Home Loans and Residential Mortgages in Pennsylvania
Mortgages Made Simple
Whether you are a first-time home buyer or moving into a new home, working with the right mortgage lender can make the process seamless, efficient, and simple.
We do everything we can to make the process of getting Pennsylvania mortgages as simple as possible.
Begin the process by applying online and check the status of your application using our easy online system at any time.
As a leading mortgage lender, Columbia Bank and their mortgage experts will help you find the perfect loan to fit your short-term and long-term needs, subject to credit approval. These include:
Fixed-rate mortgages. With a fixed rate mortgage, you pay the same interest rate for the life of the loan. A fixed rate loan is ideal for when you plan to live in your home for a long time or you want the security of predictable monthly payments.
Adjustable rate mortgages (ARM.) An Adjustable Rate Mortgage offers competitively low interest rates for a fixed term. If you don’t plan on living in the home for a long time, an ARM might be the best option for your needs.
As you explore your options, it is also time to find out how much you can afford. Ideally, you should have at least 15-20 percent of the home price available for a down payment, but there are loan programs for buyers who don’t have a substantial down payment.
As you begin looking for your perfect Pennsylvania home, we have a simple 24 hour pre-approval process to help simplify your loan processing and allow you to make more competitive offers. Columbia Bank also offers a 60-day rate lock guarantee, so you don’t need to worry about interest rate increases after you have found your dream home.*
Our trained team of mortgage experts will get to work finding the right mortgage product for your needs and walk you through the approval process. Speed up the process by providing all requested information and documentation on time. Once we have all of your information and you’re approved for the loan, we can usually have a closing date for you quickly.
Columbia Bank is registered with the National Mortgage Licensing System and Registry as required by the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008 (Safe Act).
Congratulations! You have made an offer and it's time to begin closing on your loan! At Columbia Bank, we make the process fast & easy, so you can focus on moving into your new home sooner.
