CapCenter offers a wide range of mortgages, including conventional, jumbo, FHA, and VA loans. The lender also offers mortgage refinancing. You can choose a 10, 15, 20, or 30-year repayment period, and you can qualify for a mortgage with a down payment as low as 3%.

CapCenter is right for homebuyers who want to eliminate closing costs. Most mortgage lenders typically charge closing costs ranging from 1 to 3% of the value of your mortgage, which can be thousands of dollars. CapCenter does not charge these fees and doesn’t subtract them from your mortgage principal.
Instead, it charges slightly higher-than-average interest rates. Depending on the length of your mortgage and the interest rate you qualify for, you could end up saving money by paying no closing costs but a higher interest rate. CapCenter offers a detailed mortgage calculator to help you determine how much you can save.
