Balloon Mortgages

A balloon mortgage has an interest rate that is fixed for an initial amount of time. At the end of the term, the remaining principal balance is due. At this time, the borrower has a choice to either refinance or pay off the remaining balance.

Mr. Andy Sikora took the time to come to my home to discuss with me how to improve my credit score so I would be able to purchase my first home. He educated me on how to write letters to my creditors to remove wrongly report information. We set up a action plan to accomplish cleaning up my credit and it worked! Mr. Sikora was very diligent on following up with me to make sure I was on track to achieve my home buying goals. I would highly recommend Colonial Mortgage Capital. They ROCK!!!

There are no penalties to paying off a balloon mortgage loan before it is due. Borrowers may refinance at any time during the life of the loan.

Balloon loans typically have either 5 or 7-year terms. For example, a 7-year balloon mortgage with an interest rate of 7.5% would feature this interest rate for the entire term. After 7 years, the remaining loan balance would become due.
