Twin 100 - TwinStar’s groundbreaking new mortgage program. The first of its kind, this program allows you to finance 100% of your mortgage. This is the best way to enter the home buying market with minimal costs since there are no down payments required. And unlike other programs, Twin 100 does not require you to purchase a home in a specific area or have any specific home ownership education certifications. This program is perfect for both the experienced or new home buyer. Learn more at TwinStarCU.com/Twin100.

Twin 97 - TwinStar offers a 3% down payment program that beats the competition. If you’re considering purchasing a home — especially if you’re a first-time homebuyer — you might be feeling a little overwhelmed with the up-front costs. Which is why TwinStar has created a special home loan program to ease the burden, with lower down payments and fewer restrictions on new borrowers. For full program details, see TwinStarCU.com/Twin97.
