"It's a well-known fact that finding your slice of paradise in Northern New Mexico comes with its unique set of financial considerations. Whether you're eyeing a quaint adobe home or a spacious ranch, stretching your dollar can be key. Enter Guadalupe Credit Union's adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) – a financial tool designed with your aspirations in mind. Our ARMs come with initially lower interest rates, giving you the breathing room you need on your monthly payments for a set time. Once this period ends, your rate will adjust with the market. This option could be your best bet if you're betting on future interest rate decreases, anticipating a boost in your income, or planning to relocate in the next few years. With an ARM, affording a little more house within the enchanting landscapes of Northern New Mexico is within your reach.
