Construction loans are short-term, interim loans used for new home construction, including land, contractor labor, building materials, permits and more. With these loans, the contractor receives disbursements as work progresses. There are several construction loans designed to fit nearly every new home construction need. Some options include construction-only loans and construction-to- permanent loans, where the loan is used for the construction of the home and then converts into a permanent mortgage loan.
Construction loans are short-term loans that cover the cost of building a new home. These loans are usually shorter in duration and proceeds are paid directly to the contractor in installments, or “draws,” as building milestones are achieved. An inspection is typically required before each payment is released to the contractor. To learn more about how construction loans work, connect with your mortgage loan officer.
If you’re considering a construction loan, there are a variety of qualifying factors, including but not limited to, credit score, debt-to-income ratio and credit history. Contact your mortgage loan officer to see if you qualify for a construction loan.
A Veterans Affairs (VA) loan is a home mortgage that’s backed by the Department of Veterans Affairs. To be eligible for a VA loan, you must be an active-duty service member, veteran or eligible surviving spouse. A VA home loan requires little or no money down at closing, and even with no down payment, mortgage insurance is not required.
Veterans Affairs (VA) loans are available to active-duty service members, veterans and eligible surviving spouses. A Certificate of Eligibility from the VA is required to show whether you qualify based on your service history and duty status. Your mortgage loan officer will work with you to obtain the Certificate of Eligibility and can help you better understand how VA loans work.
Veterans Affairs (VA) loans are available to active-duty service members and veterans who have served at least 90 days of consecutive service during wartime or 181 days during peacetime. National Guard members and reservists are eligible for a VA loan after six years of service or 181 days of active-duty service. Eligible surviving spouses may also qualify. For more information on how to apply for a VA home loan, contact your mortgage loan officer.
There are several ways active-duty service members, veterans and eligible surviving spouses can take advantage of a Veterans Affairs (VA) loan more than once. Here are some ways you may be eligible for another VA loan:

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.

A VA jumbo loan is a Veterans Affairs (VA) loan that exceeds the conforming loan limit of $766,550 and up to $1,149,825 in high-cost areas such as Alaska and Hawaii.
