Fixed Rate Loans

Several categories of conventional loans exist, the most common and familiar being the fixed rate mortgage. In the cases of fixed rate mortgages, the borrower will lock in an interest rate, and pay down both the principal and interest on the loan at that interest rate every month until the mortgage is paid off. The most typical term of a fixed rate loan is 30 years, though fixed rate mortgages can also be obtained for much shorter terms, the primary difference being in the size of the monthly mortgage payment.

Conforming Loans

Other conventional loans are known as conforming loans. In these cases, an arrangement is made between borrower and lender that comply with the stipulations of two federally run mortgage tradingcompanies (or Government Sponsored Entities - GSEs) Fannie Mae (FNME) and or Freddie Mac (FHLMC).

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac does not directly approve or deny loans. They buy and sell home mortgages, working with lenders to make home ownership easier for people to attain. Lenders like to sign up borrowers with conforming loan, because they can then sell these loans to Fannie May or Freddie Mac in order to more quickly receive the funds coming to them, and use those funds to make other investments. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, in turn, then repackage these loans to sell to investors as securities.

The current guidelines for a conventional Fannie Mae loan set a maximum purchase price for a single-family home at slightly above $415,000 (though residents of Alaska, Hawaii, or Guam may be able to qualify for an even larger loan).

The interest rateas well as the short- and long-term pricing on a conforming loan is determined primarily by the type of loan applied for. Also taken into consideration will be the amount of funds you already have to contribute to closing costs, your credit rating, credit score, and credit history, your employment history, and the type and location of the home in question.

Jumbo Loans

Other forms of conventional loansare nonconforming loan instruments that do not meet Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac loan qualifications, such as jumbo loans, or loans so large they fall outside the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loan limits (or purchase limits). Jumbo loans are provided by private investors and as such ordinarily come with much higher interest rates than conforming loans.

FHA Loans

Government entities from a local to a federal level and private entities alike have worked to Develop loan programs that make home ownership a reality for many people considered Under-qualified for traditional mortgages, these include; loans for first-time homebuyers, people with a low-to-moderate income that are insured by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) via the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). HUD and the FHA do not make loans directly, rather they insure loans; meaning that the lender still gets paid back - even if you default on the home loan.

Black Community Wants Gwinnett To Rename New Elem. School Named After A Prominate White Family

Just like what happened in 1818 when Gwinnett County was first established, the county powers to be, deemed it necessary to take the land of the Cherokee for foundating a settlement....

.....The area was purchased by two tri-racial families, the Andersons and the Livseys in the 1920''s. They are Black, White and Indian(Cherokee). For over 100 years they have been a self sufficient community. Hard working and politically involved in Gwinnett's history. The Livseys are one of only a handful of settlers who have been recognized by Gwinnett County Historical Society as one of the "First Families Of Gwinnett County "

Today, another first family has been given the unclear privilege of having a new elementary school named for them in the Promised Land. Until five years ago this area had a Lithonia, Georgia address. Even though, do to re-writing city boundaries to this area and renaming it....Snellville. It is still a city that is seven miles away from the new school, Gwinnett county sees fit to name the new school after a family matriarch of the Snell family, in addition of already having the city named after the Snells.

Its like building a fort on an Indian reservation. How can you build a school that will educate children in the immediate area and not acknowledge the community leaders request to name the school after the forefathers of Anderson Livsey. Is it politics? There is no racial inference or implications by the Livseys or the Andersons. The three families are very friendly with each other. Its simply an oversight by a county government with no compassion for this historic neighborhood, or its citizens.....
