A popular loan type, conventional fixed rate mortgages feature a constant interest rate for the life of the life. Generally speaking, monthly payments remain constant. Traditionally borrowers are expected to provide a 20 percent down payment though this is not necessarily required, and can put down as little as 3%. Available terms generally range from 8-30 years. Contact us for details on down payment requirements.
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 they can eventually become higher. 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.
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 3.5 percent down to qualify. Please contact us today to find out if a FHA loan is right for you.

Homeowners looking to decrease their interest rate 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. 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.
Reverse mortgage loans, also known as reverse equity loans, are only available to homeowners 65 or older. Like its name indicates, this program pays the homeowner either a one-time large payout or monthly installment. Once the loan term expires the house either becomes the property of the lender or the house can be sold to repay the debt. Reverse mortgage loans are great options for seniors looking to increase their monthly incomes. Contact us for more details.
