At Somerset Lending, we offer many loan types with options to suit every situation.
We’ll consider your down payment, monthly payment goal, and other factors like zoning and equity to determine which loan type will best meet your needs, all while securing the best rate and lowest closing costs.
Conventional loans are ideal for borrowers with a more established credit, employment, and savings history. While 20% down allows a homeowner to avoid PMI, Somerset can offer no-PMI options with as little as 5% down.
If your mortgage is owned by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, you may be eligible to refinance through the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), designed to give you lower interest rates and a more stable, affordable mortgage.
FHA loans tend to be more flexible mortgage options, typically requiring only 3.5% down and a credit score as low as a 600. All down payment money can be gifted from family, and family members not occupying property can co-sign to assist with low or hard-to-prove income. These loans can help you move up to a larger home while converting your current home to a rental. Somerset also offers FHA streamline refinances without appraisals.
