Loan Programs

  • FHA Loan: This loan is government backed up which means that the loan is ensured by them. Eligible home buyers may qualify with a minimum credit score of 580 and with a down payment of 3.5% of the sales price. 
  • Down Payment Assistance: This is an FHA loan program that allows you to own a home with 0% down payment. The loan is forgivable after 5 years and you will bring little to no money to closing.
  • Conventional 97 Loan: This loan option allows for some borrowers to put down a down payment of 3% with a minimum credit score of 620 on a single family home, condo or PUDs. 
  • VA Loan: If you are a qualifying member of the military or a surviving spouse you may qualify for this loan program. The minimum credit score is 580 and there is no required down payment. 
  • USDA Loan: This loan is similar to the FHA program, it is a government backed up loan. If you are wanting to purchase a home in a designated rural area this is the loan for you. Borrowers have the ability to finance up to 100% of their mortgage, meaning 0% down payment required. There are income restrictions, contact us for more information on this.
  • Renovation Loan: You like the area but not the home, no problem. We have an FHA 203k and a Conventional Homestyle loan that will let you finance your renovation costs into the loan. The minimum down payment may vary from 3%-5%, contact us for more information.
