Looking to buy that perfect house, but worried about the size of the monthly payments? With an adjustable rate mortgage, you might be surprised at what you can afford.
A TCU 5/1 Adjustable Rate Mortgage doesn't just buy you a nice house. It buys you time. For five years, you enjoy a lower interest rate. That gives you time to get settled in, figure out a monthly budget, maybe earn a salary increase and perhaps beef up your savings along the way. After that, your rate is adjusted annually for the remainder of the mortgage term.

Developing a budget based on your monthly income, expenses and savings is the first step.
Even a small, regular contribution toward your retirement has the potential to grow into a large nest egg.
It is important to build up your savings to cover emergencies and to plan for your future. As a general rule, you should maintain enough savings to cover three to six months of your regular expenses.
