FHA & VA Mortgages

Make your dreams of homeownership a reality

RBFCU and our affiliate company, Domain Mortgage, know that the homebuying process might seem overwhelming, especially for first-timers. If you're looking for a more affordable path to homeownership and navigating some of the traditional buyer's hurdles — like down payment requirements — our affiliate company, Domain Mortgage, has options to help you find the mortgage loan you need.

An FHA loan is a mortgage loan insured by the Federal Housing Administration. A VA loan is designed for military members, veterans and surviving spouses, and is guaranteed by the Veterans Affairs Department. These loans provide buyers, including first-time homebuyers, with additional lending options.
