Loans & Programs

One-Size-Fits-All Doesn't have to apply to your mortgage

We can tailor your home mortgage to your specific situation because we have options. Which means you have options. Your Loan Officer will provide loan products options that work in your best interest.

Purchasing and Refinancing

Conventional mortgages are loans that private companies insure. These loans meet the funding criteria set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Prestige Home Mortgage offers several conventional loan types:

A fixed-rate mortgage has an interest rate that stays the same for the entire life of your loan. This offers a predictable monthly payment for 10 – 30 years.
  • Interest rate security
  • Monthly payment stability
  • Best for buyers planning to stay in their homes for a long time
Adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs) may allow you to lock in a low interest rate that can increase over time. A hybrid ARM offers a fixed period (3-10 years) followed by a yearly change to the interest rate. Fractions, such as 5/1 often represent hybrid ARMs. This means the first-rate reset takes place after five years and continues to reset each year.
  • Low starting interest rate
  • Lower monthly payments during the initial term
  • Best for buyers planning to keep their loan for a shorter period
Jumbo loans have higher loan amounts not allowed for standard-conforming programs. This will enable borrowers to buy a higher-priced home with affordable down payment.
  • Fixed and ARM options
  • Loans up to $3 Million
  • Best for borrowers who are in the market for higher-priced homes
