Attention Refinance or New Purchases

For the protection of our customers and our staff, we are not taking any new mortgage loan refinance or purchase applications until further notice. We will continue to process the pending mortgage loan applications already in our pipeline.

Due to the health crisis of COVID-19, we have limited our staff and lobby access for your protection as well as our teams.

As always, our relationship with our customers is our top priority and during this challenging time, we hope to keep everyone in our communities healthy and secure.

Thank you for your understanding and we will notify you when we resume normal operations.

Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) gives you a fixed rate for a certain amount of time then can fluctuate according to the market index. The index and rate fluctuations may differ depending on the financial institution. 

Closing cost may be lower on an Adjustable Rate Mortgage.

What is Rate Cap?

A Cap is the maximum amount the interest rate can adjust after the initial fixed-period. 

PBC's cap may adjust up or down by 1% point annually after the initial fixed period with a maximum adjustment over the life of the mortgage of only 5% points above or below the initial interest rate with a minimum rate of 3%.
