The Iowa City area is a great place to live and buy a home. With The University of Iowa here, there is a vibrant and diverse community with lots of job opportunities and a great education system. The thriving downtown area has seen growth and development continue at a rapid pace in recent years and the Corridor includes North Liberty and then Cedar Rapids with many great features and benefits in those growing communities as well.

We work with many first time home buyers and can even offer refinances or help finance your second home and beyond. We look for programs like the Mortgage Credit Certificate for those first time home buyers or streamline refinance options to get all of the best options available for our customers.

The Mortgage Credit Certificate allows those first time home buyers or Veterans to get 50% of the mortgage interest they pay each year, up to $2,000/year, as a tax credit for the life of their loans. This can save them thousands and thousands of dollars over the life of the loan.

If it’s mortgage expertise or knowledge of the Iowa City home loan types, RMN has it for you! We look forward to working with you on your next purchase or refinance.
