Types of Loans

Conventional Mortgage
The most comon type of mortgage loan for financing or refinancing one-to-four family residential property with a fixed interest rate for terms of 10-30 years.  Financing can be used for primary residence, second/vacation home or rental property.

Thirty-Year Fixed Rate Mortgage
The traditional 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has a constant interest rate and monthly payments that never change. This may be a good choice if you plan to stay in your home for seven years or longer. If you plan to move within seven years, then adjustable-rate loans are usually cheaper. As a rule of thumb, it may be harder to qualify for fixed-rate loans than for adjustable rate loans. When interest rates are low, fixed-rate loans are generally not that much more expensive than adjustable-rate mortgages and may be a better deal in the long run, because you can lock in the rate for the life of your loan.

Fifteen-Year Fixed Rate Mortgage
This loan is fully amortized over a 15-year period and features constant monthly payments. It offers all the advantages of the 30-year loan, plus a lower interest rate—and you'll own your home twice as fast. The disadvantage is that, with a 15-year loan, you commit to a higher monthly payment. Many borrowers opt for a 30-year fixed-rate loan and voluntarily make larger payments that will pay off their loan in 15 years. This approach is often safer than committing to a higher monthly payment, since the difference in interest rates isn't that great.

Not just for first-time home buyers, this loan is also designed to assist borrowers who may have slight credit problems but have the ability to provide a minimum cash down payment of 3.5% of the contract sales price.  Improvements in FHA loans provide easier qualifications, less out-of-pocket expenses and increased loan limits.  Borrowers also have the ability to accept monetary gifts from family members. 

Rural Development
Can assist anyone residing in a designated rural community.  It can provide low mortgage rates for families with a moderate income range and/or those with limited credit history, renters or first-time homebuyers when certain requirements are met.

VA (Veterans Administration)
