Mortgage Loans

At Neighbors, we put people first…your unique needs and your unique life. Sure our mortgage loans offer low interest rates, but it’s about much more than that. It’s about what’s right for you now, and what’s best for you tomorrow. Neighbors is also not-for-profit, which gives us the freedom to do what's right for you.

With the various mortgage loan plans we have available, there's sure to be one that fits your needs:

  • 100% financing on single family residence (no condos)1
  • Fixed rate loans with terms of 10, 15, 20 and 30 years2
  • ARM loans available2
  • And much more

No matter which you choose, you can enjoy a fast quote online, low closing costs and a personalized consultation. Our rates are typically considerably lower than those offered by big banks and other lenders. Plus, the process is streamlined with a quick approval since the entire process—from application to closing—is handled at Neighbors, not outside underwriters.

1100% financing loan program is based on a maximum total combined loan amount of $400,000 and a minimum total combined loan amount of $100,000. The program is based on a 95% first mortgage and 5% second mortgage. The first and second mortgages may be Fixed or Adjustable Rate Mortgages. Minimum 720 FICO score required. Owner-occupied one unit single family residence only. Single-wide manufactured housing does not qualify. Mortgage insurance required. Escrow account for insurance and taxes required. Member must have $1,000 of their own funds towards transaction for closing costs or down payment. Loan origination and other fees may apply. For example, for a Fixed Mortgage with a purchase price of $125,000.00, if the $1,000.00 is used as a down payment and $124,000.00 is financed at 4.50% fixed interest rate, the monthly payment would be $628.29 for 360 months. Sample payments only include interest and principal. For Adjustable Rate Mortgages with a 0% down payment, the loan has a variable rate with the possibility for the interest rate and payment to increase or decrease as set forth in the example above. Member must have direct deposit into Neighbors Credit Union Checking or Savings Account before closing. Subject to appraisal and underwriting terms and conditions. Other restrictions may apply. Mortgages available in Missouri or Illinois only. Contact credit union for full details.

2Rates are fixed or variable, based on your final loan amount and finance charges. The actual interest rate and fees available to you will be based on your credit history, property type, loan to value, and may be different than the rates displayed here. Please contact a loan officer for current rates and fees. Rates are subject to change without notice. Additional rates and terms may be available. Mortgages available in Missouri and Illinois only. Available only on owner-occupied, one unit, single family primary residences. Membership eligibility required. Restrictions apply. Please call 314-892-5400, ext. 11095, for details on all products. Fixed Mortgages: Minimum down payment of 5% (or 3% for EZ-3 Mortgage) required. For example, a $125,000 purchase price with $3,750 (3%) down payment and $121,250 financed at 4.00% fixed interest rate would result in a monthly payment of $734.75 for 240 months. Sample payment only includes principle and interest. Adjustable-Rate Mortgages: Minimum down payment of 5% (or 3% for EZ-3 Mortgage) required. Variable-rate loans have the possibility for the interest rate and payment to increase or decrease. For example, the 5/1 ARM is an adjustable-rate mortgage amortized over a thirty (30) year period. For the first five (5) years the loan is fixed. Following the initial fifth (5th) year of the loan, the interest rate may adjust by two percent (2%) every one (1) year thereafter with a lifetime cap of no more than six percent (6%) over the initial note rate. Minimum loan amount of $50,000 required.

The interest rates used in the foregoing examples are based on current market rates, are for purposes of example only and are not meant to be relied upon. This is not a credit decision or a commitment to lend. Depending on loan guidelines, mortgage insurance may be required. If mortgage insurance is required, the mortgage insurance premium could increase the annual percentage rate (“APR”) and the monthly mortgage payment. APR reflects the effective cost of your loan on a yearly basis, taking into account such items as interest, most closing costs, mortgage insurance, discount points (also referred to as “points”) and loan-origination fees.
