VA Home Loans

The VA loan program is a robust mortgage loan program. HighTechLending Inc loves to educate and work with our veterans.

Did you know a VA loan offered through HighTechLending Inc provides qualified veterans the ability to purchase a home with no down payment? Other loan programs require small down payments, and are subject to mortgage insurance (MI).

HighTechLending Inc does not charge an application fee on a VA loan. However, there are fees associated with VA loans – please call us today to speak with a mortgage loan originator and obtain a Loan Estimate . HighTechLending Inc will provide you with information on your credit score if you authorize us to pull your credit and, if you qualify, pre-approval documentation so that you can quickly go shopping for a new home with confidence.

Thirty-Year Fixed Rate Mortgage

The traditional 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has a constant interest rate and monthly principal and interest payments that never change*. This may be a good choice if you plan to stay in your home for seven years or longer. If you plan to move within seven years, then adjustable-rate loans are usually cheaper. As a rule of thumb, it may be harder to qualify for fixed-rate loans than for adjustable rate loans. When interest rates are low, fixed-rate loans are generally not that much more expensive than adjustable-rate mortgages and may be a better deal in the long run, because you can lock in the rate for the life of your loan.

Fifteen-Year Fixed Rate Mortgage

This loan is fully amortized over a 15-year period and features monthly principal and interest payments that never change*. It offers all the advantages of the 30-year loan, plus a lower interest rate. The disadvantage is that, with a 15-year loan, you commit to a higher monthly payment. Many borrowers opt for a 30-year fixed-rate loan and voluntarily make larger payments that will pay off their loan in 15 years. This approach is often safer than committing to a higher monthly payment, since the difference in interest rates isn’t that great.

Hybrid ARM (3/1 ARM, 5/1 ARM, 7/1 ARM)

These increasingly popular ARMS—also called 3/1, 5/1 or 7/1—can offer the best of both worlds: lower interest rates (like ARMs) and a fixed payment for a longer period of time than most adjustable rate loans. For example, a “5/1 loan” has a fixed monthly payment and interest for the first five years and then turns into a traditional adjustable-rate loan, based on then-current rates for the remaining 25 years. It’s a good choice for people who expect to move (or refinance) before or shortly after the adjustment occurs.

Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM)

ARMs may be a better loan option for you if a 15 or 30 year fixed are not meeting your needs. Contact one of our loan officers at (866)714-2040 to discuss your options.

Disclaimer:
A loan with an annual percentage rate that may fluctuate in the future (for example, based on market conditions) is a variable-rate transaction. A variable-rate plan involves one or more future interest rates that cannot be determined at consummation.

2/1 Buy Down Mortgage

Qualify at below market rates to borrow more. Starting interest rate increases by 1% at the end of the first year and adjusts again by another 1% at the end of the second year. It then remains at a fixed interest rate for the remainder of the loan term. Borrowers often refinance at the end of the second year to obtain the best long-term rates. However, keeping the loan in place even for three full years or more will keep their average interest rate in line with the original market conditions.
