Nothing is more exciting than buying a brand-new home. But coming up with extra money for closing costs isn’t as thrilling. That’s why Guardian Mortgage offers an innovative 1% Lender Credit to help with these expenses. If you are within 90 days of the completion of your new home, you may qualify. Most loan types do – including Conventional, FHA, and VA loans.

When you’re building a home and looking forward to the finish line, nothing’s worse than seeing interest rates climb; they go up and so do your stress levels. Our Builder Select program can ease your worries by locking in mortgage rates for up to 180 days. It’s protection for your rate and your peace of mind.

Conforming ARM image

Conforming ARM

An Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) typically offers lower rates than a fixed-rate mortgage. Your rate is locked for the first 3, 5, 7, or 10 years and then could adjust up (or down) based on the rate it’s tied to. It’s a great way to enjoy initial lower payments for borrowers who might plan on selling or refinancing before their fixed term ends.

Our conventional loan is great option for first-time homebuyers and experienced homeowners. This loan type is generally for borrowers with good credit scores, low debt-to-income ratios, and who want maximum flexibility.

Building a home is exciting, but it also means lots of decisions. Why make an additional loan one of them? If you’re constructing a new house, don’t shop for multiple loans, worry about multiple rates, and deal with multiple closings. Our one-time-close loan covers the land purchase, construction costs, and long-term financing… allowing you to focus on your new adventure.

FHA Lending image

FHA Lending

If you’re planning to buy a home soon, you may be wondering if you’ll qualify for a mortgage. That’s why Guardian Mortgage offers loans with “buyer-friendly”, easier qualifying guidelines, including our range of FHA mortgages. An FHA loan is partially insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). This enables us to approve more borrowers with imperfect credit and lower down payments.

USDA Rural Development

Breathe in the country air! USDA Rural Development loans help borrowers purchase eligible homes in certain rural and suburban areas. This loan is reserved for those who need it most— if you have low-to-moderate income it may be right for you.

Your service to our country means a lot; the VA home loan program is a tremendous benefit that you’ve already earned. Don’t let it go unused.

So, if you’ve served in the military, let Guardian Mortgage help you take advantage of this well-deserved benefit. You’ve earned it.
