Making

your way home.

Get Pre-Qualified

We’re by your side every step of the way.

When you’re ready to buy a home, First Hope Bank is here to help with the personal service, local knowledge, and guidance you need to move into the home of your dreams.

The benefits of pre-qualification

The real estate market remains competitive, and being pre-qualified for a mortgage can give you an edge over other buyers during the bidding process—it demonstrates to real estate agents and sellers that you can secure a mortgage and make a real offer right away. Plus, it’s easier to search for the right home when you already know how much home you can afford.

As a small, local bank with big bank capabilities, we offer homebuyers:

  • Competitive rates
  • Personal, one-on-one service every step of the way
  • The convenience of a neighborhood bank
  • Local knowledge and decision-making
  • A wide range of mortgage loan options

Choose the mortgage loan that’s right for your needs:

  • Fixed-Rate Loan
  • Adjustable Rate Mortgage
  • Jumbo Loan
  • FHA Loan
  • USDA Loan
  • Construction Loan
  • Reverse Mortgage (HECM)

Whether you’re buying your first home, have been through the process before, or want to build something all on your own, we’re your dedicated, experienced partner—and we’re part of your community.
