Colonial National Mortgage Loan Program
Loan Types

Colonial National Mortgage offers a wide variety of loan programs with one that will certainly fit your needs, including FHA, VA, Conventional, Jumbo Loans, Adjustable Rate Loans, Construction Loans and Refinance. Below you'll find some of the programs commonly offered today. Characteristics of each loan program are unique, so consult your Loan Officer for details on each one, as well as special programs offered.

What kind of loan is best for you?

To help determine the best loan program for you, consider the following:

How important is payment certainty?
If knowing that your payment will be the same every month is important, consider a fixed rate loan.

How important is rapid equity buildup?
If you want to build equity quickly, consider a shorter amortization period, such as a 15-year, fixed rate mortgage. You can also build equity faster with our Interest Saver Program.

Do you anticipate increasing or stable income?
If income growth is anticipated, you could take advantage of a lower start rate on an Adjustable Rate Mortgage or a temporary buy-down. Other factors to consider include:
  • ability to qualify at market rates for loan amount selected
  • anticipated term of occupancy
  • possibility of significant rate change
  • existence of up-front costs

Fixed Rate Mortgages

Fixed Rate

  • 15- and 30- year terms
  • FHA, VA and Conventional and Balloons
  • Interest rate does not change
  • Principal and interest (P&I) does not change
  • Fixed rate mortgages fully amortize over a defined period of time and are paid in full at the end of the loan term
  • The shorter the term, the faster equity is built and the loan is paid off
VA Loans

Almost any lender can do a VA loan for qualified Veterans, so why use a specialist? If you've dealt with military personnel or government agencies, you know the value of someone who knows the forms, the rules and regulations. Colonial National Mortgage has expert staff prepared to guide you through the VA loan process from start to finish.

  • 100% Financing
  • No traditional mortgage insurance required
  • Funding fee waived to those with VA disability of 20% or more
  • Seller can pay all of closing costs and some other costs
  • Faster refinancing
Fixed Rate Balloons

  • Principal and interest do not change
  • Regular monthly P&I payments are based on a 30 year amortization, while the unpaid balance (balloon) is due at the end of a shorter, predetermined term, typically 5, 7 or 10 years
  • Interest rate is typically less than fixed rate loans
  • Most borrowers anticipate refinancing or selling prior to the end of the balloon term
Fixed Rate with Temporary Buy-Down
  • Borrowers or the seller may pay to temporarily "buy down", or lower, the interest rate
  • Decreased interest rate reduces the monthly payment
  • Lower interest rate may help borrowers qualify more easily; qualifying factors may vary
  • Interest rate/payment is typically reduced for 1, 2 or 3 years

Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs)

Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs)
  • There is potential for the interest rate and payment to fluctuate
  • ARMs transfer to borrowers a portion of the risk associated with a changing economy
  • In exchange for sharing the risk, ARMs offer borrowers initial interest rates that are substantially lower than fixed rate mortgages
  • The lower interest rate may help borrowers qualify more easily; qualifying factors may vary

Refinance

Refinance

Find out if it's the right time to refinance! You may be able to lower your monthly payment and/or reduce the time it takes to pay off your loan. Either or both can save you a lot of money. Here are some important reasons to consider refinancing:
  • Get a lower mortgage rate and reduce interest costs
  • Convert an adjustable rate mortgage to a more secure fixed rate mortgage
  • Consolidate your first and second mortgages into a mortgage with a lower rate
  • Pay off installment debts or credit cards
The advantages we offer for your refinancing needs include:
  • Competitive rates and reduced fees
  • Easy online application
  • Conventional, FHA, and VA mortgage programs
  • Guidance and advice from an experienced loan professional

Jumbo Loans

Jumbo Loans

A jumbo mortgage exceeds the industry-standard definition of a conventional conforming loan, which is currently $417,000. However, some upper limits of jumbo loans are set on a county-by-county basis. Your Loan Officer is well versed in the various guidelines used to underwrite a jumbo loan and can guide you through the application process.

Construction Loans

Construction Loans

The Single Close Construction Loan from Colonial National Mortgage combines the interim and permanent financing into one loan with one application, one set of fees and one closing.

Unlike traditional loans for new home construction that require re-qualifying and duplicate paperwork, the Single Close Loan eliminates these steps to save you time, trouble and thousands of dollars in interest costs.
  • Enjoy a full 12 months of interest-only payments
  • No need to sell your current home before moving into your new home, so there is no need to move twice
  • No credit updates or re-qualifying. No hassle of collecting paperwork a second time.
Borrowers may choose from several loans programs, many at rates below what is normally charged for interim construction financing. Lot equity or items borrowers have paid in advance may be used as credit toward the down payment. In many cases, lot equity is sufficient to cover the down payment completely.

Home Equity Loans

Home Equity Loans

Home equity loans offer a wide variety of amortization periods (length of time to pay it back), more choices for people with less-than-perfect credit, fixed rates so your rate can never go up and the interest paid may be tax deductible.*

*Consult your tax advisor.

Reverse Mortgages

Reverse Mortgages

A reverse mortgage is a home loan that homeowners at least 62 years of age can obtain to access the equity in their home.

Reverse mortgages are called such because you borrow money from a lender and the lender makes monthly payments to you, rather than making monthly payments to the lender. A lump sum option is available as well. All interest is paid at the end of the loan, rather than at the beginning.

What are some of the benefits of a reverse mortgage from Colonial National?
  • Strengthen your personal and financial independence
  • Help pay for health care or other needs
  • You can never lose your home in foreclosure as long as you maintain the property tax and insurance payments, and any homeowner's association dues
  • The loan is only paid or required to be paid when the house is sold by you or your heirs, or all borrowers move out of the house
  • A Reverse Mortgage does not affect your Medicare or Social Security benefits
  • No income requirements: the homeowner does not need to be employed and the loan is not qualified based on income
  • Funds received from a Reverse Mortgage are not subject to income tax and do not affect Social Security benefits
For more information and a consultation, contact our Reverse Mortgage specialist.
