There are a variety of loan products offered in today’s market. There are a few common loan products that are used in home buying. Here is a brief outline of the most common:
A Conventional loan is typically described as a loan that is not insured by the government or any agency. This loan is typically fixed in its terms and rate. Typically, this loan requires 20% down, but I have seen buyers get a conventional loan with as little as 5%.
Check out the FHA website for bit of history and their purpose. They insure lenders that follow their guidelines.
The Veteran’s Administration guarantees a portion of a service member’s home loan so that terms are more favorable for the veteran. Check out the VA’s website for a detail on loans offered, benefits, eligibility, and how to apply.
