Online Mortgage Application
Fixed-Rate mortgages provide a predictable, set interest rate and payment that stays constant over the life of the loan. Our fixed-rate mortgages can be used to purchase or refinance your primary or vacation home, or for one-to-four-family investment properties.
A fixed-rate loan makes it easy to fit your mortgage payment into your monthly budget since the amount never changes. You can also lock in historically low interest rates before they rise again.

Adjustable-Rate Mortgages (ARMs)
ARMs generally have an initial, fixed-rate period. At the end of that time, your interest rate increases or decreases, depending on the specific terms of your mortgage. ARMs can be used to purchase or refinance your primary or vacation home, or for one-to-four-family investment properties.
ARM loans may be desirable for homebuyers who only plan to stay in their “starter house” for a few years. They can also be refinanced into a fixed-rate or new ARM.

First-Time Home Buyer & Affordable Housing Programs
FHA loans and affordable housing programs are mortgages with low and no down-payment options to help first-time home buyers and low-to-moderate-income borrowers purchase a home. Call us or stop by your nearest branch in northern Vermont or northern New Hampshire to find out if you’re eligible for a first-time home buyer or affordable housing program.
Union Bank’s partnerships with FHA, VA, USDA Rural Development (RD), Vermont Housing Finance Agency (VHFA) and New Hampshire Housing Finance Agency (NHHFA) allow us to finance and promote affordable, safe and decent housing opportunities for qualifying borrowers with limited down payment resources and/or low-and-moderate-incomes.
