There are a variety of home loan options and programs available to you when you choose to finance through South Story Bank & Trust.

Our mortgage team will review all the options available to you, so you can make an informed decision on which home loan will work best for you.

  • Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Loan: Overcome some of the barriers to buying a home with affordable financing options and lower down payment, and income requirements while still receiving competitive rates.
  • Veteran Administration (VA Loans): This government-insured home buying program provides financing assistance, lower down payments, and lower monthly mortgage insurance premiums to eligible armed forces veterans.
  • Iowa Finance Authority: Learn more about the FirstHome and Homes for Iowans programs by visiting the Iowa Finance Authority website.
