Comparing loan types
There are plenty of different types of home loans to choose from, but you want a loan program that fits your exact needs and financial situation. Many loans are designed for borrowers in good financial standing with great credit and a hefty sum in their savings, but you don’t have to have either of these things to buy a home.
First-time homebuyers qualify for many special programs, as do low-income borrowers and veterans. Some special programs allow a low down payment or even no down payment at all. Others make allowances for borrowers with a less than perfect credit score. Depending on your level of financial need, you might even qualify for a grant program to help with closing costs.
Conventional loans: perfect for financially secure homebuyers
Conventional loans are what most borrowers are familiar with in the home mortgage market. These traditional loans generally require a good credit score and down payment, but also offer the best interest rates. If this type of loan isn’t quite right for you, there are plenty of other programs, including guaranteed loans backed by the United States Government and those that encourage private lenders to look beyond credit reports and bank balances.
Getting a VA loan: what’s your military connection?
A VA loan is backed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and is available to active duty service members, veterans, and surviving spouses. A VA loan has a funding fee you’ll pay to help support the program, and may not require a down payment if you have decent credit. VA loans also have no loan limits aside from those imposed by lenders, making it easier to buy a home in an expensive area of the country.
USDA loans: guaranteed and direct loans
USDA loans are designed to encourage the purchase of houses in rural areas. They have a lot of benefits, and there are two avenues you can take; applying through a participating lender for a USDA guaranteed loan, or going directly to a local Rural Development Office and having the USDA itself act as the lender. Be aware that a USDA loan will have many restrictions, however, including maximum income limits, allowed zip codes, and even size limits on how much square footage a home can have to qualify. Direct loans are even more restricted.
Which loan program is right for you?
You need a home loan that takes your financial situation, ability to repay, and personal wants and needs for a home into account. You may be able to qualify for a loan program that provides you with financial assistance, including down payment assistance or closing cost assistance. You might be able to leverage a gift of cash from a family member to increase your down payment or negotiate the purchase price and closing costs with the seller.
You need a professional team to help you make the right decision and acquire the best mortgage loan and interest rate possible. Sammamish Mortgage loan officers aren’t commission-based; instead, our LOs receive generous salaries to ensure they give you mortgage advice that is based on your best interests.
