10 & Done!
Our 10 & Done Mortgage Freedom Loan now gives you more options when buying or refinancing with a rate that beats our traditional 15, 20, and 30-year mortgage offerings.
The 10 & Done loan is perfect for those who have a low balance with their current mortgage and don’t want to pay higher costs by refinancing. It’s also great for those who are purchasing and want to be mortgage-free in 10 years while getting our lowest mortgage rate and no appraisal fee.
You can also free up some of your home’s equity and use that money however you wish. Just like traditional mortgages, the 10 & Done gives you the option of having an escrow account that makes paying your insurance and taxes automatic.

First-Time Home Buyer's Grant
We know buying your first home can be financially stressful, that's why we're here to help. When you're an eligible first-time home buyer with Ascentra, we give you $7,500 to put towards your down payment or closing costs*!
For reference, average Ascentra closing costs are between $2,000-$2,500. Meaning, you could have $5,000+ left over AFTER having paid all of your closing costs! That's just extra moolah that you could put towards your down payment or in your escrow account.
Contact one of our Mortgage Experts to get pre-approved with just two pay stubs!
