Mortgage products are loans that are used to finance the purchase of a home or other real estate. There are several different types of mortgage products, each with its own set of features and benefits. Here are the most common types of mortgage products:

  1. Fixed-Rate Mortgage: A fixed-rate mortgage is a mortgage in which the interest rate remains the same for the entire term of the loan. This means that your monthly mortgage payment will remain the same throughout the life of the loan. Fixed-rate mortgages are popular because they provide predictable monthly payments and protection against rising interest rates.

  2. Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM): An adjustable-rate mortgage is a mortgage in which the interest rate changes periodically based on a specific index. ARMs typically have lower initial interest rates than fixed-rate mortgages, but they are riskier because your monthly payment could increase if interest rates rise.

  3. Government-Backed Mortgages: Government-backed mortgages are loans that are guaranteed by the government, such as FHA loans and VA loans. These mortgages are designed to make homeownership more accessible for individuals who may not qualify for traditional mortgages.

  4. Jumbo Mortgages: Jumbo mortgages are loans that exceed the conforming loan limit set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. These mortgages are typically used to finance high-value properties and require a larger down payment and higher credit score than traditional mortgages.

  5. Interest-Only Mortgages: Interest-only mortgages are mortgages in which you only pay the interest on the loan for a set period of time, typically five to ten years. After the interest-only period ends, you must begin paying both principal and interest. Interest-only mortgages are riskier than traditional mortgages because your monthly payment will increase once the interest-only period ends.

  6. Reverse Mortgages: Reverse mortgages are mortgages that allow homeowners over the age of 62 to convert the equity in their home into cash. The loan is repaid when the homeowner moves out of the home or passes away.

In summary, there are many different types of mortgage products available to homebuyers. Choosing the right mortgage product depends on your financial situation, goals, and preferences. Work with a Loan Officer from Parada Mortgage to determine which mortgage product is best for you.
