Conventional Fixed Rate Mortgage
Conventional fixed rate loans are offered up to a 30 year term and are made available through government sponsored organizations known as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The fixed rate and payments are fixed for the life of the loan dependent upon the term selected.
VA Home Mortgages
VA homes are available to help veterans, active duty military, National Guard, reservists, and surviving spouses to afford the homes they deserve. The Department of the Veterans Affairs determines the eligibility dependent upon the length and type of service by the service member.
Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM)
ARM loan are loans based upon market indexes that become adjustable after a fixed rate period between 5, 7 or 10 years. The interest rate could go up or down dependent upon the market factors. Typically starting ARM rates can be lower than traditional fixed rate mortgages.

What they're saying about GEM...
Lyle was very patient and helpful in educating my wife and I on our first home purchase. He helped advise us on how to prepare when we began communicating with him over a year before we purchased the home. He helped us get a great rate too!Christopher D
Whenever I had questions (which was a lot), he quickly got back to me and patiently explained the whole process. I really appreciate those explanations, particularly when it came to signing documents. He also seemed to genuinely care that we got what was best for us and not just the best for the lender to make money.Chandra D
Level of personal concern is amazing. It's not very often in today's world that you get the genuine feeling that someone is looking out for your best interest and not just in it for a buck. I appreciated all the advice and explanations in the process. I have referred Lyle in the past and will continue to do so for anyone that mentions home buying or refinancing.Kristopher W
