Mortgage Services

Home mortgages are one of United Bank’s specialties. The team in our Mortgage Division are experts on all aspects of home financing, including new purchases, refinancing, second mortgages and home improvement loans. To top it off, we service most of our mortgage loans locally, which means you’ll make your payments at United Bank locations(Opens in a new Window) or through our mobile app, not by sending your mortgage payments across the country.
