Some of our popular Purchase programs:
- VA: Possibly the best purchase loan in existence, the VA’s purchase loan program allows eligible borrowers to purchase a home with as little as a 0% down-payment. This program also features forgiving underwriting guidelines that allow borrowers with higher debt-to-income ratios and/or lower credit scores to still purchase the home of their dreams. Like all of our loan programs, our VA loans feature a super low rate.
- FHA: This program is popular with first-time home buyers as it allows for eligible borrowers to purchase a home with as little as a 3.5% down payment (the lowest down payment available outside the VA Loan) and it generally has less restrictive underwriting requirements. The FHA even allows for you to use “gift” funds from a family member for your down-payment.
- Conventional: Conventional loans have historically required a 20% down-payment, but not any more. Our portfolio allows borrowers to buy their primary home using a Conventional loan with only a 5% down-payment. No PMI options? Check. Super low rates? Of course. FAST closings? Absolutely.
Yes, you absolutely can use us for your loan.
Just give your real estate agent’s contact information to me and I will take it from there. Your real estate agent will love working with me!
Great question! We process all loans at our headquarters in Lenexa, Kansas (a suburb of Kansas City) and we work with title companies in your area for title and closing services. So you will always close in your home or office or at a title company office location close to you.
Further, our central location helps us do the great loans that Affinity Mortgage is known for. We don’t have a fancy office tower. We don’t advertise during the Super Bowl. Why? Because those things are expensive and would prohibit us from doing some of the best loans on the planet.
It is strongly recommended as there are several benefits to getting pre-approved. For starters, you will know how much house you can buy. For example: If you are looking at a $400,000 house but aren’t sure if you can afford that much… the simple pre-approval process will show you just how much you can spend.
Another benefit to getting Pre-Approved is that you are making yourself a more desirable buyer. To put it another way: If you were selling your home, would you rather accept an offer from a buyer who has spoken to a lender and received a pre-approval for their loan … or would you rather accept an offer from a buyer who hasn’t talked to anyone?
Get pre-approved today by submitting the “Rate Quote!” form. Note that being pre-approved does not guarantee loan approval; loans are underwritten once a purchase contract has been signed by all parties.
VA loans: No. There is never PMI with a VA loan. Yes, VA loans are quite wonderful!
FHA loans: Yes. FHA loans do require a PMI payment until you refinance out of the loan or until it is paid off.
Conventional loans: We have several options for eliminating the monthly PMI payment on a conventional loan — even if you have less than 20% equity. Our “No Monthly PMI Conventional Loan” options are very popular. Submit a “Rate Quote!” form to find out more.
Yes. We have a very deep portfolio of loan options for second homes or investment properties. Simply submit a “Rate Quote!” form to explore the options available for you.
Yes, there are several options available that can pay your closing costs.
For example: Some borrowers will negotiate to have the seller (the seller of the property they are buying) cover these expenses. Or some borrowers will use funds from the bank (the bank rebate) to pay their closing costs. Gifts from family members can also be used in some situations.
Of course there are terms and conditions and limitations that apply — submit a “Rate Quote!” from (above) to find out what options may be available to you.
Each loan program dictates the down-payment amount that is required.
For VA loans, there is no down-payment required (0% down). For FHA, the minimum is 3.5%. And for Conventional, the minimum down-payment amount is 3%.
Limitations apply to these requirements, depending upon your particular loan scenario.
