Home Loans and Mortgages from RTN
Buying or refinancing a home is one of the most important financial decisions you’ll make. At RTN, we work with you every step of the way to make sure you get the credit union mortgage product or home loan that best suits your needs. Whether you’re purchasing a home, refinancing your mortgage or tapping into the equity in your home to pay for a major purchase, we can help you.
RTN home loans and mortgages are available for one- to four-family, owner-occupied properties. Home loans with less than 20% equity require Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). The rate can be locked in for up to 120 days, and the mortgage application has an origination fee of $250. Our mortgage professionals will provide you with details as to when the application, appraisal and credit report fees should be paid.
If you are looking to purchase or refinance a home in New England, we offer:
- Mortgages: Fixed Rates and Adjustable Rates
- First-Time Home Buyer programs
- Home Equity Loans and Home Improvement Loans (Fixed Rate)

Before you begin looking for a home, be sure to visit our Mortgage/Home Equity Loan Center for a mortgage pre-approval. Pre-approval allows you to negotiate from a position of strength, knowing in advance what you can borrow. You also will be able to determine whether there are any issues or factors (such as credit rating) that need to be addressed before filing a formal home loan application. Mortgage pre-approval is a fee-free service for our members and their families.
We do business in accordance with the S.A.F.E. Act and are registered with the NMLS (Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System & Registry). View our NMLS and verify our registration. RTN is an equal opportunity lender.
