Conventional Fixed Rate Mortgages (FRM)
A popular loan type, conventional fixed rate loans 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. Contact us for details on down payment requirements.
Available terms generally range from 10 years, 15 years, 30 years and 40 years.
Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM)
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.
Refinance Mortgage Loans
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.
FHA 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. Those who choose these loans are required to pay mortgage insurance which slightly increases their monthly payments.
Lenders who wish to offer these loans must be approved by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Please contact us today to find out if a FHA loan is right for you.
VA Mortgage Loans
Like a FHA loan, VA loans are private loans insured by the federal government. VA loans are only available to qualified military veterans and their families. These loans are only available to these individuals for their own primary residences and cannot exceed a $417,000 loan limit.

Reverse Mortgage Loans
Reverse Mortgages or (Home Equity Conversion Mortgages HECMs) are a special home equity loan for homeowners of 62 years of age or older. These loans allow borrowers to borrow against the equity that they have built up over years of paying down the mortgage on their home to supplement their retirement income. The loan itself will have fees and closing cost involved as there is with any mortgage transaction. Also there is interest added to the loan balance each month, the loan balance grows over time, and funds may be disbursed via a lump sum single disbursement, in monthly payments, or as a line of credit. Borrowers generally do not have to pay back the loan while themselves or an eligible spouse live in the home; however, borrower must continue to pay taxes, insurance, utilities and to maintain the home in order to continue to occupy the home. "Non-borrowing" spouses may be eligible to continue living in the home after the borrower passes away; however, the non-borrowing spouse will stop receiving the money from the reverse mortgage after the borrower spouse passes away. The loan becomes due in full at the time the last borrower, co-borrower, or eligible spouse either passes away, sells the home, or moves out. Borrower's estate or heirs may pay off the reverse mortgage through the sale of the home or retain the home via a refinance (neither the borrower nor their heirs will have to pay back more than the home is worth). Reverse mortgage is not a risk free loan and should be considered carefully; for more information on reverse mortgage visit the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau website at www.consumerfinance.gov/askcfpb/233/reversemortgage.html

Warrantable and Non-warrantable Condos
The majority of homebuyers use "conforming" mortgage financing.
This means that their loan purchased by one of two government-sponsored entities -- Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac -- and that the loan meets the two group's minimum standards.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac use the term "warrantable" to describe condominium projects and properties against which they'll allow a mortgage.
Condo projects and properties which don't meet Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac warrantability standards are known as non-warrantable.
Non-warrantable condos are more challenging to finance.
Typically, a condo is considered warrantable if:
- No single entity owns more than 10% of the units in a project, including the developer
- At least 51% of the units are owner-occupied
- Fewer than 15% of the units are in arrears with their association dues
- The homeowners association (HOA) is not named in any lawsuits
- Commercial space accounts for 25 percent or less of the total building square footage
Common non-warrantable properties include condotels, time shares, fractional ownership properties, and other projects which require owners to join an organization, such as a golf club.
When buying a condo, please ask me about the building's warrantability before you go any further.
