At Alabama Home Mortgage Loans, we offer a variety of mortgage loan programs for our customers.

Conventional Loans

A conventional loan is a home mortgage issued by a traditional lender without support from a government-backed loan program.

Typically, with a conventional loan, the borrower pays 20 percent down on the purchase price of the house.

A conventional, or conforming, mortgage adheres to the guidelines set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

It may have either a fixed or adjustable rate.

VA Loans

VA helps Servicemembers, Veterans, and eligible surviving spouses become homeowners.

They provide a home loan guaranty benefit and other housing-related programs to help you buy, build, repair, retain, or adapt a home for your own personal occupancy.

VA Home Loans are provided by private lenders, such as banks and mortgage companies. VA guarantees a portion of the loan, enabling the lender to provide you with more favorable terms.

USDA Loans

​The USDA’s single-family housing direct home loan program is designed to help low and very-low income people obtain housing in rural areas, notes USDA.gov.

Applicants must:

  • Be unable to obtain a loan from other resources
  • Agree to occupy the property as their primary residence
  • Have the legal capacity to get a loan
  • Not be barred from participating in federal programs
  • Be citizens or eligible non-citizens

The program does not require that the applicant make a down payment.

The USDA’s direct guaranteed loan program has similar requirements, and the USDA offers an income limit scale on its website. The scale is based on the location of the home and the classifications of very low income, low income or moderate income.
