I still have a not very pleasant feeling about this company. The company is not licensed, is not a legitimate lender. This suggests fraud. It is important for me that everything is legal and stable...

Bank of America Mortgage of February 2023

Types of home loans

Bank of America has a set of mortgage programs for both first-time homebuyers and refinance loan options. You can compare the programs and decide on the right mortgage to take according to your needs.

You can get conventional, FHA, VA, and jumbo loans. The loan amounts go up to $5 million, and the minimum down payment is from 0% to 5%.

The fixed-rate mortgage terms are available for 30, 20, and 15 years. Adjustable-rate Bank of America mortgage terms are available for 10 years and 6 months, 7 years and 6 months, and 5 years and 6 months.

Home equity

This home loan allows the borrowers to get the sums against their home equity and use their house as collateral.

The interest rate is variable. For the first 6 months, you will get a 6.24% variable APR, and after that, your interest rate will be an 8.65% variable APR.

For signing up for an automatic monthly payment option, you get an interest rate reduction of 0.25%. For initial withdrawal, when you open the account, you get a 0.10% interest rate reduction for each $10,000 and up to a maximum of 1.50%. Bank of America Preferred Rewards Program members can receive an interest rate reduction of up to 0.625%.

The home equity has no application fee, no closing costs, and no annual fee. There are no closing costs, only on the lines of credit of up to $1,000,000. You can also convert your variable balance rate to a fixed-rate loan.

Mortgage

When you take out a mortgage, you have three loan options. The interest rate and payments depend on whether the rate is changeable and for how long you take out a loan.

For a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, you get an interest rate of 6.250% and an APR of 6.483%. For a 15-year fixed-rate mortgage, you get an interest rate of 5.5% and an APR of 5.899%. For 5 years and 6 months variable ARM, you get an interest rate of 5.75% and an APR of 6.64%.

ARMs can increase after the fixed-rate period. It will be 5 years for 5 years and 6 months mortgage, 7 years for a 7 years and 6 months mortgage, and 10 years for 10 years and 6 months mortgage.

For example, for a home purchase price of $250,000 and a down payment of $50,000, and ZIP code 95464 (ZIP code for Lake County, California), the monthly payment on a 30-year mortgage will be $1,231.

Mortgage refinance

Bank of America mortgage refinance program allows you to lower your monthly payment and pay back your mortgage faster.

The refinance rates are the same as for the mortgage for first-time homebuyers. There are options to refinance a fixed-rate loan, adjustable-rate mortgage, FHA loan, and VA loan.

For FHA refinance loan, you get no maximum income limits. There is a fixed-rate loan available. For VA refinance loans, you can also get a fix-rate loan available.
