Major decisions made easy

Buying a new home should be a pleasant experience. Our experienced mortgage specialists would like to work with you every step of the way and make the loan process easy and stress-free.  They help you understand your options to make an educated, confident decision.

Still not sure where to begin?  Try our Home BuyAbility Test. It will help you find out how much home is right for you, so you can feel more comfortable when you apply for your mortgage loan with us.  Once you know approximately how much home is in your price range, use the guide below or our convenient mortgage calculators to estimate your monthly payments based on the principal and interest. Closing costs are normally paid in a lump sum at the time you take out the loan. Other annual costs such as taxes, insurance and mortgage life insurance are also not included on the chart, but may be added to your monthly payments.

What types of loans do we offer?

Loan ProductBrief Description
First Front Door ProgramAre you a first-time home buyer? Standard Bank is a participating bank with the Federal Home Loan Bank, which means you could be eligible for up to $5,000 towards closing costs. Visit www.firstfrontdoor.com for more information to talk with a local Standard Bank lender.
Fixed Rate Mortgage (MPF)Fixed rate mortgages are the most common type of mortgage that locks in specific terms and rate. MPF loans are sold on the secondary market, but we will ALWAYS service your loan.
Fixed Rate Mortgage (Portfolio)Since not all situations are a cookie-cutter scenario, we know it's important to lend, 'outside-the-box.' Since we make decisions locally, we have more flexibility that banks that only sell loans on the secondary market. We can look at your individual loan and do our best to meet YOUR needs.
Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM)Usually have a lower start rate than fixed mortgage loans. You will know how much the rate can adjust over the life of the loan and the maximum amount you would have to pay in the future. If you think you will only be in the house for a few years or feel that interest rates may go down, then this may be the loan for you.
Low Down Payment LoanDon't have a lot to put down? Providing you meet certain qualifications, you may opt to only pay a lesser amount as a down payment. We know flexibility is important and this is just another way we are able to put YOU first.
Refinance Are rates lower now than they were when you financed your home? You could save thousands of dollars by refinancing! You also have an option to receive cash for additions or renovations.
Construction LoanWe work with many local builders and families as they build their dream home! These loans are either fixed or adjustable rate mortgages. We analyze your situation and offer flexible solutions.
Hometown LoanPerhaps you are retired, a young professional, or need extra assistance financing your home. If you have good credit and a combined household income that qualifies for the program, this product may be right for you. These loans require a relatively small down payment and offer a below-market interest rate. We even pick up a portion of your closing costs!
Jumbo LoanJumbo loans are for amounts greater than $417,000. This is a product we look at on a case-by-case basis to make sure we meet your needs with a competitive term and rate.
Lot LoanLooking to buy a lot to build? We offer financing for that, too!
