Financing To Get You Into Your Dream Home

Purchasing a home is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make. You will spend a lot of time focusing on what features are going to be important in your new home, but you should also spend a lot of time focusing on what you are looking for in a lender. Austin Bank can service your lending needs throughout the entire process, from pre-approval to closing. Stop into your local office to speak with one of our mortgage lenders about your home loan needs. You can also download the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s home loan toolkit to better prepare yourself for your application process.

Home Loans We Offer

Loan TypeWhat You Should Know
Fixed-Rate MortgageThis is a loan for those who want to make a consistent payment each month and plan to own their home for more than 10 years. Your rate stays the same throughout the term of the mortgage.
Adjustable-Rate MortgageThe rate for this loan is fixed for an initial period and then is subject to change. Adjustable rate mortgages offer flexibility to borrowers and are ideal for those who plan to own their home less than 10 years.
VA MortgagesVA mortgages are offered through the Department of Veteran Affairs for veterans and their immediate family or survivor spouses. Benefits of VA mortgages include reduced down payment requirements and no mortgage insurance requirements.
First Time Homebuyers LoanThese loans are designed to help homebuyers overcome some of the barriers to home ownership. First time homebuyer loans typically have lower down payment requirements and fixed interest rates.
Construction LoansBuild your dream home the way you want. Construction loans give you the ability to pay for costs associated with building your new home, including purchasing materials.
Home Loan RefinancingIf interest rates are lower than when you first applied for your mortgage loan, refinancing your loan can be a great option. Refinancing will reduce the amount of interest you pay on your loan, potentially saving you thousands of dollars over the lifetime of your loan.
Home Equity LoansUse your home’s built up equity to your advantage. Home equity loans are available as a lump sum loan that can be used to pay for a variety of items, including home renovations and debt consolidation.
