Conventional loans are those that are not associated with government programs, such as the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), but they offer great rates and friendly terms. More substantial down payments and solid credit are required. In some cases, you’ll need private mortgage insurance, which adds to the overall payments. However, the insurance can eventually be removed as you reach an 80% loan-to-value.
When rates are low, lock them in with a fixed-rate mortgage. Your payments stay the same for the loan’s entire term. This is a popular choice because of its predictability and consistency.
Home Equity Line of Credit
Offers great low rates and allows you to borrow what you need, when you need it, similar to a credit card. Variable interest rate that adjusts with Prime Rate. Ideal for home renovations, education expenses, supporting family, and emergency expenses.
Home Equity Loan
Receive funds in a lump sum with a fixed rate, and fixed monthly payments, utilizing the equity in your home. This loan is ideal for home renovations, car purchases, debt consolidation, or any other one-time purchase.
Helping build dreams from the ground up. Construction loans are short-term, interim loans used for new home construction. The lender pays the contractor – not the borrower – in installments as building milestones are achieved.
Adjustable-Rate Mortgages (ARM)
ARMs have a fixed period of time during which the initial interest rate remains constant, after which, the interest rate adjusts at a pre-arranged frequency. After the initial term, the loan resets, meaning there is a new interest rate based on current market rates.
- Lower Initial Interest Rates
- Adjustable Term Options Available
- Terms Up to 40 Years Available
We offer competitive financing for the purchase of cabins, vacation homes, and investment properties.
Used for the acquisition and renovation of a 1-4 family, owner-occupied property. This is a one-time closing loan that does not require refinancing after the property is complete. Our rehabilitation loan is an in-house loan without excessive terms and conditions.
Government Loan Programs
There are several government-backed loan programs for borrowers. Talk to a mortgage officer to see if one of these is right for you.
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) offers a smaller down payment option of only 3.5% along with higher allowances for other debt and credit scores as low as 620. Fun Fact: Over 80% of FHA loans are first-time buyers.
For first-time homebuyers with a Loan to Value (LTV) greater than 95%, these loan products, from both Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac may be the perfect solution. There are fixed and ARM terms available, as well as refinance opportunities.
For qualifying homes in rural areas, with borrowers under the low to moderate income limits that need 100% financing, this may be a great product to become a homeowner.
Another recommended option for borrowers that may have limited cash for a down payment, but have a higher credit score and fall under income limits, are HomeReady loans. Borrowers will notice competitive pricing and can be first-time or repeat homebuyers.
For those active service members, Veterans, and eligible surviving spouses who want to become homeowners and utilize up to 100% financing, a VA loan may be an ideal option. The US Department of Veteran Affairs provides a home loan guarantee benefit and other housing-related programs to help borrowers buy, build, or retain a home.
