OUR HOME LOAN
EXPERTS ARE READY
TO HELP YOU.

Conventional Loan
  • "Conventional" just means that the loan is not government program, such as FHA, USDA, or VA.
  • There are two main categories of conventional loans
    1. Conforming Loans
    2. Non-Conforming Loans
  • There are three main types of conventional loans:
    1. Conforming (<= $424,100)
    2. Conforming Jumbo ($424,101 - $636,150; county specific)
    3. Jumbo (Non-Conforming)(up to $10,000,000)
  • The majority of loans are conventional. The majority of conventional loans are 30 year fixed mortgages.
  • Conventional loans cost less than FHA loans, but getting qualified can be more difficult.
Fixed Rate Mortgage
  • Interest Rate and Principle & (PI) Interest payments will not change for the life of the loan.
  • Fixed rate periods are 30, 25, 20, 15 and 10 years.
  • Purchase a home with as little as 3.00% down payment.
  • Fixed rate mortgages with Interest Only (IO) payments are available.
Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM)
  • Interest Rate and monthly Principal & Interest (PI) payment remain the same for an initial period of 5, 7 or 10 years, then adjusts annually.
  • The interest rate cap limits the maximum amount your rate and monthly P&I payment may increase at each adjustment, and over the life of the loan.
  • Typically ARM’s have a lower initial interest rate than fixed rate mortgages.
  • Provides flexibility if you expect future income growth, or if you plan to move, or refinance, within a few years.
FHA Loan
  • The Federal Housing Administration insures FHA loans.
  • Allow for down payments as low as 3.50%.
  • Allow lower credit scores than most conventional loans.
  • Have a maximum loan amount that varies by county.
  • Mortgage insurance is a requirement for all FHA loans.
  • A co-applicant may help with qualification even if they do not live in the home.
VA Loan
  • The Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA) guarantees VA loans for eligible veterans, current service members, and surviving spouses.
  • There is no mortgage insurance. The VA guarantee replaces mortgage insurance.
  • Do not require monthly mortgage insurance premiums, but usually require an upfront VA Funding Fee.
  • Veterans with service related disabilities may be eligible for the VA Funding Fee Waiver.
  • The VA IRRRL (Interest Rate Reduction Refinancing Loan) allows for low-cost, streamlined refinance options.
  • VA Jumbo loans up to $1,500,000 are available regardless of county loan limits.
Jumbo (Non-Conforming) Loan
  • Loan amounts are typically greater than $424,100.
  • Typically up to $1-2 million, but can be up to $10 million.
  • Rules vary by investor, but Primary Residence, Second Home, and up to 4 unit Investment Property loan programs are available
  • Fixed rates, ARM’s, 40 year terms and interest only payment options are available.

Brian made this transaction very easy, he was always available for me to contact by phone, text, email. His knowledge was spot on and he was a great help to me throughout the entire process. I would strongly recommend him to my family, friends and coworkers.

I discovered Watermark on BankRate. I was a little concerned that choosing the mortgage company with the best rate might leave me wanting when it came to service. I was wrong! In fact, this was home purchase #8 for me, and the process was never easier. A special thanks to Douazong -- she was the most helpful, complete, thorough, thoughtful, and always-available mortgage banker that I've worked with over the last 3 decades. If you need a mortgage and don't make a call to Watermark, you're simply ... Read More »

Charles was great from the start to finish of the loan. I went through a few transactions as I had to back out because of inspections and didn’t want the homes. I can imagine the frustrations I have this man…. However, he was professional until we finally closed on something!

Jason and his team helped us through a very stressful escrow last year in July. The seller’s team was strict about meeting deadlines and kept threatening to cancel escrow, so Jason and his team kept us ahead of schedule every step of the way to ensure a successful home purchase. Having a good team on your side makes all the difference, and I would definitely want to work with Jason and Watermark Home Loans in the future. Highly recommend!

After getting a couple of estimates from other lenders a friend of mine recommended that I reach out to Amanda Blankenship here at Watermark Home Loans. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I made throughout the entire process!! She not only gave me a good rate but she also took the time to explain the home buying process better than my realtor could! The way she explained everything and every number and step made me want to purchase another home before I was done buying my first home!!... Read More »
