Buying or building a new home is exciting, and it’s one of the most important financial decisions you’ll ever make. But depending on your unique situation, there are many options to consider. A mortgage loan expert will work with you to find a loan that fits you best.


Conventional home loans

  • Fixed-rate conventional: Fixed-rate mortgages have a set interest rate for the entire length of the mortgage term, which can be between 10 and 30 years. The fixed-rate mortgage is the most common type of loan program. Because the interest rate remains constant for the life of the loan, your monthly payments for interest and principal never change. Property taxes and homeowners insurance may vary from year to year, but generally your monthly payments will be very stable.
  • Jumbo loans: A jumbo loan is a mortgage used to finance properties that are too expensive for a conventional conforming loan.


Specialty home loans

A variety of specialty mortgage loan products are available. Visit with a Union Bank home loan expert to learn more about these products.

  • Federal Housing Administration (FHA) mortgage: FHA mortgages are designed to help you purchase a home with a low down payment and less restrictive qualifying guidelines. These loans are insured by the FHA.
  • Nebraska Investment Finance Authority (NIFA) loans: This program provides funding for mortgages made to homebuyers — typically first-timers — who need assistance with a down payment (with certain exceptions) throughout the state of Nebraska and meet established income and purchase price limits.
