Types of Loans

Adjustable-Rate Mortgages (ARMs): An ARM offers initially lower interest rates that adjust periodically, potentially leading to savings for borrowers who plan to sell or refinance before rates rise.

Conventional Loans: Conventional loans are the most common type of mortgage, offering fixed or adjustable interest rates and a range of terms for borrowers with good credit and stable income.

Combo Piggyback Loan: The combo piggyback loan creatively combines two mortgages, often helping avoid PMI and providing financing solutions for those with smaller down payments.

Energy-Efficient Mortgage: Energy-efficient mortgages provide homeowners the means to finance energy-saving upgrades, contributing to reduced utility costs and sustainable living.

FHA Loans (Federal Housing Administration): FHA loans are government-backed mortgages that allow first-time homebuyers and those with limited down payment capabilities to secure financing with relaxed credit requirements.

Home Equity Loan: A home equity loan lets homeowners borrow against their home’s equity, providing a lump sum for various needs, typically with a fixed interest rate.

Interest-Only Mortgage: An interest-only mortgage allows borrowers to pay only interest for a specified period, potentially leading to lower initial payments before principal payments begin.

Jumbo Loans: Jumbo loans exceed conventional loan limits and cater to buyers seeking financing for luxury homes or properties in high-cost real estate markets.

Reverse Mortgage: A reverse mortgage, available to seniors, converts home equity into cash payments, providing financial flexibility while residing in the home.

USDA Loans (United States Department of Agriculture): USDA loans cater to homebuyers in rural and suburban areas, providing low-to-moderate income families the opportunity to purchase homes with zero down payment.

VA Interest Rate Reduction Refinance Loan (IRRRL): A VA IRRRL, or streamline refinance, simplifies the refinancing process for veterans and service members, aiming to lower interest rates and payments.

VA Loans (Veterans Affairs): Exclusively available to eligible veterans and active-duty service members, VA loans provide favorable terms, no down payment, and reduced closing costs.

Refinancing Options

Refinance: Refinancing your existing mortgage can lead to significant savings by securing better loan terms, reducing interest rates, or adjusting the loan program to suit your changing financial needs.

Cash-Out Refinance: A cash-out refinance allows you to tap into your home’s equity, providing you with extra funds to finance home improvements, consolidate debts, invest, or cover other important expenses, all while refinancing your mortgage

Debt Consolidation Refinance: A debt consolidation refinance combines high-interest debts into a mortgage, streamlining payments and potentially reducing overall interest costs.

FHA Streamline Refinance: An FHA streamline refinance simplifies the process for current FHA borrowers, aiming to lower interest rates and simplify the paperwork.

Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) Refinance: A HELOC refinance allows homeowners to optimize their existing line of credit for better terms, adjusting credit limits and repayment options.

Rate and Term Refinance: A rate and term refinance adjusts the interest rate or loan term of an existing mortgage, potentially leading to lower payments or quicker repayment.
