Home Purchase

Knowing how much you can afford before you find a home may be the best thing you could do! Give us a call and schedule an appointment to meet with one of our Loan Processors at your convenience to discuss financing options based on your specific needs. With a better sense of what you can afford, looking for a new home will be that much easier.

If you’re in need of a pre-qualification letter to assure real estate brokers and sellers that you are a qualified buyer, we can help with that too. Having a pre-qualification letter for a mortgage may give more weight to any purchase offer you make.

When you find the perfect home and have your sales contract ready to go, you can simply start an application online through our convenient to use Mortgage Loan Center, or call your Loan Processor for an application package to get your loan request started.

Loan Refinance 

With so many financing options out there, comparing loan programs and deciding if it’s the right time to refinance your home loan can be overwhelming, but the potential advantages to refinancing may be too good to pass up! By refinancing your home loan with Lusitania Savings Bank you may lower your monthly payment, free up additional cash for you to use towards other financial goals and potentially save thousands of dollars over the life of your loan. Contact us and schedule an appointment to meet with one of our Loan Processors at your convenience to discuss loan refinancing options based on your specific needs.



Interest rates on fixed rate loans stay the same for the entire repayment term of the loan. This means the cost of borrowing money stays constant throughout the life of the loan and won't change with fluctuations in the market. 

One of the most popular fixed rate loan options is the 30 year fixed rate mortgage. Many homeowners choose the fixed rate option because it allows them to better plan and budget for their monthly payments.

This is especially helpful for consumers who have stable but tight finances, as it protects them against the possibility of rising interest rates that could otherwise increase the cost of their loan. 


An Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) loan is a home loan with an interest rate that adjusts periodically over the life of the loan. The initial fixed rate period is typically from 3 to 5 years. After the introductory rate term expires, the rate becomes a variable for the remaining life of the loan.

During the adjustable rate period, the estimated payment and rate may change, depending on the loan market.

ARM loans provide the lowest interest rate and monthly payments during the initial rate period. These loans are ideal for borrowers who plan to move or refinance within this initial period of time and can provide significant savings or added affordability.
