Loan Programs

The following is a partial list of programs offered by BWA Mortgage with a brief description of the key elements of each. For a complete list of the programs that we offer, please contact us at 818-952-2726 .

Purchase Loans

A popular loan type, purchase money loans have fixed rate mortgage options (your rate and payment never change) as well as adjustable rate mortgages (After the initial fixed rate period your interest rate will typically change once a year every remaining year of the loan). Contact us for details on down payment requirements. Available terms generally range from 15 years, 20 years and 30 years.

Refinance Mortgage Loans

Homeowners looking to decrease their interest rate may consider refinancing. A refinance calls for the homeowner to obtain another mortgage loan. Those funds are then used to pay off the original mortgage loan and the homeowner is then bound by the terms of the new mortgage. Depending on your situation a refinance loan could be a great option. Along with decreasing your interest rate, refinance loans can also help you switch from an ARM to a FRM, and in some cases reduce your loan term.

FHA Mortgage Loans

FHA loans are private loans insured by the federal government. These loans are popular with borrowers who don't have enough funds to pay a traditional 20 percent down payment because they only require 3 percent down to qualify. Those who choose these loans are required to pay mortgage insurance which slightly increases their monthly payments. Lenders who wish to offer these loans must be approved by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Please contact us today to find out if a FHA loan is right for you.

Reverse Mortgage Loans

Reverse mortgage loans, also known as reverse equity loans, are only available to homeowners 65 or older. Like its name indicates, this program pays the homeowner either a one-time large payout or monthly installment. Once the loan term expires the house either becomes the property of the lender or the house can be sold to repay the debt. {FORMS_REVERSEMORTGAGECALC} Reverse mortgage loans are great options for seniors looking to increase their monthly incomes. Contact us for more details.

VA Mortgage Loans

These loans are only available to these individuals for their own primary residences and cannot exceed a $417,000 loan limit.
