Best Options

Conventional Fixed-Rate Mortgages

Conventional fixed mortgages have a set interest rate for the life of the loan, which can be five to 30 years. They also allow you to lock in a low interest rate with as little as 3% down payment.

Adjustable Rate Mortgage

An adjustable rate mortgage starts you off with lower payments and may adjust to a new rate (higher or lower depending on the financial index) after a specified term.

VA Loans

The Veterans Affairs (VA) loan is for active-duty service members, veterans and their family members who have earned the benefits and savings of a home loan with fewer restrictions, lower payments and no down payment.

FHA Loans

FHA loans require a lower down payment (as little as 3.5%) and are easier to qualify for than a conventional mortgage, good for first-time homebuyers with a lower qualifying income, low credit scores or a lack of credit history.

USDA Loans

USDA loans are ideal for first-time homebuyers concerned with funding and qualifying income because they require no money down and offer 100% financing to qualified buyers. Ask your mortgage banker about this special loan.
