When you are out in the market considering your mortgage options, do not just look at conventional mortgage loans. Regardless what type of mortgage option you decide best fits your particular needs at this time, make sure that you shop around for the best deal out there.

You may have a bank, credit union, or some other type of financial institution that you use for your banking needs, but that does not mean that your specific lender will have the best mortgage options for you. If you spend some time looking around, you will probably find several lenders that will offer you better packages, especially if you have great credit.

If you do not want to go for the typical fixed-rate mortgage loan or an ARM, there are a great amount of other choices available to you. For example, if yours is a low income family or you are a veteran of the armed forces, you may want to look into what the FHA or VA are offering. They have both fixed-rate and ARM mortgages available, and they are more flexible with the qualification guidelines.

You might also want to consider a two-step loan, which is an adjustable rate mortgage with one interest rate during the first seven years of the loan, and another rate during whatever remains of the loan. If you want to entice your lender into considering you for a loan, you may want to look into a shared appreciation option, which allows a lender or another party to share the profits when and if a home is sold.

GMP or graduated payment mortgages are also available, and these require a borrower to make ever greater monthly payments during the life of the loan. You should really think forward when you are looking at this type of loan and make sure that you will be able to keep up with the monthly increases.

If the above-mentioned mortgages are not what you are looking for, you can also take a look at convertible adjustable rate loans because these allow the conversion of your mortgage into a fixed rate during a period stated in the loan agreement. A buy-down loan may also entice your lender into approving your loan because you will pay a premium so that the lender will reduce the interest rate during the first few years of the loan.

There are, in fact, many more mortgage options than the ones already mentioned, and some research into the subject will help you find ones that are not described here. This is why it is extremely important to shop around and see what is out there, and then you can go to the different lenders and see how the rates and costs differ from one lender to the other.

There may be quite a difference when you do your research and shopping around, and you could end up saving a considerable amount of money. What will dictate the best option for you is what you are planning to do with your property, and especially how long you are planning to live there.
