Are you ready to start saving for a home? The NestFund is just for you!
NestFund is a variable rate certificate of deposit that allows you to add to your balance throughout the term. Along with helping you save for a down payment on your first home, NestFund brings you exclusive features to help you boost your savings.
- NestFund has a low minimum balance of only $100 so it's easy to get started!
- The rate of the certificate varies based on the Detroit area housing market. When home values go up, so will your interest rate, giving you the opportunity to earn even more. (Based on S&P/Case Shiller Detroit Index)*
- When you open the account, you will set up an automatic transfer from your checking or savings account of at least $20 per week. That way, you know your savings will grow - that's over $1,000 each year! You can choose to set up a higher amount to transfer each week, or make deposits when you have extra cash.
- It's easy to add to your NestFund - make deposits in a branch or transfer money using Online Banking. Even your parents, friends & family can help you save with online transfers or in a branch.
- Ready to buy your home? When you finance your home through Mortgage Center, Christian Financial will match the interest you've earned! Plus, we will waive the penalty fee for an early withdrawal.
