Home Purchase Loans in Seattle WA

While home loans can be used for a variety of purposes, the majority of mortgages are used to buy a home. If you are thinking about purchasing a home in Washington, you should know that you are looking at a competitive market where you need a competitive loan. As homes are appreciating in value, now is the time to invest.

Types of Home Purchase Loans in Washington State

The type of loan you choose should depend on your financial situation and your goals in purchasing a home. Blue Square Mortgage specializes in the following types of home purchase loans:

Conventional Loans

A loan which does not exceed the conforming loan limits set and guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is called a conventional loan or conforming loan. The conventional loan limits in Seattle and throughout King County, WA are set higher than the standard loan limits so that many homes in the area can be purchased through conventional financing.


Jumbo Loans

Those homes which require financing that exceeds the limits for conventional funding require a jumbo loan. It should come as no surprise that jumbo loans are necessary to purchase many properties in the Seattle region. We strive to bring you affordable rates for both conventional and jumbo mortgages.


VA Loans

For those who have served in our nation's armed forces, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers the VA loan benefit program. Eligible applicants can apply for a VA-insured loan and put zero down on a new home. VA loans include other excellent advantages as well.


FHA Loans

We also specialize in the FHA loan program which is backed by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). FHA loans offer first-time and repeat homebuyers great benefits like flexible qualification, low down payments, and affordable rates.


You can pick between either of these types of interest rates:


With this type of interest rate, you pay the same fixed-rate for the lifetime of your mortgage.


If you go with an adjustable mortgage rate (ARM), the interest rate may vary over the lifetime of the loan. Many ARMs include a special introductory rate that can last from one month to 10 years.

We also offer a few different types of loans for special situations.

If you have poor credit, we can connect you with a loan product which will enable you to buy a home with a competitively priced mortgage. For those who are self-employed, we offer stated income home purchase loans. We have loans for real estate investors as well.

Qualifying for a Home Purchase Mortgage in Seattle

As you can see, different types of home purchase loans have different qualification requirements. Qualifying for a conventional loan is different than qualifying for a jumbo loan or a VA loan or an FHA loan.

In general, however, regardless of the type of loan you are applying for, the lowest-risk borrowers will qualify for the best rates and terms. Ideally, a home purchase loan applicant should:

  • Have a good credit score.
  • Have a debt-to-income ratio which can comfortably accommodate the addition of a mortgage payment every month.
  • Be employed steadily for a period of at least two consecutive years.
  • Not have a bankruptcy or foreclosure within the past 2-3 years.
  • Be able to afford a down payment. The amount of that down payment will depend on the type of loan as well as the criteria above.
