Looking for mortgage or home refinancing options in Oneida County? This region of Central New York is situated west of Albany and the Capital Region and east of Syracuse, with the Adirondack Park to the northeast. Oneida Lake is on its western border and the Erie Canal runs through the county, as does the Mohawk River. In addition, part of the Tug Hill Plateau – infamous for its annual winter snowfall totals – lies in the northern part of the county.
Just as its geography is diverse, so too are its many communities which range from small, rural villages to the growing city of Utica, home to more than 62,000. Other popular areas include the city of Rome and the towns and villages of Boonville, Camden, New Hartford, Vernon, Whitesboro and Yorkville.
Where you wish to purchase a home within Oneida County will affect the types of mortgages available to you. While much of the county is eligible for USDA mortgages which includes benefits such as 100% home financing, there are certain areas, primarily around Utica and Rome that are not. You can check specific addresses on the USDA.gov site, and we also provide some additional information on eligibility below.
Maple Tree Funding has provided mortgage and home refinancing solutions to homeowners throughout New York State, including Oneida County, for over a decade. Our local knowledge and industry experience, as well as our ability to work with dozens of lenders, will help you put you in the home of your dreams, even if you’ve been turned down for a mortgage elsewhere. Unlike banks which can only work with the home loan programs they have available, we are able to reach out to multiple lenders, finding you the best mortgage or refinancing offer, based on your location and personal finances.
In addition to USDA mortgages, we offer other government sponsored home loans, such as FHA and VA, as well as fixed-rate and adjustable-rate loans. In addition, we can also offer bad credit mortgages and non-conforming home loans such as jumbo mortgages.
