Your questions answered
We generally need about 30 days to approve and close your loan. This could take a little more or less time, depending on your particular circumstances and also the loan program selected.
Rate locks are typically for a period of 45 days. The loan must close and fund within that window of time. Longer rate locks are available in some circumstances, but may carry an additional fee or a higher rate.
90 or 120 days, depending on the loan program. Monona Bank provides pre-approvals at no charge, and they can be easily updated if you don’t find the perfect house right away.
None of the loans we originate have a pre-payment penalty. This means you can make additional payments towards your principal balance at any time, which will reduce the amount of interest you pay over the life of the loan.
