TYPES OF MORTGAGE LOANS

Buying a home is one of the largest purchases you may make in your lifetime.
That’s why it’s important to fully understand your mortgage loan options before signing on the dotted line.

SPECIALTY LOANS

First-Time Homebuyer Program

UMB offers a program to assist qualifying first-time home buyers achieve their dreams of homeownership. We offer assistance on mortgages allowing you to borrow up to 100% of the purchase price of your home.

Professional Loans

Additional Mortgage Options

Conventional

Conventional loans are available through two government sponsored enterprises—Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Conventional loans are now available with only 3% down payment and private mortgage insurance would apply for down payments less than 20%. Conventional is the most common financing requested.

Veterans Affairs (VA) Loans

VA loans are mortgage loans guaranteed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). VA loans offer long-term financing to eligible American veterans or their surviving spouses who meet certain qualifications.

United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Loans

The Rural Housing Service (RHS) is an administrative division within the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that manages loan programs focusing on rural housing for lenders to offer to their communities. USDA loans offer assistance to low-income borrowers in rural areas and guarantees loans that meet RHS requirements.

Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Loans

Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans are guaranteed by the federal government and offer options for those who do not have the assets to meet the conventional mortgage loan down payment requirements. FHA loans also have more flexible qualification requirements, which make them attractive to those who may not qualify for conventional mortgages.

Jumbo Loans

A jumbo mortgage loan has a loan amount that exceeds conventional loan parameters and is designed to accommodate higher-value homes.
 

AMORTIZATION OPTIONS

Fixed-rate Mortgage

With a fixed-rate mortgage, your loan terms will include an interest rate that remains static, or fixed, for the duration of the loan. The advantage of a fixed interest rate mortgage loan is that you will always know your principal and interest payment will not change (escrowed items such as taxes and insurance may change annually therefore the total payment may change). There are also special purchase programs for low-to-moderate income borrowers that allow for down payments as low as 3 percent.

Adjustable-rate Mortgage

An adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) loan is exactly as it sounds: a type of mortgage loan with an interest rate that can fluctuate and change based on the current market and indexed rates. ARM Loans generally offer lower initial rates and monthly payments when compared to fixed rate products. The lower rates on ARM loans appeal to borrowers who anticipate rising personal incomes as they are prepared to handle potential rate increases.
 

All home loans are subject to credit and property approval. Not all loan types are available in all states or for all amounts. Other restrictions and limitations apply. Please contact a UMB Mortgage Loan Originator or Community Mortgage Banker for more information.

Questions about Mortgages? UMB has answers.

    How much mortgage you can afford may be different from how much mortgage is right for you. It’s important to look at your total financial picture:

    Estimate your monthly loan payment with the UMB mortgage loan calculator
    There are several variables that impact a monthly payment: loan amount, mortgage interest rate and term of the mortgage (how many years it will take to pay off the mortgage).

    Mortgage payments also typically include monthly allocations of property taxes, hazard insurance, and (if applicable) private mortgage insurance (PMI).
     

    Take a realistic look at your income, lifestyle and priorities
    To estimate how much total home loan you can afford, a general guideline is to double your gross annual income. But that’s a broad generalization. You might have other financial priorities, like travelling or paying off debt.

    Maybe your priority is owning a larger home or living in a specific location. In this case, taking out a bigger home loan, still within your budget, may be valuable to you.
     

    Speak to a mortgage loan officer
    We’re here to support your homeownership goals and answer any questions. Feel free to reach out to the UMB mortgage team.

    Refinancing your home mortgage could get you a lower interest rate. Or it might allow you to switch from an adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) to a fixed-rate mortgage or to change the term of your loan. 

    If you’ve owned your home for a while, “cash-out” refinance of your mortgage may help you pay for home improvements or pay down debt with higher interest rates. 
     

    Refinancing replaces your original loan with a new loan 

    You pay the new refinanced loan according to the rate and terms of the new agreement. This may make sense for you, depending on how many months the ongoing payment savings will take to cover your upfront closing costs. 

    Analyze different refinance rates and scenarios using UMB’s Mortgage Refinance Calculator
     

    Feel confident in your refinancing decision 

    Refinancing entails much of the same fees and paperwork as an original home loan. As with the original mortgage interest rate, getting the best refinance rate today depends on a few factors, including your credit history. 

    To feel confident in your decision, it’s important to understand the basics of mortgage refinancing.

    Today’s mortgage interest rates continue to make homeownership possible for many people.

    UMB offers various competitive rate options. But knowing the exact rate depends on a borrower’s credit history and the term (length in years) of the home mortgage loan. To give you an idea of current mortgage rates, use the UMB Loan Comparison Calculator.

    The rates included in this calculator are updated regularly to reflect the average mortgage interest rates today.
