Several types of mortgage loan products are available and listed below. Once you review the types, ask us for more details, so we can determine which type of program would be the best option for you.
FIXED MORTGAGE RATE
A mortgage in which the interest rate is fixed for the term of the loan. Terms include 30, 20, 15 or 10 years.
Conventional loans are not insured by any government program, and they are the most common type of mortgage. Conforming conventional loans follow the loan amount guidelines set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Nonconforming loans don’t meet those guidelines, but are still considered conventional. Conventional loans often have higher down payment requirements than government-sponsored loans like FHA and USDA.
HYBRID ADJUSTED RATE MORTGAGE
A mortgage in which the interest rate is fixed for a predetermined period of time, like three, five, seven or 10 years. After the predetermined period of time, the loan converts to an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) for the remaining term of the loan.
A loan insured by the Federal Housing Administration open to all qualified home purchasers. While there are limits to the size of FHA loans, they are generous enough to handle moderately-priced homes almost anywhere in the country. FHA loans offer a low down payment and more flexibility than many other types of financing.
A Reverse Mortgage is a type of home equity loan that allows homeowners to convert some of their equity in your home into cash while retaining home ownership. Reverse Mortgages are backed by the government and FHA.
Jumbo loans are available up to $900,000 with no adjustment to rate, but can go up to $2 million. Available for refinances or purchases, mortgage insurance is not required.
