Thinking about moving into a newer home? Here are some loan options to consider.

  • Fixed Rate Mortgage Find peace of mind knowing that your principal and interest payments will stay the same because the rate and term are locked for the life of your loan.
  • Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM) - Reduce your monthly principal and interest payment for the initial period of the loan (1,2,3 or 5yrs) with an Adjustable Rate Mortgage. Often more flexible, an ARM can be a good option if you have unique income or asset situations when it comes to loan approval.
  • Home One - Low down payment option for purchase or refinance of single family property. No income or geographic restrictions.
  • Home Possible - Perfect for the entry level homebuyer for a 1-4 unit property, with low down payment and closing costs. Benefit from the security of fixed rate financing and while utilizing grant funds. Income limits do apply.
  • Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority​ (WHEDA) - If qualified, this state agency may be able to help you as a first time homebuyer purchase your first home with options for a lower down payment, reduced closing costs, as well as expanded underwriting guidelines. Income limits do apply.
