FHA Loans

The FHA loan program is an outstanding choice for first time homebuyers because the program requires only 3.5% cash (which may be a gift) into the transaction and is significantly more forgiving of past credit issues. We will look specifically at the last two years of your credit history. If there are some credit problems, we may be able to overcome them with sufficient explanations and supporting documents of why the issues occurred. Never rule yourself out of qualifying for FHA loan because of credit, prequalify and have us review your credit.

Term: 30 years Maximum Amount: $294,515

If you currently have an FHA loan and are considering refinancing to lower your monthly housing cost there is a simple low cost " FHA streamline" refinance process which you should consider. One of the important features of the FHA program is that the loan is assumable should you sell in the future. If interest rates rise, an assumable mortgage may be the difference between being able to sell your home or not. Please call for more details.

FHA Streamline 203 (K) Loan

HUD has developed an FHA insured mortgage, called the "Streamline (K)" Limited Repair Program that permits homebuyers to finance up to an additional $35,000 into their mortgage to improve or upgrade their home before move-in. With this product, homebuyers can quickly and easily tap into cash to pay for property repairs or improvements, such as those identified by a home inspector or FHA appraiser. All standard FHA underwriting guides apply as they do for regular FHA loans in regards to credit, income & asset documentation, as well as the use of automated underwriting systems and manual underwrites.

VA Loans

The VA loan is available to Active Duty Military, Veterans and Reservists. The VA home loan program gives you the ability to buy with no out of pocket cost. The loan maximum is $417,000 including the VA imposed Funding Fee. As the VA program requires no mortgage insurance, monthly payments are frequently less than any other no down payment loan. If you have a high interest rate VA loan, there is a low cost Interest Rate Reduction Loan (IRRL) program which allows you to refinance and lower your mortgage payment inexpensively.

Term: 30 years Maximum Amount: $453,100

Adjustable-Rate 3/1 5/1 7/1 10/1 (Arms)

An "ARM", or "Adjustable Rate Mortgage" has a fluctuating interest rate and the potential for changing payment amounts. In most ARM mortgages, the interest rate on a loan is fixed for a certain number of years and then allowed to fluctuate in sync with current economic factors.

An adjustable rate mortgage can be a useful tool when fixed rate loan rates begin to rise. In recent years, many lenders have introduced some vary creative programs which can give you an opportunity to actively manage your mortgage payments.
