100% Financing Loans
These loans require no down payment for qualified borrowers. Allowed on both single family and condominiums, this is one of the most flexible financing options available.
Fixed-Rate Mortgages - Predictable Payments
Fixed-rate mortgages offer a consistent interest rate and monthly payment throughout the term of the loan. Advantages include predictable payments, rate stability during market fluctuations, benefits for larger down payments and available financing for properties commonly restricted by government loans.
Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM) - Flexible Down Payment and Underwriting
ARM loans feature a fixed rate and payment for a set period of time. Once the initial interest rate term has ended, the payment could adjust for the remaining term of the loan. Advantages may include a lower initial interest rate and payment compared to a fixed-rate loan, flexible down payment requirements including 100% financing and flexible underwriting.
Medical/Dental Resident Loans
This in-house product offers flexible financing options, including 100% financing, for medical and dental residents looking to purchase in the Iowa Corridor.
Construction and Lot Loans - Build Your Dream Home
Construction loans are temporary line of credit loans used to finance the construction of a new house. Once the house is complete, the loan is refinanced into permanent financing such as a 15 or 30 year loan.
Jumbo Loans - High Loan Amounts
The maximum conforming loan limit is $484,350. Jumbo loans offer borrowers the ability to borrow more than the conforming limit on a single mortgage.
