Selecting a Loan Program

The number of loan programs available can be overwhelming. How can you be certain that you are matched with a mortgage that aligns with your financial and personal goals? When you partner with CFI, we will demystify home loans with simple yet thorough explanations. We will guide you through the options available in these basic loan categories:

  • Conventional loans
  • Government loans
  • Jumbo loans
  • Construction/Perm loans, or C/P loans

 

 

Home Loans Defined

Each loan category is intended to meet the varying needs of home-buyers. Within each loan category, you’ll find specific programs that possess different qualification requirements.

Conventional Loans

Conventional loans are not insured by the federal government. Patterns in the borrower’s income, expenses and credit report are considered when determining qualification for a conventional loan. A down payment of 5 to 20 percent is typically required. Additionally, the interest rate is calculated based on the specific conventional loan program selected and the borrower’s credit score. At CFI, we can help you secure one of these conventional loans on your home purchase:

  • Fixed-rate loan
  • 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage
  • 15-year, fixed-rate mortgage
  • Adjustable rate mortgage
  • Home Affordable Refinance Program, or HARP loan

 

Government Loans

Government loans are touted as a flexible, affordable option for those who qualify. They may offer lower interest rates, flexible payment arrangements and require a lower down payment compared to their conventional counterparts. At CFI, we can help you determine if you qualify for one of these government loan programs:

  • FHA Loans, for those who struggle to secure financing for a conventional loan.
  • VA Loans, providing assistance to those who have bravely served our country.
  • USDA Loans, focusing on rural and suburban home purchases.
  • HARP 2.0 refinance options.
  • FHA 203K Home Improvement Loans.
  • State and local government loan assistance.
  • FNMA Homestyle Loans for home improvement purposes.

Jumbo Loans

If you have your sights set on a high-priced home, talk to us about our Jumbo Loan programs. These programs are designed with the flexibility to get you into the home of your dreams. Our Jumbo Loans feature:

  • Down payment requirements of as little as 20 percent.
  • Interest-only options for a fixed amount of time at the beginning of the loan.
  • Higher debt-to-income ratios than other loans.
  • The ability for non-occupying individuals to co-sign your loan.

 

C/P Loans

C/P loans streamline new construction financing. Rather than securing separate construction and end loans, this program weaves both loan types into one package. This reduces overall borrower fees and eliminates the need for two closings and a requalification process.

A Step-By-Step Guide to the Loan Process

While each loan program may vary slightly, here are eight basic steps that you can expect when you are securing a mortgage:

  1. Pre-qualification for the loans you are considering and the amount of money you need.
  2. Analysis of mortgage rates to narrow down your loan selection.
  3. Completion of a loan application with your trusted mortgage professional.
  4. Collection of the required documents to finalize your loan application.
  5. Application processing, where information about the borrower is verified by the lending agency.
  6. Property appraisal.
  7. Underwriting.
  8. Closing.
