Mortgage Loans

Major mortgage 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
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.
