Types of Loans and Resources

Conventional Loan: Conventional loans have established guidelines for borrower credit scores, income requirements and minimum down payments. Most conventional loans require a minimum of 5 percent down and have either fixed or adjustable interest rates. Typical fixed interest rate loans have a term of 15, 20 or 30 years. A shorter-term loan usually results in a lower interest rate.

Montana Veterans Home Loan Program: Created by the 2011 Montana Legislature and funded by $15 million of the Coal Tax Trust Fund, this program is designed to assist Montana National Guard and federally-qualified eligible veterans and their families achieve the American dream of owning and living in their own homes. The benefit of the program is a fixed-rate, 30 year mortgage loan at 1% lower than either the FNMA or MBOH posted interest rate. There are no income limitations, but $2,500 minimum investment required by borrower towards the loan amount.   

Regular VA Home Loan Program: The Veterans Administration (VA), insures the loan so your lender can offer you a better deal. Down payment is -0-% of the purchase price.  The closing costs and fees can be paid by the seller.

FHA Loan: The Federal Housing Administration (FHA), which is part of HUD, insures the loan so your lender can offer you a better deal. Down payment can be as low as 3.5% of the purchase price. Most of your closing costs and fees can be paid by the seller.
