Three Types of Home Mortgages

Three Types of Home Mortgages

When you go to a lender which is usually the bank (there are intermediary companies called lenders, but they don’t give the money for the loan they are in between you and the bank) for a home loan there are a few that may fit your situation. It is the lenders job to find the loan (in this case the mortgage) that best suits your situation.

The three loans that are primarily available for loans for mortgages are:

1. A Conventional Loan
2. A FHA Loan
3. VA Loan

A Conventional Loan is a regular mortgage loan. This is a go to the bank and take out a loan mortgage. FHA Loans are government loans that make it easier for people to buy a home. The thing about FHA loans is the government guarantees part of the loan. If a person has problems making their mortgage payments then the government will pay it back for you. This is providing you are in default (the bank is in the process of taking your home because you can’t meet the mortgage payments). Since FHA loans are guaranteed they are easier to pay back. Keep in mind that the government will only step in and pay after your house is repossessed. Not all home sellers will agree to take this type of loan. This is because they feel there is too much red tape involved. If you qualify for a FHA loan the house cannot be a fixer upper. An FHA home has to pass the home inspection with flying colors. However there are several FHA programs for those who qualify.

VA loans are for Veterans; those who have served in the armed forces of the United States. The good thing about VA home loans is that you may have the down payment waved. With a VA loan the government guarantees the loan like an FHA loan to make the lender feel comfortable with lending the person asking the money. A VA loan can be combined with a second mortgage. In that case the bank makes the primary loan for the price of the home and the seller makes a separate loan for the buyer so they can cover the rest of the costs involved. The best thing about a VA loan is that it can be qualified so that if a future buyer is interested in your home your hands are not tied if you have to sell it. You can also sell the home to anyone you choose. They do not have to be a veteran.
