Conventional Home Loans Conventional mortgages are not federally backed, but must adhere to specific guidelines set by Fannie Mae. This type of mortgage is suited to those with good or excellent credit. Rates can be fixed or flexible. A down payment is typically required. HFB offers local underwriting, low rates and quick turnaround with our conventional loans. HFB is an approved Fannie Mae Seller-Servicer, so your loan can be serviced locally by our team. When you have a question, we're right here to help!

FHA & VA Loans An FHA insured loan is a US Federal Housing Administration mortgage insurance backed mortgage loan, which is provided by a FHA-approved lender. FHA loans are a type of federal assistance and have historically allowed lower income Americans to borrow money for the purchase of a home that they would not otherwise be able to afford. 

VA-guaranteed loans are available to service members, veterans and eligible surviving spouses. VA loans have competitive interest rates and often require no down payment or private mortgage insurance.

HFB has been a HUD approved lender since 1928 and is endorsed by HUD and VA to underwrite and approve FHA and VA loans. This means your loan is underwritten and approved locally.
