Construction Loans

We offer 9- and 12-month construction loans that will convert to a permanent mortgage loan once the home is complete. The traditional loan can be a 15-, 20- or 30-year fixed-rate mortgage or an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) that is fixed for a shorter period such as 5, 7 or 10 years. After that period, it adjusts every 6 months for the remaining 30 years.

Common Questions

A mortgage is a big commitment. Before you start house hunting, we suggest meeting with one of our mortgage experts to discuss your individual circumstances and needs.

This depends on your personal situation. A fixed rate mortgage means you have a set interest rate and your payments remain steady through the life of your mortgage. With an adjustable rate mortgage, your interest rate will fluctuate over the life of your loan, which affects the amount of your payment.

A down payment is cash that you pay up front to get the loan. It is deducted from the total amount of your mortgage and it is what helps you to start building equity in your home. It's best to talk with one of our mortgage experts to figure out what you need for your down payment.

To apply for a mortgage, you'll need to show proof of income. Talk with one of our mortgage experts prior to shopping for your home so you can get prequalified.
