Which Option Is Right For You?
Today it seems there are as many different types of home financing as there are different types of homes. While loan choices are normally a good thing, consumers need an experienced and ethical mortgage professional to help them navigate the confusing and muddied waters of mortgage financing.
Why? Because on the surface some loan programs sound like the best thing since sliced bread, yet lurking under the hood are loan terms or costs that are not apparent nor the appropiate fit for you and your family.
While I strive to provide one of the widest selections of home financing options available in the industry, your particular needs are first and foremost when formulating a mortgage plan for you.
Whether you’re all set to buy or just trying to figure out what you can afford in your new location, I can help. Wether you are moving across the street or relocating from the west coast to Georgia, I can help you make all the right choices. My team can customize a mortgage to your unique needs, drawing from one of the industry’s broadest selections of products.
In addition to all the conventional loan options, we offer special programs that overcome obstacles such as credit issues, hard-to-document income, or lack of savings. Whatever your financial profile, as a Professional Mortgage Planner with 20 years experience, my team can help you capitalize on purchase opportunities through faster approvals, higher loan-to-value (LTV) ratios, and streamlined processing. We also have an attractive menu of innovative programs that include new construction financing, specialized options for homes that require renovation, and programs designed specifically to benefit your particular needs.
Several decades ago, lenders required homebuyers to provide a 20% down payment as protection against the possibility of the homebuyers defaulting on their loans. The invention of mortgage insurance for home purchases made with less of a down payment means that today’s lenders can offer a variety of low and no-money-down options.
That’s useful for a range of buyers such as:
First-time buyers who don’t have the funds to invest.
Buyers who want to keep their investment whole and use less cash upfront for their purchase.
Buyers who need to use their cash for renovations or other move-related expenses.
Whatever your financial reasoning, there are a number of ways to finance your down payment. I can work with you to structure a home financing package that takes into consideration your total financial outlook.
