5 Types Of Home Loans

Here’s a list of 5 different home loans you can apply for and their meaning.


1. Conventional:

Typically fixed in its terms, and a conventional mortgage is a loan that is not guaranteed or insured by any government agency. It is typically fixed in its terms and rate.


2. FHA:

FHA insured loans are a type of federal assistance, and have historically allowed lower income Americans to borrow money for the purchase of a home that they would not otherwise be able to afford. An FHA insured loan is a US Federal Housing Administration mortgage insurance backed mortgage loan which is provided by a FHA-approved lender.


3.VA loan:

A VA loan is a mortgage loan in the United States guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The loan may be issued by qualified lenders. The VA loan was designed to offer long-term financing to eligible American veterans or their surviving spouses.


4. Rural Housing Loan:

A loan product offered by an agency within the Department of Agriculture. The agency provides financing to farmers and other qualified borrowers buying property in rural areas who are unable to obtain loans elsewhere.


5. USDA Loan:

These loans are government insured by the USDA, and are usually for low to middle income households buying a home for primary  residence. USDA loans have special features that differ from conventional loans,  which attract buyers who have typically been denied for other loans, yet still are looking for a way to afford a home.

When searching for a home loan make sure you take your time and explore all your options, buying a home is probably one of the most expensive purchases you’ll ever make, so take your time and do your research.
