Purchasing a Home
Time to move into another home? Maybe you've outgrown the one you're living in now. Perhaps you're in a better financial position than you were when you bought your last house. Maybe you're moving to a new town with a new job. While it really doesn't matter why you need a new house, it does matter how you go about purchasing it. No one likes the hassle of buying a home the old way, including us. That's why we've invested our energy into streamlining and updating the entire mortgage process. We're pleased to bring you a faster, more technologically advanced way to finance your home.
Refinancing a Home
Why refinance? It may make sense if you can lower your interest rate or if the value of your home has increased. Refinancing can be a helpful tool for home improvement, debt consolidation or simply lowering your monthly payment.
Reasons to refinance:
- Switch from an adjustable rate loan to a fixed rate mortgage
- Change from one adjustable rate loan to another to lower your monthly payment
- Reduce your interest rate and your monthly payment
- Build equity faster by shortening the term of your loan to 15 or 20 years
