Conventional Mortgages

A conventional mortgage is a loan that is not backed by the government. These loans are available through private lenders and banks. Conventional mortgages typically have fixed interest rates and terms.

FHA Mortgages

FHA mortgages are loans that are insured by the Federal Housing Administration. These loans are available to borrowers with low credit scores and down payments as low as three percent. These loans are ideal for people who cannot afford the traditional 20 percent down payment. 

VA Mortgages

VA mortgages are loans that are guaranteed by the Department of Veterans Affairs. These loans are available to active-duty military members, veterans, and their spouses. VA mortgages typically have lower interest rates than other types of mortgages.

USDA Mortgages

USDA mortgages are loans that are guaranteed by the United States Department of Agriculture. These loans are available to borrowers in rural areas with low to medium incomes. Some of the potential benefits of a USDA mortgage include lower interest rates, low or no down payments, and a lower monthly payment.
