Build Your Dream Home

It’s time to start making your dream home plans a reality. Whether your plans involve buying an existing home, building a new home from the ground up or renovating your current house, Minster Bank is here to bring your ideas to life. We are here to work with you to develop the best financial solution so you can get your dream home!

Conventional Fixed Rate Mortgage

Our fixed rate mortgages are a good idea for those who like to keep their monthly budgeting consistent. The monthly payments and interest rates will remain fixed through the term of the loan.

Adjustable Rate Mortgage

An adjustable rate mortgage is beneficial because the initial interest rate and payments are lower when compared to other mortgage loans. However, these rates will adjust periodically through the term of the loan depending on the market conditions.*

Federal Home Loan Bank indexes are used for adjustable rate mortgages. You can view the FHLB rates here.

Home Construction and Home Improvement Loan

If you’re looking to make improvements or an addition to your current home, a home improvement loan may be the solution you need. Home improvement loans are typically short-term and often converted to permanent financing at the end of the construction.**

During the construction, only interest payments are required.

Home Equity and Home Improvement Loan

Home equity and home improvement loans are based on the amount of equity in your home. Loans like these are typically ideal for borrowers who have a specific need and who wish to repay in regular monthly payments over an extended period.

Interest is generally tax deductible; however, we’d recommend speaking with a tax advisor for specific rules concerning tax deductibility.

Home Equity Line of Credit

A home equity line of credit is a flexible, revolving line of credit that allows you to borrow against the equity in your home in just the amounts that you need at the time you need it. Similar to a credit card, the available credit will be restored as you repay the balance.

Residential Lot Loan

Residential lot loans are specially designed for the purchase of a non-income producing residential lot. There are a variety of financing options available, such as fixed terms for stable monthly payments, to accommodate your needs.

Government Loans

If eligible, there are many types of government loans with benefits that include up to 100% financing and assistance for those with less than perfect credit.

Minster Bank has experience with the following programs:

  • Veterans Administration (VA) Mortgage Program.
  • Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Mortgage Program.
  • Rural Development Mortgage Program.

In addition to the loans and programs featured above, Minster Bank can also develop a unique financial solution tailored to your needs. We pride ourselves on listening to the needs of customers and helping them achieve their financial goals.
