The mortgage note will be at the stated rate. At closing, an agreement may be entered into by both parties reducing the rate by .25%.  This agreement will stay in effect as long as we are able to transfer automatic payments from your Bank of Greene County checking account as the payments are due.  If there are insufficient or uncollected funds in excess of three times in a calendar year, the agreement becomes null and void, and the interest rate reverts back to the note rate.

The Bank of Greene County requires an escrow account on all mortgages for the payment of town, village and school taxes, as well as homeowners insurance (and flood insurance and PMI insurance, if applicable).  Escrow may be waived; certain terms and conditions apply.

Since a mortgage is a legally binding contract between yourself and the Bank, we recommend that you engage the services of an attorney.  The Bank’s attorney will represent the Bank’s interest only.  Our attorney will charge for his/her services.  Should you have any questions regarding the mortgage application, rates, fees, or requirements, please call our Lending Center at (518) 943-1424.

The above rates and terms are subject to daily change without notice.  Please call our lending center at (518) 943-1424 for current rates and terms.
