Loan Options

Your Home Mortgage Loan Options

There are several loan options available when purchasing a home. Listed below are some of the home loan options offered by Premier Nationwide Lending. If you have any questions concerning the home loan process, please contact your Premier Home Mortgage Loan Expert who is on standby ready to assist you with your home mortgage needs.

FHA Lending

FHA loans are government-insured loans backed by the Federal Housing Authority. These guidelines offer the best hope for many borrowers to qualify for home loans on good terms they can afford.

Lower Downpayment

FHA loans require the lowest downpayments, and allow people to buy homes and start building equate sooner.

Lower Mortgage Insurance

In most cases, the monthly mortgage insurance fee paid on an FHA loan is lower than the fee paid on a conventional mortgage. This results in a lower monthly payment overall.

Better Interest Rates

FHA loan rates are generally very competitive.

Higher Debt Ratios

You can qualify with a higher total monthly debt for an FHA loan than you can for a conventional loan.

Higher Seller Contributions

There is a higher allowable seller contribution on FHA loans than there is on many conventional loans—6 percent as opposed to 3 percent. This means that you can negotiate for the seller to pay most, if not all, closing costs.

Conventional Fixed Rate Loans

A fixed-rate mortgage may be an ideal option if you:

  • Are concerned that interests rates will increase and you want the predictability of a fixed interest rate.
  • Want to be able to determine what your payment will be for years to come in order to plan out your budget.
  • Expect to own the home for many years.

Adjustable Rate Loans

An adjustable rate loan may be ideal if you:

  • Have a plan in place to move to a different home before the end of the initial rate period.
  • Are certain your income will increase enough in the future to cover the increase of the mortgage interest rate.
  • Require a lower monthly payment than what you can expect from a fixed-rate mortgage.

VA Loans

The VA Loan program is the most powerful home loan program on the market for many veterans, service members and military families. These flexible, government-backed loans come with significant benefits that open the doors of homeownership to veterans who might otherwise struggle to obtain financing.

No Down Payment

Saving money and building credit can be difficult for service members who are constantly on the move. With the VA Loan, qualified borrowers can finance 100 percent of the home’s value without putting down a dime.

No Private Mortgage Insurance

With a VA Loan, there is no PMI. This is because the federal government backs all VA Loans and assumes the risk on behalf of the borrower that is typically covered by the PMI.

Competitive Interest Rates

Pair that lower interest rate with the ability to purchase a home with no money down and no private mortgage insurance and the savings start adding up significantly.

Basic Allowance for Housing

Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) is a significant benefit for qualified active military members. Lenders can count your Basic Allowance for Housing as effective income, which means you can use BAH to pay some or all of your monthly mortgage costs. BAH varies based on your pay grade, your geographic location and your number of dependents.

Jumbo Loan Programs

A jumbo loan mortgage is any home loan that is more than the conforming limit of $417,000 according to Fannie Mae guidelines on conventional mortgages. FHA mortgages however have upper mortgage limits that are set for each county starting at the lowest loan limit of $271,050. Since most banks do not have programs available for jumbo loan mortgage products they have become one of our specialties. Our Jumbo Mortgages are also available as a portfolio product for expanded guidelines outside of conforming limits. We have several jumbo loan mortgage programs that will put you in control of your mortgage investment.

Rural Housing

Testimonials

Premier Nationwide Lending has completely exceeded our expectations in the home loan process. We are building our 3rd home and they have gone above and beyond to ensure the best loan product for our needs, as well as saved us a lot of money! When the builder’s lender said a loan was not available, Premier Nationwide Lending’s loan officer worked hard to find that it was indeed available and made it a reality for our family. Words cannot accurately express our gratitude for having been introduced to Premier. Our loan officer was a complete pleasure to work with and someone you can trust with such an important decision!

Mark & Deanna H. - Homebuyer

I’ve been a successful Realtor for 28 years with one of the largest firms in the country. I met a loan officer with Premier several years ago at a seminar and was very impressed with her knowledge of buyer assistance programs, etc. I referred her to several of my first time Buyers and found her to be excellent. Every client that I referred her to was pleased with the process and the service and spoke very highly of her. Her communication skills, her attention to detail, her knowledge of the process, her commitment to getting the job done in a timely manner cannot be matched. Her staff and her processer are the best. I give her name to all of my Buyers, in all price ranges, and highly recommend they talk with her about their new purchase. I have worked with many loan officers over the years and Premier is the best I’ve EVER worked with.

Vanja G. - Homebuyer

Thank you so much, Premier Nationwide Lending, for helping my family move into our dream home! Your hard work and dedication speaks volumes about your personal character. Although we never met in person, you still made a wonderful imprint in our hearts. Thank you for the late nights, patience, timeliness, guidance and thorough explanations throughout our first home buying experience. We definitely couldn’t have done it without you! Premier Nationwide Lending has a “Genuine” on their team, who we just so happened to be referred to. God is Good!

Carlo & Yvonne S. - Homebuyer

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with Premier Nationwide Lending! I am still in awe of how easy these individuals made the loan process. All my questions and concerns were addressed in a timely manner with a wealth of expert knowledge. I was given the same personal attention one would expect from a local lender. You would have never known that I was working with a lender half a state away. I can say, without a doubt, that when the time comes to buy a new home I will return to Premier Nationwide Lending.
