What are my home loan options and how do they work?

It has been said that home ownership is an essential part of the American dream. To that end, there are several government-guaranteed loan programs to help first-time buyers. There are also different types of traditional mortgages. BTC Bank offers a full range of home mortgage loans. Learn more about your options here.

Government-Backed Loans

These types of mortgages are underwritten by banks, but guaranteed by the federal government, which makes it easier for banks to issue mortgages to specific populations of buyers such as veterans or first-time homeowners without a large down payment.

VA Loans

Available to eligible service members, veterans, and surviving spouses. The Veteran’s Administration provides insurance on VA loans, making it possible for lenders to offer up to 100% mortgage financing with a mortgage insurance requirement.

USDA Loans

Available loan program from the United States Department of Agriculture to help low and moderate-income buyers in eligible rural areas obtain financing.

Conventional Mortgages

These types of mortgages are provided through private lenders such as banks, mortgage companies, or other financial institutions. 

Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM)

These loans have an initial fixed interest rate for a certain length of time. After that, your mortgage rate will vary from year to year depending on index rates. Your interest rate could actually go down, but it could also go up, both of which affect your monthly payment. Many people with adjustable rate mortgages either sell their house after the initial fixed period or refinance into a fixed rate loan.

Fixed Rate Mortgage

Lock in today’s mortgage rates and make consistent monthly payments toward the principal, interest, and property taxes over the term of your loan. Fixed rate mortgages vary in length from 10, 15, 20, or 30 years.

Home Equity Loans

Your home equity is the difference between your current mortgage balance and the market value of your home. Once you’ve paid off enough of your mortgage and/or your home’s market value has increased, you can use a home equity loan to borrow money at a low interest rate.

Home Improvement Loans

You can turn your house into your dream home by financing home improvement projects from updating paint colors to adding a new backyard deck to adding hardwood floors. 

Home Mortgage Refinancing

Refinancing options are available for homeowners who wish to lower their monthly mortgage payments with a lower interest rate or to cash out some equity that's been acquired.
