Looking to buy a home?

Find out your options with First Israel today.

House & key pictureWhether you are making aliyah, looking for an investment, or buying a second home in Israel, First Israel’s mortgage consultants help you understand your options and work with you to construct financing that takes all variables into account.

When purchasing an existing property or constructing a new one, First Israel provides mortgage financing up to 75% of the value of the home.

Financing of up to 100% may be obtained for borrowers with equity in additional properties.

Two main hurdles

There are two main hurdles that you need to overcome in order to qualify for a mortgage:

  1. Enough cash to cover the required down payment. And…
  2. Enough income to cover the expected mortgage payments.

Both of these requirements are governed by Bank of Israel regulations and will be the same at all regulated banks.

Three categories

Regarding the down payment, a buyer will fall into one of three categories:

1) Israeli residents purchasing their only property.

2) Israeli residents who already own property (with no intention of selling the property in the near future).

3) Non-Israeli residents buying any property.
