Foothills AZ Home Loan Information
Getting the right type of real estate home loan is an important part of the home buying process. In this section of my website, I have put together some basic information regarding the types of real estate home loans that are common in the market today.
Fixed-rate mortgages Fixed-rate mortgages are mortgages where the interest rate stays the same for the entire term of the loan. The advantage to a fixed-rate mortgage is that if you lock a relatively low rate, your payment won’t go up when rates do.
Adjustable-Rate Mortgages With an adjustable-rate mortgage, the rate of the loan can change throughout the term of the loan. The rate of the loan is based on adding points to a fixed base.
Hybrid loans A hybrid loan combines a fixed period along with an adjustable component. Usually, these loans are fixed for a period of time and then the loan becomes adjustable where it is dependant on current rates.
FHA real estate home loans An FHA loan is a loan in the United States that is insured by the Federal Housing Administration.
VA real estate home loans A VA loan is a loan in the United States guaranteed by the Veterans Administration. The loan may be issued by qualified lenders. The VA was designed to offer long-term financing to American Veterans or to their surviving spouses.
