Our new home loan options:
CONVENTIONAL FIXED RATE LOANS
Florida fixed rate mortgage loans are the standard loan type for the majority of home financing, and are available in a variety of terms from 10 to 30 years. This loan type offers a consistent or “fixed” principal and interest payment throughout the life of the loan. Standard fixed rate terms are: 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 years, although 15 and 30 are the most common. By choosing a shorter fixed rate option, you can realize a substantial savings in interest over the life of the loan.
CONVENTIONAL ADJUSTABLE RATE LOANS
Less Popular and typically used when the fixed rates are higher, adjustable rate mortgages (arms) are a great fit for home buyers who plan to sell or refinance their home between 1 and 10 years and are looking for the lowest possible mortgage rate available. Adjustable rate mortgages are fixed for an initial period. After that, the interest rate will either go up, or down depending on market conditions of the index for the particular loan. All adjustable rate mortgages do have a max cap adjustment.
FHA loans are perfect loans for first time home buyers, but you do not have to be a first time home buyer to qualify. FHA loans offer easier qualification and as little as 3.5% down and up to 100% financing with approved gift funds. FHA home loans are a government insured loan type that has been helping borrowers since 1934. FHA home loans are a great option for first time home buyers, as credit standards are easier and FHA loans offer more flexibility with credit scores as low as 580 and a down payment as little as 3.5% down.
