The purchase of a new home is one of the largest investments a person will make during his/her lifetime.  It can be an exciting process, one that provides an opportunity to establish roots in a community and which provides a place to call your own.  At the same time, the homebuying process can become difficult to navigate and very overwhelming.


For those purchasers ready to embark on this journey, it is important to ensure that you are working from a financially secure position. Avoiding costly mistakes, requires that a purchaser has access to proper information, tools and knowledge.  Thanks to Suffolk Federal, new financing guidance is now available.

Spencer, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Suffolk Federal.
