Conventional loans are available with low down payment requirements (with qualifying credit requirements). They are backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac and in some cases a portfolio bank. Conventional loans can be used to finance 2nd homes, investment properties, single family residences and condos. Conventional loans with 80% or lower LTV (Loan-to-Value) ratio will not require mortgage insurance added to the payment. Conventional loans can be financed as a 10 to 30 year fixed, as well as 7/1, 5/1, 3/1, and a 1/1 adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs.)
FHA home loans are mortgage loans that are insured against default by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). The benefits of an FHA loan are low down payment requirements, flexible income, debt, and credit requirements, down payment and closing costs may be funded by a gift, grant or secured loan. They also come in handy for homebuyers with limited savings and/or low-to-moderate income.
The VA (Veterans Administration) Loan provides veterans with a federally guaranteed home loan, which requires no down payment. This program was designed to provide housing and assistance for veterans and their families.

These loans are for homebuyers that are qualified veterans, reservists, active-duty service members, have limited savings and/or low-to-moderate income.
Guaranteed by the USDA, Rural Housing Loans are similar to VA and FHA, except they are only available in select rural areas and have income limitations. Rural housing loans are not limited to first time home buyers and do not require a down payment. The seller can contribute up to 6% of the purchase price towards buyers closing and prepaid costs. Financing is available as a 30-year fixed only, for single-family residences and condos only.
A reverse mortgage is a type of home equity loan that allows homeowners to convert some of their equity into cash while retaining home ownership. Reverse mortgages are designed for senior citizens age 62 and older who own and occupy their home. A reverse mortgage may include tax-free funds, no loan repayment, no income, medical or credit requirements. The borrower must continue to pay insurance and real estate taxes.
Jumbo loans are available up to $900,000 with no adjustment to rate but can go up to $2 million. Available for refinances or purchases, mortgage insurance is not required. Jumbo loans can be financed as a 15 or 30-year fixed rate mortgage or as a competitive ARM product.
