Headquartered in Miami Lakes, Florida, BankUnited continues to exist despite Chapter 11 bankruptcy filed by its former holding company, BankUnited Financial Corporation, in 2008.
The seizure of the bank by FDIC and subsequent transfer to a new holding company, BankUnited, Inc., was regarded as one of the largest bank failures in recent time.
Founded in 1984, BankUnited emerged as a specialist in nonresident alien mortgages for foreigners wishing to buy Florida real estate. With a strong base in Florida, the bank has recently acquired Herald National Bank to expand into New York as well.
Today, the bank has more than 90 branches across the two states.
Applicants may find a range of borrowing options, including fixed-rate and adjustable-rate mortgages, FHA loans and first-time homebuyer programs. Just give a call at 1-866-635-0739 to get started.
