Fixed-rate loans are a great option if you want a monthly payment that won’t change. A fixed interest rate means your rate stays the same for the life of the loan – so your payment will only change if your taxes or insurance premiums do. Many of our clients opt for 30- or 15-year fixed-rate loans.
Adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) offer lower rates than some other loan types. ARMs are a great option if you expect to sell your house or refinance before the initial fixed-rate period ends. A popular ARM is the 5-year ARM, which is a 30-year mortgage with an initial fixed-rate period of five years.
An FHA loan is a government backed mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration. FHA home loans require lower minimum credit scores and down payments than many conventional loans, which makes them especially popular with first-time homebuyers. FHA loans come in 15-year and 30-year terms with fixed interest rates.
VA loans are government backed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and offer guarantees to private lenders to make it easier for borrowers to get an affordable loan. There are several types of VA loans, and we can help you navigate which is best for you. Benefits of a VA loan include $0 money down, less stringent credit criteria, and competitive interest rates.
