We also make loan decisions locally, for added peace of mind. Having trust in those who serve you will make buying a home, a major life decision, as easy and stress-free as possible.
Visit our user-friendly mortgage website. Here, you can learn about your options, review different scenarios using our rate and payment calculators, and start your application. You can also determine how much house you can afford, learn the difference between fixed and variable rates, and how the length of your term can impact your payment amount.
If you’re a first-time buyer, take a virtual tour of the entire home buying process. It includes a handy checklist of what you need to get your mortgage started plus a guide to choosing just the right house.
Next will be a credit review with a KALSEE mortgage loan officer. You’ll see where you stand budget-wise and if you’re ready to buy a home. Depending on your situation, we can offer the next steps for securing a mortgage, tips for improving your credit or help with saving for a down payment. We can even preapprove you for the loan, so you’ll have more bargaining power when making an offer.
If you’re already in a home you love, we can help you to refinance and save. Rates are low and terms flexible, designed to either lower your monthly payment or shorten your term. We also offer special rates for cash-out refinances – enabling you to refinance for more than the amount you owe and take the difference in cash. This option is ideal for completing renovations around the house or paying off other bills.
Call 877.KAL.SEE1 to start your application or apply online on our mortgage website. Our advisors will be with you every step of the way to ensure the transaction goes smoothly. You’ll be in your new home quickly and affordably, with a mortgage that’s right for you!
