Heroes Don’t Always Wear Capes
First responders – professional and volunteer — have made it their business to help others. To show our gratitude, we provide a substantial discount on our fees to originate a new home purchase mortgage… or refinance an existing loan.
There are no restrictions regarding the type of loan (e.g., FHA, VA, conforming, jumbo, etc.) and interest structure (e.g., fixed-rate or adjustable-rate mortgage – ARM) you apply for.
Save on Closing Costs
Closing costs generally account for 2% to 5% of your total home loan. For example: if you took out a $400,000 loan, expect to pay anywhere between $8,000 – $20,000 at closing. With our Heroes Program, you’ll receive a $1,000 discount.
- Credit reports (pulled from the three bureaus Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion)

- W-2s, pay stubs, or other proof of income
- Bank statements (e.g., brokerage accounts and IRAs, etc.)
- Renting history (especially if you don’t have an extensive credit history)
- Police Officers
- EMT Personnel
The list isn’t extensive—call to find out if you qualify.

Pair with Other Programs
A pre-approval makes the house-hunting process simpler for you. Show sellers and real estate agents you’re approved for mortgage financing. That way, it doesn’t matter if another bid is higher; yours will be legitimate.
For any number of reasons, you may refinance your Ark loan. With our Lifetime Guarantee, you pay lender fees and appraisals only once per property, no matter how many times you refinance.
