LOAN PROGRAMS

Homes come in all sizes and styles. When it comes to home loans, there are nearly as many options. At Supreme Lending, we’re happy to explain all the details and help you make a smart choice.

Conventional Loans

These traditional mortgages are popular for a good reason: Stable monthly payments makes it easier to plan your financial future.
Learn More

In an uncertain world, it’s good to have things you can count on. A fixed-rate mortgage features stable monthly payments, making it easier to plan your long-term finances.

There’s a reason Conventional Loans have been popular for generations – by spreading out payments over a longer time period, they make homeownership affordable to large numbers of people. At Supreme Lending, we offer a wide range of repayment terms, allowing you to dial in a monthly payment that you can comfortably manage.

  • Fixed-rate loans
  • Repayment terms of 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 years
  • Down payments as low as 3% (Down payment can be a gift from a family member)
  • Loan limit in most U.S. counties is $726,200. In most high-cost areas, the limit is $1,089,300. (Buying a more expensive house? See our Jumbo Loans.)
  • Minimum credit score of 620, in most cases
  • Easy application process
  • Personal assistance from friendly loan officers
  • Annual interest payments on home loans may be tax-deductible; consult your financial counselor

FHA Loans

FHA Loans
Popular with first-time homebuyers, these government-backed loans feature low down payments and relaxed credit requirements
Learn More

You don’t need to save a small fortune to afford a new home. FHA mortgages require lower down payments and include several other financial advantages.

Federal Housing Administration loans were part of FDR’s New Deal. Today, they’re still a great deal because they break down two big barriers to home ownership. You don’t need to put 10% or 20% down on your new home, and you don’t need a near-perfect credit score. Let a Supreme Lending Mortgage Professional explain how – with a little help from Uncle Sam – you might qualify for these very affordable mortgages.

  • Excellent choice for many first-time homebuyers
  • Low down payments, with a minimum of 3.5% (mortgage insurance is required)
  • Credit scores as low as 580 accepted
  • Gift funds from family members, friends or employers can be used for 100% of the down payment or closing costs
  • Fixed-rate and adjustable-rate mortgage options are available
  • Refinancing options also available

Worried about dealing with the government? Relax. It’s not the FHA that’s lending you money. The agency simply offers guarantees to lenders like Supreme Lending. The entire application process will be handled by one of our friendly Mortgage Professionals.

Condo Loans

Looking for a condo lifestyle? We can help you there. Whether you’re looking at a primary residence, vacation home or investment property, Supreme’s condo loans provide the answer.

Keep in mind, condo loans are subject to different rules and qualifications than single-family homes. Underwriters consider a variety of factors, including but not limited to the property’s age, structural integrity, grounds and amenities, as well as the overall finances of the building.

Warrantable Condos can be financed and underwritten as a conventional mortgage, as long as they meet these requirements:

  • No entity can own more than two units in projects consisting of 5-20 units, or 20% of units in projects with 21 or more units
  • At least 50% of the units are owner-occupied
  • Less than 15% of total units are 60 days or more in arrears on homeowners’ association (HOA) dues
  • The HOA is not named in any lawsuits
  • Commercial space accounts for 35% or less of the total building square footage

Non-Warrantable Condos don’t meet the above criteria and are more difficult to buy and sell because Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac consider them high-risk. Non-traditional financing is often needed for these types of condos. Contact us for details.

Refinancing an existing loan can leave your finances in a better place. Our Mortgage Professionals will gladly guide you through the fast and easy process.

How can refinancing benefit you? It depends on the details of your current mortgage and your long-term financial goals. But here are a few common reasons why people come to Supreme Lending to refinance their mortgage.

  • Lock in lower interest rates, which can reduce your interest charges over the short term and the long haul of your home loan
  • Change the repayment period, which can result in smaller monthly payments
  • Eliminate debt more quickly, freeing up money for other needs
  • Borrow against the equity they’ve built up in their home – known as “cashing out” – to gain funds for home improvements and other life expenses
