To find your dream home - try Homefinder - a service of the Bloomington Board of Realtors that lists area homes for sale.
We offer in-house first mortgages, retained and serviced at our bank, as well as, secondary market products with nationally competitive rates. Our fixed rate mortgage provides a level payment for the term of the loan while an adjustable rate (ARM) allows your rate and payment to fluctuate with market conditions. We offer a wide variety of terms and programs to meet your home financing needs.
We can also provide financing for rental property funding, mobile & modular homes with real estate, construction loans, commercial real estate and farm financing.
Our second mortgage loan program can be useful for small loan needs, refinancing, remodeling, and some types of debt consolidation and/or any one time personal borrowing where an on-going equity line does not meet your financial needs.
As a second mortgage is simply a security interest in real estate filed after a current first mortgage position, a second mortgage loan may be made behind an OCSB first mortgage. As with any mortgage, a level of equity and verified ownership interest is required.
When questions arise concerning the best way to borrow for your family's needs, please call on one of our loan officers for the loan choice that's best for you.
Choice Equity Line is a preapproved line of credit secured by the equity in your home. You can finance a new car, make home improvements, take a well-needed vacation or use the money any way you see fit. Choice Equity Lines can provide a minimum credit line of $5,000 to a maximum of $50,000 based upon the equity in your home and your ability to repay the loan. Once approved, you draw from the Equity Line using special checks we provide for you.
