,For a limited time we have a new conventional purchase loan requiring just 1% down. Another 2% down is given as a down payment grant resulting in a full 3% down payment for your primary residence. Max income limit is 80% of the HUD median income of the area you wish to purchase in. For example, in the Denver Metro area the maximum annual income is $94,240.00. No monthly mortgage insurance is required resulting in a lower monthly payment. Maximum loan amount is $350,000.00 and the minimum middle credit score must be at 620 or above. In the Denver Metro area, putting just the 1% down, would max out the purchase price at $360,500.00, for your single-family home, town home, or condo. Interested in learning more?

I've always encouraged people to get at least three different lender quotes before making a decision. I thought it might be helpful to do a comparison between a loan for $400,000 for 30 years with a rate of 6.250% and then the same loan at a rate of 6.375%. The payment increase going from 6.250% to 6.375% is $32.61 per month. Depending on your circumstances that might not seem too bad but if you look over the life of the loan that equates to $11,739.45 in additional interest---WOW! A lower rate and lower payment will be beneficial in most cases but especially for the First Time Homebuyer. We work with most all Real Estate Agents here in Colorado. So do your research and let us give you a quote by calling (303) 650-9400 or clicking on "Quick Quote" from our home page. I've got a feeling you'll be glad you did!

First time homebuyers and homebuyers can benefit from a new program referred to as a 2-1 Buydown fixed rate program. This means that the first year of the loan your rate will be 2% below the current effective rate and then the second year it will be 1% below the current effective rate. The lower rates result in lower payments for the first 2 years which can amount to a significant amount of savings. The 2-1 Buydown is funded by the seller, realtor, or a combination of both, so it is not coming out of your pocket. If you have a scenario you would like me to analyze or if you would like to know more about the 2-1 Buydown fixed rate program simply give me a call at (303) 650-9400.
With home loans the middle credit score of the 3 major credit bureaus is "King". This number has been referred to as "FICO" score, middle score, or simply your credit score. It will help determine the programs available, the interest rate you pay, and even the amount of monthly mortgage insurance you pay on a conventional loan if purchasing a home with less than 20% down. As you probably already know the higher your score the more favorable terms you'll be offered. This is where the savings can amount to thousands of dollars over the life of your loan. Can you improve your credit score? Yes you can in most cases, by utilizing our FREE Credit Upgrade Program for home loans! Rather than waiting 3 months or longer for your "FICO" to improve we have seen results in as little as 3 business days but each persons situation is different so the time to completion and results may vary. We have had great success so I would encourage anyone with a "FICO" score below 740 to inquire as the savings may be substantial. Simply give me a call at (303) 650-9400! This is a limited time offer.
