One of life's biggest thrills is buying your own home. It is also the largest purchase most people will ever make. Whether you are a first-time home buyer, relocating to the Wisconsin/North East Illinois area, or building a new home, Southport Bank can help make your dream of home ownership a reality. We promise you the friendly, personalized service you want and need when choosing the home loan option that is best for you.
The majority of home loans are generally fixed rate loans. The advantages are simple: you have the stability and peace-of-mind of knowing that your principal and interest payments will not change over the life of the loan. You are then able to plan your monthly household budget around an unchanging mortgage payment. We offer a variety of rates and terms to meet our customer's borrowing needs.
Balloon loans provide a fixed rate for a short period, and then may be renewed at the current market rate for another balloon term or refinanced into a Fixed Rate Loan product (see above).
Building your new home can be a lot of work, but the financing of it doesn’t have to be. Southport Bank has a construction loan that will convert to a fixed loan after the construction is completed. No need to do new financing after the home is done; you only have to worry about moving in!
If you are using the equity in your current home as part of the down payment, we can provide a “bridge loan” to use as the down payment on your construction project. The bridge loan is paid off with the proceeds when you sell your current home. Any mortgage against your present home will be paid off and rolled into a note, including the balance due, the collateral amount and nine months of interest. Therefore, no payments are required for the term of construction. This can also be used on a purchase of a new home.
Use the equity in your home to purchase a car, go on vacation, or refinance to a lower rate with Southport Bank Home Equity Loans. These loans are based on the available equity which is the difference of the current value less what you owe on a first mortgage, and can also be done when getting your first mortgage with Southport Bank. Whether you are looking for a fixed rate home equity loan or a revolving line of credit, Southport Bank can fit you into one of our great home equity loan products.
