Find the perfect loan for your lifestyle.
We offer a number of different loan options for you because we know mortgages are not one-size-fits-all. Whether for a first-time home buyer, a growing family or an established homeowner looking for an investment or vacation property, Universal Mortgage & Finance, Inc. offers a wide range of financing options to meet home buyer needs. Our experienced and knowledgeable loan officers will review each home buyer’s personal financial position and help them decide the best solutions.
The most popular loan option for first time homebuyers. Purchase your home with as little as 3.5% down with a Federal Housing Administration loan.
A mortgage loan in the United States guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The loan may be issued by qualified lenders (like us). It’s designed specifically to help you purchase a home with fewer restrictions and with little to no down payment. The Veterans Affairs (or VA) loan is governed by the United States Department of Veterans’ Affairs and offers lower rates and lower payments.
Stick to your budget with a loan that’s simple and straightforward. A 30-year fixed rate mortgage is the most popular home loan option available. It is ideal for home buyers because of its straightforward structure and its predictable and steady monthly payment. With a 30 year fixed-rate mortgage, it is easy to set your budget because your total payment of principle and interest remain unchanged for the entire term of the loan.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) insures loans to home buyers with low to moderate income moving to designated rural areas.
Are you purchasing a high-value property? Consider a jumbo loan! A jumbo loan is used to finance a property that’s too costly for a Conventional conforming loan.
15 Year Mortgages
This loan is fully amortized over a 15-year period and features constant monthly payments. It offers all the advantages of the 30-year loan, plus a lower interest rate—and you’ll own your home twice as fast.
May refer to the replacement of an existing debt obligation with a debt obligation under different terms. The terms and conditions of refinancing may vary widely by country, province, or state, based on several economic factors such as, inherent risk, projected risk, political stability of a nation, currency stability, banking regulations, borrower’s credit worthiness, and credit rating of a nation.
Cash Out Refinance
Take advantage of your home’s equity and get cash at closing to use where you need it most with a cash-out refinance. This is money that’s sitting in your home! This may be the perfect opportunity to knock out some home improvements, pay college tuition, or pay off high interest credit card debt.

Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM)
A loan option with a low introductory rate and an interest rate that adjusts over time. Hybrid ARMs —also called 3/1, 5/1, 7/1 or 10/1 are available. For example, a “5/1 loan” has a fixed monthly payment and interest for the first five years and then turns into a traditional adjustable-rate loan, based on then-current rates for the remaining 25 years.
Reverse Mortgage (HECM)
The Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) is FHA’s reverse mortgage program, which enables senior home owners, age 62+, to access a portion of the equity in their home. This program was also designed to allow seniors to purchase a new principal residence and obtain a reverse for purchase mortgage within a single transaction. The HECM program enables senior home buyers to relocate to other areas to be closer to family, or to “right-size” their new homes to better accommodate their individual needs.
Home Equity Line of Credit
Instead of paying for mortgage insurance when your “Loan-to-Value” (LTV) is greater than 80%, we can offer either:
Both can be done up to 95% LTV – meaning still only putting a 5% Down payment without mortgage insurance! Both loan programs – the interest you pay on these loans is tax deductible when used in buying a home!
*Note that per the IRS: You can’t deduct your mortgage insurance premiums if your adjusted gross income (line 11 on IRS Form 1040), is more than $109,000 ($54,500 if married filing separately).
Asset Qualifier Loan Program
No income? Use assets to qualify for a mortgage!
Borrowers with great credit, but no steady monthly income, may be able to use their assets to qualify for a mortgage. Compared to other asset depletion programs, our Asset Qualifier program essentially doubles the qualifying monthly income, since the draw period is only 5 years (qualifying assets / 60 months).
