Buy a Home in Chicago

If you are looking to buy a home in the Chicago area or elsewhere in Illinois, you are going to be shopping not only for a home, but for a home loan as well.

The right mortgage can make a difference in how affordable it is to own a home now and over the lifetime of your loan.

MidAmerica Bancorp, Inc. can help you open the door to homeownership by connecting you with a home loan that is suited to your needs.

Find the Ideal Type of Home Loan in Illinois

We can help you apply for the following types of mortgages in Illinois, Indiana, or Florida:


A conventional mortgage is one that is not backed by a government agency. Most borrowers who ask about conventional loans are looking for conventional conforming loans. These mortgages fall within the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loan limits, and may feature interest rates as low as 3%.

Some properties in Illinois require additional financing beyond what a conventional conforming mortgage allows. For the purchase of these properties, we can connect you with a jumbo loan.

FHA mortgages are guaranteed by the Federal Housing Administration, and are a favorite among first time and repeat home buyers alike.

If you are a veteran, active-duty service member, or eligible surviving spouse, you may have the opportunity to purchase a home with zero down using a VA loan. This type of mortgage, guaranteed by the Department of Veterans Affairs, offers flexible credit qualifications, competitive interest rates, and no PMI.

ITIN Loans

If you are buying a home as an undocumented immigrant, you can apply for an ITIN loan. With this type of loan, you do not need a social security card to qualify, just an ITIN card.
