What is the difference between a conventional loan and a FHA loan?
Conventional loans are a government-sponsored loan program allowing a down payment as low as 5% that has the best rates and terms for our members.
FHA loans, are government insured loans, which allows for a down payment as low as 3.5% and are more flexible and forgiving of past credit issues.
What is a USDA loan?
USDA loans are loans that allow for 100% financing providing that the property and the borrower qualify for the program. Property eligibility is driven by the property location and the borrower eligibility is driven by maximum income limits determined on a county by county basis. In the Interra market area, this option provides a real opportunity to become a homeowner with a minimum of funds needed at closing.
What percent do you have to put down for a construction loan?
At Interra we offer two one-time close construction loan products, and both require a minimum of 10% equity. This amount can be satisfied with cash at closing, but also by the equity in the land value if already owned by the member.
What is the lowest down payment for a conventional mortgage?
Conventional lending standard requirement for down payment of a mortgage is 5% of the purchase price. There is a special program (Home Ready) that will allow for a down payment of only 3%, but the program has underwriting rules regarding First Time Buyers and income limitations to qualify. An Interra mortgage loan originator will be able to explain the differences and help to place you into the best loan option.
