Home ownership is one of the few investments you can enjoy while building equity and increasing your net worth.1

Tax Benefits

Mortgage interest, certain closing costs, mortgage insurance and property taxes may be tax deductible.2

Inflation Protection

Principal and interest payments can be fixed making payments more affordable.

Build Your Credit

Consistent payments show you are a responsible borrower.

Taking the simple step of speaking to a United Bank Mortgage professional may be the smartest financial decision you make, as it can allow your family to make monthly home payments toward your own asset instead of increasing your landlord’s wealth.
