It is a great way to establish a line of credit for future unanticipated needs. For more information, contact one of our experienced mortgage lenders today!

Construction

We offer construction loans for an interest only basis during construction. There are minimal costs involved and we can qualify you for a permanent fixed-rate term mortgage at the time you apply for your construction loan.

We disburse funds right at the bank allowing for prompt service when you make draws on your loan during the construction process. Contact one of our experienced lenders today to start building on your dream home, or apply online!

Fixed Rate

Our bank is an approved seller and servicer for Freddie Mac loans. This allows us the advantage of being able to not only approve your loan request on a local basis, but also the ability to lock in a fixed rate for the term of the mortgage.

Another benefit we provide as an approved Freddie Mac seller and servicer is that we handle the servicing of your loan locally. Our policy has been to retain the servicing of your loan so that it is not sold to other lenders that you may not know.

Second Mortgage

First Citizens State Bank offers a variety of mortgage options to meet your credit needs and a second mortgage is a perfect example! Similar to a home equity line of credit, where the equity you have built in your home is utilized for collateral, but the terms are different based on the intended use of the proceeds. This option is perfect for lower amount one-time purchase requests, auto purchase, smaller home improvements projects, etc. Contact one of your mortgage professionals to see if this option works best for you.
