FEATURED PRODUCT:
5-year Adjustable Rate Mortgage: 4.49% APR*

With rates on the rise, loan options such as adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs), are becoming more popular. While an ARM is not for all borrowers or scenarios, in a rising rate environment it can be an option to keep the interest portion of a mortgage payment more affordable in the near term.

First State Bank offers a wide range of financing options, so no matter your home loan needs, you can count on us to bring you home.

THE IMPORTANCE OF GETTING PREQUALIFIED

When you’re ready to start shopping for a home, your first step should be to get pre-qualified. Prequalification lets sellers know you’re serious about buying – and it lets you know what homes are within your range, so you can narrow their home search to properties that fit your budget.

Pre-qualification:

  • Shows sellers you’re serious

  • Allows you to determine what you’re comfortable paying

  • Limits search to homes that fit your price range

  • Confidently make an offer knowing you have been qualified by a reputable lender

  • Close faster
