Know Your Options
- Conventional Mortgages for Primary Residences, Secondary Residences or Investment Properties: Fixed-rate and adjustable-rate loans (ARM) are available. Choose from 10-, 15-, 20- or 30-year mortgages as well as other repayment terms. Primary residence and secondary residence conventional mortgages offer low down payment requirements.
- Lot Loans: This loan is used to finance a residential lot or land suitable for construction of your new home.
- New Construction Loans: With preapproval of permanent financing, this short-term loan covers the cost of custom home building. Once the home is built, we'll help you apply for a mortgage to pay for the completed home. A lot goes into building a new home, but we keep it simple.
- Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Loans: These government-backed loans are often ideal for first-time home buyers. Attractive qualities include low fixed rates, as little as 3.5% down payment requirement and less-stringent credit rating qualifications.
- U.S. Department of Agriculture Loans: These fixed-rate mortgages are for buyers who want to live in rural areas or certain suburbs. No down payment is required.
- VA Loans: Active duty military, reservists, veterans and their surviving spouses may be eligible for 100% financing with a low fixed rate and no private mortgage insurance requirement.
- North Dakota Housing Finance Agency Program: This program helps North Dakotans who need down payment or closing cost assistance. If borrowers qualify, they can get a fixed-rate loan for as little as $500 in out-of-pocket costs.
- Refinancing: Depending on your situation, refinancing your home loan may help you obtain a lower interest rate, reduce your monthly payment, or shorten the term of your home loan.
