Mortgage Options

Buying a home is one of the biggest financial decisions you’ll make in your life. It doesn’t have to be a big hassle.

 

A variety of mortgage options are available for home purchases and refinances. Our mortgage loan officers are here to help you evaluate the options that best fit your needs.

Personal assistance — Our mortgage loan officers will answer all your questions, offer advice and help you in any way possible. Talk to a mortgage loan officer to discuss your options.

Multiple loan options for property located in VA — Loans for primary residences, second homes and land. Loans for investment property are also available. We offer options for single-family homes, town homes, warrantable condos, modular homes, and manufactured homes.

Purchases & refinances — Loan programs listed here are available for purchases and refinances unless otherwise noted. See product details below including types of refinances available.

Rate/term refinances & cash out refinances — A "rate/term" refinance refers to the refinance of a first mortgage balance to change the rate and/or term without advancing new money on the loan. With a "cash out" refinance, additional funds are advanced, such as for home improvement, debt consolidation or other purposes.
