Government-Backed Loans

We offer several types of government-based loans, providing more flexible credit guidelines while still offering attractive rates.

  • FHA Loans: These loans are insured by the government. They have easier credit qualifying guidelines and lower down payment requirements. Your down payment can be a gift from a family member or can even be borrowed. (restrictions may apply). An FHA loan will likely offer the best rates if your credit score is on the lower end of the scale.
  • VA Loans: Financing available to eligible veterans and active-duty service members to help purchase properties with no down payment and no private mortgage insurance (PMI).
  • USDA: A loan for rural families and individuals with low and moderate-income, assisting in qualifying the borrower for mortgages even without a down payment.

Conventional Loans

Have good a good credit score and a steady income? Then this may be the best option for you. Conventional mortgages often offer lower closing costs and a variety of terms from 10, 15, 20, even 30-year fixed rates.

  • Who are conventional loans best for?
    A Conventional loan is often the best option for borrowers with strong credit who can contribute a down payment of at least 3%, or perhaps quite a bit more.

Which loan type is right for you? Let us take the confusion out of the loan selection and application process. Get in touch with us today!

In today’s housing market, getting pre-approved for a mortgage is necessary if you want to give yourself a competitive edge. Pre-approval shows sellers and realtors that you’re serious about buying a home. You will be required to provide proof of assets, income, employment, and debt. This process involves pulling your credit report and score to examine your credit history and identify issues.
