Conventional fixed-rate mortgage
This loan is ideal if you plan to remain in the home for several years. Stay within a budget by applying for this loan with terms up to 30 years.

Adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM)
With this loan, your interest rate is fixed for 5, 7 or 10 years. After this fixed-rate period, it is adjusted annually to reflect market rates. The initial rates are often lower than conventional loans and include options with no down payment required -- ask us how.

Construction loan
