Multi-Family Financing

First National’s experts offer all the assistance you’ll need

Life as a multi-family property owner features a lot more responsibility than driving by the building once in a while and checking the mailbox for rent checks. Tenants must remain happy, especially when pipes leak or the furnace is on the fritz.

First National Loan Officer Mike Scott understands that owning a multi-family property is almost no different than running a small business. The properties are your assets and the tenants your customers. Experts like Scott know what it takes to keep your business running smoothly. That’s why First National is the first choice for financing among experienced multi-family property owners and developers.

Whether you’re looking to purchase or refinance, First National has you covered with several multi-family property loan programs. Whatever your needs, First National can tailor a loan that will certainly hit home for you and your financial plans.

Loan Options

From loans for purchase of a multi-family home to refinancing the property for equity extraction to use for improvements, First National offers a range of choices and terms tailored to meet your needs.
