What is a mortgage?
A mortgage is a type of loan that is used to buy or refinance a home or property. There are many types of mortgage loans, but it’s easy to understand their unique features and benefits with a useful mortgage comparison. Knowing the differences between the types of mortgages can help you prepare to apply for a mortgage loan when you find a home or property you love.
What are the different types of mortgages?
- FHA (Fair Housing Administration) Loans
FHA loans are mortgages backed by the Federal Housing Administration. With an FHA loan, the government guarantees loan repayment to the lender to incentivize lenders to make loans they otherwise would not approve.
FHA loans are popular among first-time homebuyers since they offer lower credit score and down payment requirements. They are generally easier to qualify for than conventional loans but require mortgage insurance to protect the lender against loss if you fail to pay your mortgage.
- VA (Veterans Affairs) Loans
VA Loans are mortgages insured by the Department of Veterans Affairs. With a VA loan, active service members, veterans and eligible surviving spouses can buy a home with little or no down payment. VA loans do not require mortgage insurance, which can save you hundreds per year in these fees. To qualify for a VA loan, applicants must meet certain eligibility requirements.
- Conventional Mortgage
Conventional loans are the most common type of mortgage that is not guaranteed by the federal government. They are often the best option for borrowers with strong credit who can contribute a down payment of at least 3%.
- Fixed Rate Vs. Variable Rate
A fixed-rate loan is the most common type of conventional mortgage. With a fixed-rate mortgage, your interest rate and principal and interest payment will remain the same throughout the life of the loan. These rates are typically based on credit score, loan amount and loan term, and they might be higher up front.
With a variable (or adjustable) rate loan, you will likely benefit from a lower introductory interest rate which will then be adjusted based on a predetermined schedule and a nationally reported index rate (usually the Prime Rate). Variable-rate loans can be a good choice if you plan to buy a starter home before moving to your forever home.
