HOW DO I GET STARTED?
Simple: we find the right loan for you.
Want to know one way we make it enjoyable? We keep it simple, with a small number of steps to get you from here to closing day and into your new home. Get a look into how we do it with this short video, “Home Refinance Loan Process.”
Here we go, the first step. It starts with completing an application, either online or with the assistance of a loan officer. After that, your friendly neighborhood officer will help you determine which program
Yes! See, we told you, this is fun! Now you’re on the hunt for the perfect place to call home. A real estate agent can spot any issues and make sure you’re aware, as well as secure the best terms and price
With a sales contract agreed upon, everybody’s on the same page. Now the Mortgage Loan Originator begins to work on the best options and terms, then provides you with an estimate.
This is when you really want to get up close and personal. With a thorough examination of the home, an inspector will check over the build, structure, materials and any defects or items you will want to
You! Are! So! Close! At this point, the underwriter will review all the documentation. If it meets the minimum requirements, they’ll issue a “conditional approval.”
And here we are… with final sign-off, you’re clear to close. We’ll get the paperwork ready for you to sign, then we’ll move the money to the title company to pay for your home. High-fives all around!
FEATURED LOAN PROGRAMS
What type of loans are available?
This is the usual starting point for many, because it’s exactly what it sounds like: conventional. A Conventional Loan is pretty standard and requires a minimum down payment of 5%, for a maximum loan amount of $548,250. In addition:
USDA Home Loans
For a USDA Home Loan, a new or existing property must be located in a USDA-approved area. While there may possibly be financed closing costs, there is no down payment required (100% – 102% LTV financing based on appraised value.) These also feature reduced monthly mortgage insurance premiums. In addition:
With no income limits, FHA Loans require a 3.5% minimum down payment and a maximum loan amount of $356,362. For condominiums, they must be on FHA-approved list. Also, an upfront Mortgage Insurance premium is financed into the loan. In addition:
VA (Veterans Affairs) Loans
Specifically for Veterans, VA Loans require no down payment (loan applicants must meet VA eligibility, however.) The maximum loan amount is $548,250, with no mortgage insurance. The VA funding fee can be financed into the loan (which can be waived by disabled veterans.)
Just like any other type of mortgage, though the applicant must be 62 years or older, own the property, and occupy it as their primary residence. One nice bonus? You don’t have to make a payment until the last surviving homeowner permanently moves out of the property or passes away. At that point, any remaining equity will be inherited by the estate.
For homes exceeding the value of Conventional Loans as established by the FHFA (the current conforming loan limit for one-unit homes in most counties nationwide is $548,250). Predominantly used to finance homes in highly competitive real estate markets or luxury homes, Jumbo Loans are usually available with a fixed interest rate or an adjustable rate.
It's always fast and easy working with Glenn, April, and the team. This is my third loan through them and it's always been a pleasant experience.
