Let’s find the right home loan for you

We have loan options to fit every situation, from down payment assistance programs for first-time homebuyers to government-sponsored programs for military families and rural residents or jumbo loans in high-cost markets.

Conventional

Conventional

A Conventional loan is a great option if you have an average to high credit score and little debt. This allows you to take advantage of lower interest rates. With these types of loans, you have the option to put 20% down, which eliminates the need for private mortgage insurance (PMI) and saves you money. If you don’t have a large down payment saved up though, don’t worry. We have Conventional loan options for down payments as low as 3%.
Down payment assistance

Down payment assistance

If you’re purchasing your first home, you have options to buy without saving a full down payment. Down payment assistance (DPA) programs can help with your down payment in the form of a loan or grant that is often forgiven over time.
FHA

FHA

If you’re looking to buy on a tight budget, these loans are a great option. It’s easier to qualify for FHA loans because they carry lower credit score requirements and lower down payment options starting at 3.5% down. They’re also insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and only issued by FHA-approved lenders.

All loans are subject to underwriter approval; terms and conditions may apply. Subject to change without notice.

Leon’s team at Academy Mortgage provided excellent service from beginning to end. This is the second time we have worked with them, and specifically with Leon’s team, for the purchase of a home in southeast Alaska. As residents of the area know, the real estate market is extremely competitive, and time is of the essence in completing transactions. When I reached out to Leon’s team for preapproval and to make an offer on a house, they handled everything swiftly and efficiently. I highly recommend using Academy Mortgage for their outstanding service.

Through the entire process everyone on the McKean team were very communicative on updates and keeping me in the loop. They also were willing to explain every step in ways I could understand and absorb as a first time home buyer, which I am very grateful for!
