Interest Rates

One of the benefits of a NIFA loan is our competitively priced interest rate options.  All of our first mortgage loan interest rates are fixed with a 30-year term and do not have an origination or discount fee.  Our HBA Program second mortgage loan interest rate is fixed with a 10-year term.
