Home Financing Guide

Trying to decide which loan is right for you?

Residential Loans

FHA Loans:
Backed by the Federal Housing Administration, FHA loans are designed to assist homebuyers with limited down payment capabilities. They provide a government-backed pathway to homeownership, making it accessible for individuals with modest financial resources.

VA Loans:
Exclusively for military veterans, VA loans offer a unique opportunity with low or no down payment requirements. These loans provide eligible service members and veterans with favorable terms and government-backed financing options.

Conventional Loans:
Conventional loans are suitable for buyers with a strong credit history and financial stability. Unlike government-backed loans, they follow guidelines set by private lenders and typically require a larger down payment.

USDA Loans:
Aimed at promoting homeownership in rural and suburban areas, USDA loans offer low to zero down payment options. These loans are designed to support buyers looking to reside in eligible rural zones.
