annually thereafter on the loan's anniversary date.

"2 for 1" Mortgage & Home Equity Combo

By opening both a Summit mortgage and a Summit home equity loan, buyers receive a special preferred home equity rate with no closing costs.1

80/10/10 or 80/15/5 Mortgages

With an 80/10/10 or 80/15/5, buyers get a standard mortgage for 80% of the purchase price, put 5% or 10% down, and borrow the remaining 10% or 15% in a separate second mortgage. This option let's buyers avoid Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI), possibly reducing their monthly mortgage payment.
