For a complete list of offerings and to find out which loan best suites your circumstances, please contact us at 301-277-7600.
|Conventional Loan||Conventional loans are not backed by the government, so they require private mortgage insurance (PMI). Conventional loans offer competitive rates to buyers who have documentation and good credit and often offer flexibility in underwriting.|
|FHA or VA Loan||FHA and VA loans are government guaranteed loans. Often these loans carry lower down payments and favorable loan terms.|
|Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac purchase these conventional loans and ultimately provide availability of mortgage credit for Americans. Conforming Loan Limit for 2012 is $417,000. Loans larger than the conforming limit are considered non-conforming or Jumbo loans, and often carry higher interest rates.|
|Fixed or Adjustable Rates||With a fixed rate loan, the interest rate and the monthly payment of your mortgage will remain fixed for the life of the loan, usually 15, 25, 30 or 40 years. The payments are structured to pay a large portion of the interest early in the life of the loan, and later payments apply more toward the principal. An adjustable rate mortgage adjusts the monthly payments to a predetermined index over time. Adjustable rates transfer part of the interest rate risk from the lender to the borrower. The borrower benefits if the interest rate falls and loses out if interest rates rise.|
