Looking to buy a home?

We’ve specialized in mortgage lending for nearly a century. We don’t just offer home loans. We offer the confidence, reliability, and peace of mind you need to buy the home of your dreams. Let Washington Federal help with all your home loan needs, today.

Looking to move? Don’t wait for your home to sell.

Washington Federal’s unique, cross-collateral loan allows you to borrow a portion of the value of your new home, depending on how much equity you have in your present home. You secure a fixed-rate loan covering both properties that you pay down once you sell your current home. You’ll qualify based on the projected payment for your new home only. This is an exclusive program available only at Washington Federal.  Ask your loan officer for a personalized scenario showing how a cross-collateral loan could specifically work for you.

We know buying a home is one of the biggest financial decisions you’ll ever make. That’s why it’s important to work with experts. Washington Federal has been making home loans since 1917.
