Fixed-Rate Mortgage

The interest rate and payments on a  fixed-rate mortgage remain the same for the life of your loan. Salin Bank’s  fixed- rate mortgages are available with low down payment options and a variety of terms.

Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM)

An adjustable-rate mortgage has an interest rate that remains in effect for a specified period of time before adjusting annually. These mortgages typically offer lower initial rates and payments than fixed rate mortgages. Adjustable-rate mortgages provide rate adjustment caps and come in a variety of terms.

Construction/Perm Loans

This program offers the convenience of a one-time closing while providing funds for both the construction and permanent  financing of a new home. Depending on needs and qualifications, 95%  financing is available. Construction/Perm loans offer either attractive fixed rate or adjustable rate mortgages.

Home Buyer Plus Mortgage

This in-house program provides an ideal option for first- time home buyers. The program includes just 3.5% down, and no monthly mortgage insurance is required. (Income is limited to 80% of the area’s median income per county.)

Piggy Back Second Mortgages

Avoid paying costly mortgage insurance by splitting your loan in two. See a Salin home loan specialist for details.

Swing/Bridge Loans

A swing loan lets you span the gap between the sale of an old home and the purchase of a new one. By consolidating the mortgage debt on your current home and giving you access to the equity in that property, you can make a down payment on your new home. Your payments on your old home will be dramatically reduced interest-only payments, freeing up cash  flow to make your new home a reality.

FHA/VA/USDA Mortgages

Many government loans offer low down payment requirements as well as  flexible underwriting standards.

Down Payment Assistance

For those who qualify, down payment assistance is available through a special loan program offered through the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis. Income restrictions apply, and a home buyer education program must be completed.
