Conventional Fixed Rate Mortgages (FRM)
A popular loan type, conventional fixed rate loans feature a constant interest rate for the life of the loan. Generally speaking, monthly payments remain constant. Traditionally borrowers are expected to provide a 20 percent down payment though this is not necessarily required. We currently offer loans as high as 97% Loan-to-Value with No Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). Contact us for details on down payment requirements.
Available terms generally range from 10 years, 15 years, 30 years and 40 years.
Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM)
Adjustable rate mortgages are loans where the interest rate is recalculated on a yearly basis depending on market values. As interest rates are adjusted so is the borrower's monthly payment. While interest rates on ARM loans are generally lower than fixed rate loans initially they can eventually become higher over time with adjustments.
Various types of ARM loans include Hybrid ARMs such as 10/1 year, 7/1 year, 5/1 year and 3/1 year programs. Contact us for more information on adjustable rate mortgage loans.
Refinance Mortgage Loans
Homeowners looking to decrease their interest rate to obtain a lower monthly mortgage payment may consider refinancing. A refinance calls for the homeowner to obtain another mortgage loan. Those funds are then used to pay off the original mortgage loan and the homeowner is then bound by the terms of the new mortgage. Depending on your situation,a refinance loan could be a great option for an existing primary residence, second home, or even an investment property.
Along with decreasing your interest rate, refinance loans can also help you switch from an ARM to a FRM, and in some cases reduce your loan term. Depending on the value of your home,Cash Out may also be available.
If you are considering refinancing a property,please call us today to review the financial options for your particular scenario.
FHA Mortgage Loans
FHA loans are private loans insured by the Federal Government. These loans are popular with borrowers who don't have enough funds to pay a traditional 20 percent down payment because they only require 3 percent down to qualify. Those who choose these loans are required to pay mortgage insurance which slightly increases their monthly payments. FHA loans present a more flexible financial tool as compared to conventional loans with regard to general qualification and a higher available loan-to-value.
Lenders who wish to offer these loans must be approved by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Please contact us today to find out if a FHA loan is right for you.
