 "Electronic mail is not secure, and confidential or personal information should not be communicated in this manner"

     Our experienced loan officers are always happy to explain all the loan options available. The same person will take the loan application, keep you informed during the process and close the loan. Best of all, the same loan officer will be here to answer any questions you may have long after you have moved into your home.

     Select a mortgage loan to fit your financial situation. Before you apply for your mortgage loan, you will need to decide which type of loan may be right for you.

· Adjustable-Rate Mortgages (ARM) help you get the most home for your money. If you would like to qualify for the highest loan amount or pay off the loan early in the term, an ARM has many benefits. We'll let you know how much and how often the rate can be adjusted over the life of the loan. Rate caps protect you from large rate and payment increases. We offer adjustable rate mortgages where the interest rate and monthly payment may adjust up or down every 1 year, 3/1 years, or every 5/1 years.

· Fixed-Rate Mortgages allow you to make a fixed monthly payment over the life of your loan. It's easier to budget for this type of loan because you have the peace of mind, knowing your payment will never increase. This makes it easier for you to budget and plan for future investments. We offer 15 and 30 year fixed rate mortgages. The rate on a fixed rate loan is usually higher than the rate on an adjustable rate loan.

· Construction Loans - If you plan to build your dream home, a Citizens Federal construction/permanent adjustable rate loan is what you need. The first 12 months the payment is interest only on funds disbursed, then you start your regular monthly payment.
During the 12 month construction period, once the project is complete, you have the option of refinancing to a discounted fixed rate mortgage.

Call one of our loan experts today for complete details on our construction loans before you make your construction plans. 

· Is Refinancing Right for You? Generally, it's a good idea for you to consider refinancing whenever the interest rate for mortgages is more than one-percentage point below your present mortgage. Whether you apply with us for a new mortgage to buy the home you want, or to refinance your present mortgage, ask about a Homeowner's Equity Line. It can help you save on fees when you apply, interest when you want to borrow money, and on taxes at the end of the year. For more details, contact one of our mortgage loan officers at 937-593-0015 or email us today.

· Additionally, Citizens Federal offers other types of Mortgage Loan products, such as:
Investor Loans, Home Improvement Loans, Fixed & Adjustable, Home Equity Lines of Credit, Secondary Vacation homes, and Condominium Loans.

See our Mortgage Loan Rates for the latest interest rates and APR's.

 Save On Interest And Taxes

With A Citizens Federal Home Equity Loan

If you are a homeowner, a home equity loan is a smart way to borrow. You save money because interest rates are generally much lower than on credit cards and other consumer loans. Interest paid on a home equity loan is generally tax deductible (CHECK WITH YOUR TAX ADVISOR).

Citizens Federal offers home equity loans up to 80%, of your home's appraised value. Interest rates and terms vary. All our equity loans enable you to use your home to finance home improvement, debt consolidation, college tuition or even a dream vacation. 

Citizens Federal's Fixed Rate & Variable Rate Home Equity Line of Credit is a revolving line of credit that allows you to draw funds as you need them. The funds again become available for you to borrow as you pay down your outstanding balance. Once the account is opened, you can use it just like your checking account. You will receive a checkbook which allows convenient access to your line of credit.
Each month, you will receive a statement showing the advances and payments you have made, the credit line still available, the interest charges incurred and the required monthly payment.
See our Home Equity Rates for our low Home Equity line of credit interest rates.

You can also call one of our loan officers about our low rates or with questions at 937-593-0015 or e-mail us today.
