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.

My husband and I were first time home buyers, but Alex walked us through everything to where we did not feel like we were first time home buyers. We asked many questions at all different hours and he was always available. We definitely cannot recommend Alex enough. He made our first home purchase a breeze and gave us confidence throughout the whole process.

Alex was a rockstar lender for us - he was knowledgeable, patient, thorough, and very supporting throughout the process. We initially looked in Roanoke for our home but ended up changing plans and buying in Richmond. Our experience and initial discussions with him in Roanoke were so positive that we ended up using him for our purchase in Richmond! I will continue to work with him any chance we get.

We made a great decision trusting Alex and Guild with our mortgage! As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions and Alex was always available, knowledgeable, and super resourceful. He's helped us through issues and given us critical money-saving advice, beyond the mortgage piece of the process. He even got us through a bind while he was on vacation! We would recommend Alex as a mortgage loan officer to anyone in VA!

I started working with Alex‘s team at the very beginning when I decided I wanted to buy a home. He was kind enough and took the time to explain every step in detail, and to answer all of my questions. Couldn’t have asked for a better team that has continued to answer my questions, after the sale of the home was complete, I definitely couldn’t of done it without them !!
