A mortgage loan is money given to you by a financial institution to buy a house. It requires a contractual agreement that you’ll pay back the loan with interest in specified monthly payments over a stated period of time. You can choose your payment term-the longer the term, the lower the monthly payment, but you’ll pay more in total interest.
Any one of our Personal Bankers will be happy to answer any of your questions, help you select the best financing for your needs, prepare estimates of your closing costs and down payment, calculate payment schedules, and help you determine what price of a home you can afford.
Generally, lenders want your monthly payment, including taxes and insurance, to be 25-30% of your gross monthly income. Your Personal Banker can help you determine what price of a home to shop for by reviewing your income, debts and credit. You can also apply for a pre-approval where the lender approves the loan before you find a new home. Pre-approval makes your offer more attractive to a seller.
When you locate a home, contact one of our Personal Bankers who will assist you in filling out a loan application. The following pieces of information are needed for your loan application.
After you have applied for a loan, the information you have supplied will be verified and a credit report on you will be completed. An appraisal will be performed on the home you are purchasing to determine its market value. When all the information is collected, it will be reviewed for loan approval.
Closing costs are up-front fees you pay the lender when taking out a mortgage loan. These may include points. Points are a one-time charge you pay the lender to buy a lower interest rate than the current one. Each point equals 1% of the amount you are borrowing (i.e., if you borrow $90,000, one point costs you $900. Be sure to ask how many points you’ll be charged because you must pay them at closing.
Actual rate you pay during the life of the loan, including interest, points and certain closing costs.

You should always have the most updated version of your browser installed on your computer. The browser you are using can affect your overall web experience as well as the safety of your device and your personal information.
As device manufacturers release new browser versions, they stop supporting and fixing old browsers. You may wonder, “Why on earth would they stop supporting the browser I still have on my device?” This is done to improve the overall user experience.
As technology improves, companies often rebuild their browsers from the ground up. The old browsers simply don’t have the capabilities to support the new features and standards. Older versions might also utilize poor or outdated coding that is vulnerable to security hackers and cyber criminals.
So instead of forcing you to buy a new device, manufacturers provide free software updates to your existing devices. Most of the latest devices update certain software programs automatically. However, many of the older devices out there aren’t yet set up to make automatic updates. Although the company may have released an updated browser version, you may still be using an older version.
Just as with updating your browser, one of the main reasons to updating your operating system is to have the latest level of security. Older software will continue to have the same bugs and exploitable holes in the code that allow hackers and cyber criminals to get access.
As of May 7th, 2018, the company who hosts our online banking platform, Fiserv, discontinued Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1 due to security implications. Most of the browsers and operating systems auto-converted to the necessary version of TLS for increased security, but some of the older systems including Windows 7, Microsoft Vista and Microsoft 2008 are too outdated to convert.
