Homebuyers Choice Loan
Navy Federal Credit Union offers a loan that is first-time homebuyer friendly called Homebuyers Choice Loan. This loan offers 100% financing. A homebuyer does not have to provide a down-payment. Unlike most loans that require 20% down to avoid a buyer paying Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) this loan is does not have that requirement with the 100% lender financing. This loan comes with a fixed interest rate which means that monthly mortgage won’t change due to an increase in interest rates. A seller can contribute up to 6% towards a buyers closing cost. This loan is ideal for a homeowner with low home equity looking to refinance at 97% which means the homeowner would need to leave 3% equity in the home. These loans come in 30 year and 30 year jumbo loan terms. A jumbo loan is a loan over a certain amount. Hawaii and Alaska consider any loan roughly over $820,000 as a jumbo loan. A homebuyer can buy down their discount points with this loan as well.
