Already a Home Owner?
You can save money by refinancing with First Alliance! You can refinance your current mortgage loan at a different rate, a different term, or a combination of both.

  • Refinance to a lower term - save money by paying off your mortgage faster and paying less total interest
  • Refinance to a fixed rate - if you have a variable rate mortgage, now is the time to refinance and lock in at a historically low rate
  • Refinance to a lower rate - refinancing to the current low rates could lower your monthly payment and help you save for a rainy day or major purchase

Important information to help you through the mortgage process:

Getting started by getting Pre-Qualified!
Before you even start shopping for a home, you will need to get prequalified for the loan. Sellers will know you’re a serious buyer, and you will know that your financing is already lined up. Complete our Pre-Qualification Application online to get started, that’s the “I THINK I’m Ready” button above.  Or just click here!

Avoiding Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)
Conventional mortgages generally require a 20% down payment. Typically, if you don’t put down at least 20% you will have to pay PMI, which can be up to several hundred dollars a month added to your mortgage payment. By utilizing a combination of the products offered here it is possible to avoid any Private Mortgage Insurance. Of course, we will help you determine your best options!

Using Gift Funds for Your Down Payment
If you plan to use gift funds (wedding presents, monetary gifts from your parents, etc.) there are often special rules that apply. When you talk with us, please let us know if you plan to us any gift money to buy your home.
