Fixed Rate Mortgages

Planning on staying in your home for more than five years? Then consider a fixed rate mortgage loan. Your monthly loan payment remains the same and any extra principal payments you make will reduce the life of your loan, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in interest.

Home Equity Loans & Lines of Credit

Looking for a great interest rate and a convenient way to finance home improvements, college tuition, a major purchase or to consolidate debt? Then consider a Home Equity Loan or Home Equity Line of Credit. We offer both fixed and variable rate plans. In most cases, we pay the closing costs and as an added benefit, the interest you pay may be tax deductible.*

Home Equity Loans

A Home Equity Loan from Institution for Savings features a fixed rate and fixed monthly payment as well as a variety of terms. Home Equity Loans are ideal for financing purchases requiring a large initial cash outlay.

Home Equity Lines of Credit

This is one of the most flexible loans we offer. For a ten year period you can borrow funds when you need them, for whatever purpose, simply by writing a check against a pre-determined credit limit.  During this time, subject to certain limits, your minimum monthly payments will be “interest only” based on your outstanding loan balance and any principal you repay can be re-borrowed at a later date.  For additional information, ask one of our loan officers for a copy of our Home Equity Line of Credit Plan Disclosure.

*Consult a tax professional for advice on interest deductibility.
