Getting a mortgage for a HUD or VA home is not much different than getting a mortgage for a traditional property for sale.  It is easy to confuse a HUD or VA home with a HUD or VA loan.  A HUD or VA home (continued below)

is one that has been foreclosed on by the government, and is being offered for sale.  HUD and VA loans are special loan programs backed by the federal government.  In the case of HUD, it is the Department of Housing and Urban Development that administers the loan program.  In the case of VA, it is the Department of Veterans Affairs.

It is entirely possible that you may qualify for a HUD or VA loan on a HUD or VA home, but most homebuyers opt for a traditional mortgage on these types of properties, unless they happen to fit the qualifications for a HUD/VA loan.  More information is available on our FAQ page.

Mortgages - what's hot?

Right now, with declining property values and questionable actions in the financial markets, borrowers are shunning the once popular adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs), and heading towards low 30 year fixed rate mortgages. Rates are at or near historic lows, and with excellent credit, borrowers may find terms as low as 4.5%.
