Home Equity Line of Credit
Your home is generally your largest single asset which, over time, appreciates in value. With a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) you can use the equity you've built into your home to pay for large expense items. Learn more about a Union State Bank Home Equity Line of Credit.
Second Mortgage including Purchase Money
A second mortgage can be used in place of PMI (private Mortgage Insurance). The interest for a second mortgage is usually tax deductible where PMI is not. In addition to accumulating equity faster, second mortgages can have a flexible payment date to break up the mortgage payment throughout the month. Contact us to learn more about a secondary mortgage.
Minimum credit score is 680. Use our free credit assessment tool to evaluate your credit status. Your credit is calculated as 'Good', 'Fair' or 'Needs Improvement'. A good credit assessment means you should be able to qualify, within the limits of your income, for most loans. You are also much more likely to receive the best interest rates available. If your credit is fair, you will probably not have trouble qualifying for a loan, but you may not receive the best available interest rate. If your credit rating needs improvement, you may have issues that could limit your ability to qualify for many loans.
Special Financing Programs - HUD, FHA, VA, Rural Housing, Fannie Mae
Union State Bank has access to many special financing programs through partnerships with third parties. These programs include:
- Fannie Mae /Home Ready

Jumbo loans are financing tools designed for properties that exceed conventional loan limits. The Federal Housing Finance Agency has set the conforming loan limit for most counties to be $726,200 for 2022. Mortgages over this amount may qualify for a jumbo loan.
- 15 and 30 year term options
- Max loan to value is 80%
- Minimum credit score 720
The first step in buying a house is determining your budget. The mortgage qualifier calculator steps you through the process of finding out how much you can borrow. You can calculate your mortgage qualification based on income, purchase price or total monthly payment.

Use this mortgage calculator to determine your monthly payment and generate an estimated amortization schedule. Quickly see how much interest you could pay and your estimated principal balances. Enter prepayment amounts to calculate their impact on your mortgage.
Determining which mortgage term is right for you can be a challenge. With a shorter 15 year mortgage, you will pay significantly less interest than a 30 year mortgage - but only if you can afford the higher monthly payment. Use the mortgage comparison calculator for a comparison of a 15 vs. 30 year mortgage.
