If you’re considering a lot loan, there are a variety of qualifying factors, including but not limited to, credit score, down payment amount and debt-to-income ratio. Contact your mortgage loan officer to learn more about how to get a lot loan.
A lot loan is a mortgage that pays for a residential lot on which a single-family detached home will be built in the near future. It’s different from a construction loan in that it only pays for the lot the home will be built on. The construction loan pays for the construction of the home itself. Condo properties and properties with existing structures on the site are not eligible.
Lot loans are available to qualified buyers who are interested in buying a lot to build a home on. With lot loans, the initial interest rate is fixed for a set period and then becomes variable, adjusting every year for the remaining life of the loan. For example, a 5/1 ARM lot loan has a fixed rate for the first five years and an adjustable rate for the remaining duration of the loan. To learn more about how lot loans work, connect with your mortgage loan officer.
A fixed-rate loan is one of the most common types of home loans. Benefits include a consistent rate, predictable monthly principal and interest payments and a flexible down payment. If you meet the U.S. Bank credit score and debt-to-income ratio (the ratio of total monthly debt payments – not including utilities, cell phone or cable service – compared to gross monthly income) requirements, a conventional fixed-rate loan may be a good option for you.
A fixed-rate loan is a type of loan that comes with an interest rate that won't change for the life of the loan. Check out today’s rates for a conventional fixed-rate loan or compare mortgage rates for a variety of loan options. Connect with your mortgage loan officer to learn more about how fixed-rate loans work.
Monthly principal and interest payments on a conventional fixed-rate mortgage remain the same for the life of the loan, making it an attractive option for those who plan to stay in their home for several years. With an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) the interest rate may change periodically, based on a pre-determined index – for example, the U.S. Treasury – and margin set by the bank. The initial interest rate is fixed for a set period of five, seven or 10 years depending on the loan product, and then becomes variable. An increase or decrease depends on the market conditions at the time of the conversion to the variable rate and during the adjustment period thereafter. This may be a good option for those who plan on moving within a few years. Consider the benefits of each to determine which makes the most sense for your situation.
A jumbo loan is for single-family homes with loan amounts greater than $726,200. In certain high cost areas, such as Alaska and Hawaii, the loan amount must be greater than $1,089,300. To qualify for a jumbo mortgage loan, you must meet the established guidelines for credit score, income and other personal financial information.
Jumbo loans are mortgages that exceed conforming loan limits. The limit on conforming loans is $726,200 in most areas of the country, but jumbo mortgages can exceed these limits. The limit can be as high as $1,089,300 in certain high cost areas, including Alaska and Hawaii.
A VA jumbo loan is a Veterans Affairs (VA) loan that exceeds the conforming loan limit of $726,200 and up to $1,089,300 in high-cost areas such as Alaska and Hawaii. If you’re an active-duty service member, veteran or eligible surviving spouse, and you meet the income and credit requirements, a VA jumbo loan could be an option for you.
Depending on your home-ownership goals, there are several options for first-time home buyer loans. Some examples include Federal Housing Administration (FHA), Veterans Affairs (VA) and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) loans, which allow for low to no-down payments for qualified buyers. Conventional loans are another option, and you could qualify with a credit score as low as 620 but you’ll need a more substantial down payment (up to 20% depending on your situation). It’s important to consider the benefits of different loan options before deciding which one is right for you.
To qualify for mortgage loans that are best suited for first-time home buyers, there are general requirements that can include:
Your mortgage loan officer can work with you to see if you qualify for any first-time home buyer loans.
If you have not owned a home in the last three years, you may be eligible to apply for a first-time home buyer loan and down payment assistance. The requirements for each loan type vary, but they typically are based on your credit score and down payment amount. Contact your mortgage loan officer to see if you qualify.
Yes. If you have enough equity in your home, you can consolidate a home equity loan, line of credit or other debt (like a credit card or car loan) into a Cash-out Refinance for a first-lien mortgage loan. With this option, the existing home mortgage and any liens on the property are paid off and replaced with a new mortgage. When you close on the loan, part of the loan will pay off your first mortgage and the cash-out part will pay off your home equity loan, line of credit or other debt.
Just as with your first mortgage, you must meet certain requirements to qualify for a mortgage refinance. The process includes applying for the loan, going through the underwriting process and closing on the home. A mortgage refinance may allow you to reduce your term, lower your monthly payments or reduce your interest rate. To learn more about how to refinance a mortgage, connect with your mortgage loan officer.
To qualify for a Veterans Affairs (VA) refinance loan, you must be an active-duty service member, veteran or eligible surviving spouse. A VA loan may allow you to refinance a home with little or no equity to get cash out or to lower your monthly payment. If you don’t meet the qualifications for a VA refinance loan, Federal Housing Administration (FHA) refinance loans offer similar advantages, including lower borrower equity requirements.
