Our recommended lenders  

When you make the decision to become a homeowner, there are a series of additional decisions that you’ll need to make before you reach that final goal and cross the threshold of your new front door. One of the most important decisions in that series is which type of mortgage loan you’re going to pursue in order to buy the house.

There are several different types of mortgage loans, and it’s useful to understand your options going in so that you can decide which one will be best for your financial future as a homeowner. The professionals you’ll meet will certainly explain every choice you may have and help you decide which one will be the best for you.  

If you've never bought a home before, a number of mortgage loan options can be overwhelming. What's the difference between a conventional loan and a government loan, and should you go with an adjustable-rate or fixed-rate mortgage? Even if you have bought a home before, if it's been several years, then you might not remember everything you'll want to know before making a decision about which loan type is going to be best for your situation.

There's good news, though: it won't take long to get a handle on the different types of loans available to you and figure out which one best fits your circumstances. All thanks to experts who are always happy to explain the differences between different kinds of mortgage loans and eventually support you when choosing the one most suitable for your finances.
