buying my first home

First homes can be a challenge in more ways than one.

where do I start?

First of all, congratulations. Buying a house is a big financial leap. Luckily, our mortgage experts are here to make the homebuying process as easy as possible.

The first step in any homebuying transaction is to get pre-approved. This helps determine how much you can afford to spend on a home and conditionally commits the lender to financing purchase in that price range.

which loan should I choose?

With so many loan products available these days, navigating through all the choices can be tough. While many buyers opt for a standard 30-year fixed-rate loan, there are some other really great options for first-timers.

ARM loans offer the lowest initial interest rates of any loan product, but increase after an introductory fixed period. This is a great choice if you want to minimize your monthly payments and plan to move or refinance in the near future.

FHA loans are advantageous for first-time homebuyers who don’t have much money to put down. They have less stringent credit and underwriting requirements, and down payments start as low as 3.5%.

VA loans offer special benefits to veterans and are one of the few mortgage options that require no money down.

Let us help you find the perfect loan for you.
