Your Dream Home. And Its Many
Windows Of Opportunity.
From the time you hammered together a treehouse or built a blanket-tent in your living room, you’ve dreamed of closing the door on a place that was truly yours. Merchants Bank offers more ways to get in the door of your perfect home from where you are right now in your life. Whether you are buying a house, want to downsize for more freedom, or add-on for more room, we have the home loan and mortgage lending products that fits your budget and your vision. We can even help you turn your home into a window of opportunity to make improvements, fund college or consolidate debt.
Local Mortgage Lenders Who Answer To You
Our mortgage products come with more than competitive rates and terms. They come with the big advantage of a local mortgage lender. Your hometown lender has the power to make sure your loan is the right fit and the knowledge to make you at ease through the entire process. Once you move in there’s no need to move on to a new bank. You can refinance, capitalize on your equity or build your lake house with the lender you’ve built a great relationship with.
