Mortgages and Home Buying
Your dream house can be closer to reality with the right mortgage rates and home loan solutions. At First Commonwealth Bank, we want to help you with mortgages, so we offer team members who can explain the home financing process, mortgage refinancing and other solutions designed to meet your needs.
Fixed Rate Mortgages
If you want a mortgage amount that stays steady over time, our fixed-rate mortgages with competitive rates can be a great solution.
Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM)
Our ARMs save you money upfront with lower interest rates. The rates may change over time based on changes to the prime rate or the underlying interest rate index, but you can rest assured that most of our ARMs have limits on how much your interest rates can move.
First-Time Home Buyer Mortgages
Our First Time Home Buyer Programs and FHA loan options help make starting your home buying journey easier. We take most of the guesswork out of buying your first home because at First Commonwealth Bank we have resources to help first-time buyers find the right mortgage and make the best choices.
