Conventional Loans

Conventional loans are designed to serve the needs of both homebuyers and those who would like to refinance or remodel their existing home.  Borrowers interested in conventional programs would be seeking to reduce closing costs by eliminating guarantee fees that may be associated with government-backed programs.

Conventional Loan Programs Include:

  • Conforming conventional loans are for borrowers who meet the guidelines, loan limits and parameters set by Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) and Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae). There is no maximum income limit. Conventional loans are typically not assumable.
  • Non-conforming conventional loans provide opportunities for financing where income, credit, collateral or other underwriting guidelines expand beyond the parameters of Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae.
  • Jumbo loans are for borrowers financing homes that exceed the upper loan limits set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Jumbo loan financing opens the possibility of obtaining long term fixed rates on home loans for loan amounts that exceed the conforming Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac limits

Government Loans

Government Loans are guaranteed by a federal or state agency, such as Federal Housing Administration (FHA), Veteran's Administration (VA) and Rural Development (RD). Government loans are designed to enhance homeownership affordability by allowing minimal down payments and less stringent approval guidelines

Government Loan Programs Include:

  • Federal Housing Administration loans are available to all borrowers who qualify based on guidelines, loan limits and parameters set by FHA. There is no maximum income limit set by FHA. FHA loans are assumable by prospective buyers whose credit is approved based on the same guidelines as the original borrower.
  • VA loans are available to veterans who served in active duty and received a Certificate of Eligibility from the military service. Veteran's Administration sets the guidelines, loan limits and parameters for qualification purposes. VA loans are assumable based on VA requirements.
  • RD loans guaranteed by Rural Development provide attractive financing for low to moderate income borrowers based on income limits set for each county. RD loans are assumable for borrower's who meet the income limits and other parameters of the RD program.

Portfolio Loans

Portfolio loans provide the flexibility to finance properties based on terms that may not meet the guidelines or requirements of government agencies or standard conventional loan programs. The portfolio program provides the customer with the opportunity to obtain financing through Stockman Bank in situations other institutions may not be able to consider.

Portfolio Loan Programs Include:

  • Construction Loans - Designed to assist in building new homes or commercial buildings, this program provides multiple advance loans where you only accrue interest on the amount advanced. With flexible fixed or variable rates for very short terms, borrowers can spend less time concerned about financing and more time developing their dream home.
  • Bridge Loans (Temporary Financing) - When the dream home becomes available and you are hindered by the fact that you need to sell your existing home, Stockman Bank has the ability to provide creative temporary financing to grasp those dreams before they slip away.
  • Vacation/Second Homes - Conventional programs may allow financing for that vacation home you have been eyeing but all your equity is tied up in your primary residence. We can solve your concerns with creative financing terms using the equity in your home without the need of two separate loans and closing costs.
  • Mobile Home Loans - Mobile homes create challenges when attempting to meet the secondary market requirements. Stockman Bank can assist with the financing of the mobile home whether it is permanently attached to the land or on blocks and pillars.
  • Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) - When an opportunity arises or an unexpected expense hits the pocket book, a revolving line of credit is the perfect choice to take care of the surprise without putting a strain on the savings. Secured by the equity in the borrower's home, interest only accrues on the amount advanced, saving unnecessary interest expense until funds are needed.

  • Second Mortgages - Sometimes it doesn't make sense to refinance the total debt on your home. However, borrowers still want the capability of using the equity that has accumulated on their home. When a revolving line is not needed, Stockman Bank can help gain access through second liens on property with favorable terms that make it affordable to make the second payment while maintaining the original terms of the first lien.
  • Vacant Land - An occasion may arise when land becomes available for future development. Stockman Bank has funds available to help finance those opportunities to assist in developing subdivisions and expanding communities.
  • Commercial - Borrowers are not limited to residential financing at Stockman Bank. Businesses seeking a home for their business venture do not have to look far for financing on commercial buildings and real estate. Click here to learn more about Commercial Real Estate loans .
  • Agricultural - Financing land for a farming or ranching operation is within reach through long-term financing options with Stockman Bank. Our commitment to Agriculture opens the door for new ventures and solidifies the future of established operations. Click here to learn more about Agricultural Real Estate loans.

Special Loan Programs Include:

  • First-Time Homebuyer Loans - Stockman Bank participates in first time homebuyer programs provided through the Montana Board of Housing (MBOH). Borrowers who meet the income eligibility requirements and who have not owned a previous home may obtain a government guaranteed loan at interest rates typically below the standard programs.
  • Home$tart - A program provided in conjunction with Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle (FHLB), the Home$tart program provides down payment assistance to low and moderate income first time homebuyers. Borrowers must complete a homebuyer education class and establish a savings account for at least six months to set aside funds towards closing costs. After meeting the criteria of the program, the FHLB will provide a matching grant of $2.00 for every $1.00 the borrower has saved up to a total grant of $5,000. Funds are available on a limited basis.
  • Neighborhood Housing Services - Montana Board of Housing has teamed up with Neighborhood Housing Services (NHS) to help provide down payment assistance. Qualified borrowers may be able to obtain second mortgage up to $5,000 for down payment and closing costs provided through the NHS/MBOH partnership payable over various periods along with the first mortgage through Stockman Bank.
