Benefits of borrowing from Jovia

Easy Application

Our mobile-friendly application makes the pre-approval and mortgage application process a breeze...it can take less than 15 minutes! Apply, upload documents, keep track of the process or chat with one of our local mortgage advisors to get answers to your questions. Why wait when you can make that dream home yours?

Lower Costs

Jovia’s closing costs are low compared to other financial institutions on Long Island. And, with our no-closing cost options^ , you can avoid some of the usual costs altogether.

Smaller Down Payments

Buying a home is a big step, and even with a mortgage, you still have to come up with a lot of cash for closing...all while trying to cover the other costs of home buying like boxes and new furnishings! That’s why we allow homebuyers to put as little as 3% down on loans with our low down payment options. And with Jovia’s First-Time Homebuyers Program, affording your home can be even easier!

Reverse Mortgage Options∆

A reverse mortgage works by allowing homeowners age 62 and older to borrow from their home's equity without having to make monthly mortgage payments. The borrower may choose to take funds in a lump sum, line of credit or via structured monthly payments.
