Conventional Loans

Conventional Loans are mortgage loans that are not insured by the government (like FHA, VA, USDA Loans),

but they typically meet the lending guidelines that have been set by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. Typically,

conventional loans have better rates, terms and lower fees than other types of loans. However, conventional

loans typically require a borrower to have good-to-excellent credit, reasonable amounts of monthly debt

obligations, a down payment of 5-20% and reliable monthly income. Conventional loans are ideal for

borrowers  with excellent credit and at least a 5% down payment.

for a Single Family Home. Jumbo loans feature similar loan programs – fixed rate and adjustable rate

programs.  The main difference between jumbo loans and conforming loans is loans is the interest rate.

USDA Loans

A USDA Loan is a mortgage loan that is insured by the US Department of Agriculture and available to

qualified individuals who are purchasing or refinancing their home loan in an area that is not considered a

major metropolitan area by USDA.


Generally these loans are available to anyone who meets minimum credit guidelines and local area income

requirements and is purchasing a home or refinancing their home in an area that is not considered a major

metropolitan area by USDA.


Reverse Mortgage Loans

Many homeowners have found that a reverse mortgage loan is a great way for them to take advantage of the

equity they have built up in their homes.


A reverse mortgage loan is different than a traditional mortgage. With a traditional mortgage loan you make

monthly mortgage payments, but with a reverse mortgage loan the lender pays you money through monthly

installments, a one-time lump sum payment, a line of credit or a combination of a line of credit and monthly

installments. The money that you receive is dependent on your age, the value of your home and the current

interest rate.


One of the great advantages of a reverse mortgage loan is that you are not required to pay the loan back until

the home is no longer your primary residence or you fail to maintain the home, or fail to pay property taxes

and/or homeowner’s insurance or do not otherwise comply with the terms of the loan.


If you’re aged 62 or older and own your home you might be eligible for a reverse mortgage loan. Contact us
