Purchase Refinance

Shop with confidence.  Contact us for a free pre-approval and you'll know the payment you can afford before you start home shopping.

Choose a Fixed Rate or an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) option.

  • Fixed Rate Loans offer the stability of a fixed payment amount throughout the term of the loan.
  • Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs) provide the ability to adjust the interest rate of the loan up or down with market rates.  The timing of the adjustment period is established at the time of the loan.  Caps are placed on adjustments to protect borrowers from extreme changes.

Refinancing offers opportunities to:

  • Lower your monthly payment and interest over the life of the loan
  • Consolidate multiple loans into one payment
  • Cash-out on the existing equity you've built
  • Increase or decrease the term of your loan to meet your financial goals

 

Home Equity Loans and Lines of Credit

If you are a homeowner today, you may choose to use the equity you've built in your home for additional financing.  Your home's equity is the difference between the market value of your home and your mortgage loan balance.  Because equity loans and lines of credit are secured by your home, the rates are often lower than other types of financing and the interest may be tax deductible.  Consult your tax advisor for more details.

*Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) lowest rate is Prime (3.25% Annual Percentage Rate (APR)) as of 2/1/13.  Lowest rate includes no closing costs with minimum line advance of $5,000.00 for line up to $100,000; $20,000.00 minimum line advance for lines >$100,000.00 and <=$250,000.00; and minimum line advance of $100,000.00 for lines greater than $250,000.00.  Annual fee is $50.00 and is waved with automatic monthly payment deduction from Citizens/Champaign Bank checking account.  The APR may vary based on The Wall Street Journal "Prime Rate" (Prime) as published on the first day of the month.  Minimum APR is 3.25% and maximum APR is 25.00%.  Rate and terms may change at any time and vary by property type, loan amount, credit history, loan-to-value ratio, and advance amount at closing.  Property insurance required and flood insurance may be required.  Important Consideration when managing Interest-Only Payments:  The interest rate on a home equity line of credit is variable; therefore, your monthly interest-only payment may change with market rates.  Your principal balance is only reduced when you make voluntary principal payments during the 15 year draw period of your home equity line of credit.  At maturity, any remaining account balance outstanding will be due in a single balloon payment.  At that time, the bank may, but is not obligated to, refinance the line of credit.  Subject to credit and property approval.
