ICBA and FCB&T Provide Tips for First-Time Homebuyers

Community bankers serve as an excellent resource for consumers looking to purchase a home and plan for a mortgage

With the summer real estate season upon us, many Americans are considering purchasing a home over the next few months. The total mortgage originations market is estimated to be around $1 trillion in 2014. With that in mind, the Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) and First Community Bank and Trust are on hand to help homebuyers navigate the mortgage process.

“Buying a home is likely the biggest purchase anyone will make, and community bankers are an excellent resource to help guide consumers through the process,” said John Buhrmaster, ICBA chairman and president and CEO of 1st National Bank of Scotia, N.Y. “With new mortgage rules and regulations in place, community bankers are available to help potential homebuyers by providing accurate and well-informed information. Community bankers across the country can help their neighbors in their local community find mortgages that fit their financial needs, budgets and lifestyles.”

Happy Father's Day!

Giveaway on Friday, June 13th and Saturday, June 14th, 2014 (both locations)

In celebration of Father's Day we will be giving out free Pizza Cutters. These cutters are easy to use and easy to clean. A perfect combination. And since they are plastic, they don't have the tendency to dent your pizza pans either!

So be sure to send dad into the bank on June 13th and June 14th for his pizza cutter.
