Buying a Home

Whether you're looking for your first home, making a move to a new community, or on the hunt for a second home or vacation getaway, buying a house is a rewarding experience. We want to keep it that way. We offer various mortgage types to suit your needs and are here to answer any questions you have during your home-buying process.

Refinancing Your Home

Love your home, but not your loan? Refinancing your mortgage means you get a new home loan to replace your existing one. Whether you're looking to lower your interest rate to save money or wanting to take advantage of a cash-out refinance to tap into your home's equity, we're here for you.

Fixed-Rate Mortgage

With a fixed rate conventional mortgage, you'll have peace of mind knowing your monthly principal and interest payments will remain exactly the same, for the life of the loan. Fixed-rate loans are available in 10-, 15-, 20-, and 30-year terms and make budgeting easy.

Adjustable Rate Mortgage

An Adjustable Rate Mortgage, sometimes referred to as an ARM, has a lower rate and lower monthly payments for the first 5 or 7 years, depending on the term you choose. After an initial period, your rate and payment may change, based on interest rates at the time.

Jumbo Rate Mortgage

If you need a home loan over $647,200, then consider a Jumbo loan. A Jumbo loan offers low rates and a choice between fixed and adjustable rates.

Veteran (VA) Mortgage

If you’re an active military member, veteran, or surviving spouse, a Veterans Affairs (VA) mortgage makes home-buying easier. All VA loans are guaranteed by the federal government and offer borrowers no down payment and no mortgage insurance.

Apply Online

First-Time FHA Mortgage

Are you a first-time homebuyer or worried you don't have enough money for closing costs or a down payment? With a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loan, your down payment could be as little as 3.5%, and you can apply with less-than-perfect credit history.
