Mortgage Product Choice Information

Community First Bank & Trust (CFBK) offers two basic types of mortgage products: Mortgage Loans extended by our Bank and Mortgage Loans originated by our Bank and sold to an investor. To best determine which product is right for you, ask yourself the following questions:

  • How much do you need to borrow?
  • How long do you want to borrow?
  • Are you interested in refinancing your loan in a few years?
  • Are you interested in a temporary "bridge" loan?
  • How much will your down payment be?
  • What kind of repayment plan do you desire?
  • What types of up-front costs are you willing to pay?
