Perfect for: Homeowners who want to make cosmetic changes to their home or need to make necessary home repairs.
New Construction Loans
Benefits: Interest rates are locked throughout the life of your loan, protecting you against rate increases, and you may be eligible for closing cost credits that could reduce or eliminate refinancing costs.
