The Benefits of Going Local!

The Benefits of Going Local!


While looking for the right mortgage company to help you finance or refinance your home, the amount of options you have can quickly get overwhelming. When you include the options available online, it’s difficult to know where to start. There are plenty of mortgage companies that like to boast about their gimmicks, like 3-second mortgages or an interest rate far below the competition. Today, however, many consumers know to proceed with caution, especially in regard to what may be the biggest financial purchase they ever make.

You've probably heard horror stories about missed closings, hidden fees, and having your loan pushed off to someone you've never spoken to.

At First International Bank & Trust, we use a different approach. We strive for no surprise closings – we want our customers to know exactly what they're signing up for. In fact, over 95% of our customers indicated that information about their loan and the lending process was explained to them in clear, easy to understand terms.

Not only will your loan be financed by a long-standing bank with an excellent reputation, we now offer local servicing. What does that mean for you?

We won’t sell your loan to a third party investor*, so that means you can pay your mortgage where you do your banking. Our customers can have the peace of mind knowing that their mortgage will stay with the company that gave it to them.
