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.

Residential Mortgage Loan Originators

Originally I wanted to be a nurse; after all, isn’t that the dream of most little girls? I really wanted to help people and thought this would be the best way. I was first exposed to the mortgage industry as a clerk – working toward my nursing goal behind the scenes. I rapidly became enamored with how crucial the mortgage service industry is in the lives of people, helping them in a very surreal way – with their finances! Nursing slowly took a backseat as I realized the hands-on learning I was experiencing as a loan clerk could be put to immediate use in the lives of folks who desired to find a safe place for their family to call home.

I have now been a part of the mortgage lending industry for over 23 years. I do not regret my decision one bit. I moved from loan clerk to loan processor very quickly, surpassing all branch volume expectations and was recognized as Top Processing Supervisor.

Being so enthusiastic with lending; I began originating loans and endeavored in my personal production goals. I feel I have a unique passion for people and their desire for security and homeownership. You see for me, it doesn’t stop at simply the client buying a home. I look at the entire family financial picture, analyze their objectives and ensure that this new mortgage payment and all that comes with it will provide peace of mind & confidence for the future. Because in the end, a beautiful home is no fun on a Friday night if all you can do for dinner is eat PB&J while staring at the same television screen!

“It is really all about the client and their family. By removing myself from the equation, I am able to focus on their objectives; not merely for the home itself but for their overall financial goals. This is crucial if I hope to earn trust that deserves loyalty! It is more than just a house; it is their home and family’s very own place of security”.

This is how I developed a truism that I take deeply to heart - “It’s Your Home. It’s My Reputation. I CARE about Both!”

I am honored to say that my efforts & dedication to the right things have paid off. I was rated the top 1% of Mortgage Professionals in the State of Texas by Texas Monthly Magazine four years running – 2011, 12, 13, & now in 2014. I take this tribute seriously and am blessed by the recognition!

I am committed to providing my clients with the highest quality home loans combined with great interest rates and sensible closing costs. No matter where in Texas you desire to call home – be it Clear Lake, League City, Friendswood, Deer Park, Pasadena, Pearland or anywhere in this Great State – I am ready to help ease your concerns and provide you with the honest answers and education you need to make the best decision for your family!
