Beth and Kathy were friendly and informative right from the beginning. We have bought and sold many houses throughout the country, never has the experience been so painless. Less than 30 days from start to finish. Would definitely use them again!- Marcella W.
It started with me trying my hardest to get a loan on time to meet my closing date. With HUD and FHA, it was a very long, trying, tedious process, but the team at First Centennial Mortgage was outstanding and was there at every turn to help me secure the loan and get my new house.- Lawrence Z.
Beth, Kathy and John provided a very clear and understandable mortgage process for us. We knew what was happening at each step, and what the expectations were for us to be approved for the loan, which took a lot of stress out of home buying. Thank you.- Douglas B.
I recommended First Centenial Mortgage to my sister shortly after I purchase my first home with their assistance and I am now recommending them to my niece so she can buy her first home.- Jose M.
After getting the run around from a couple of banks, First Centennial Mortgage had us approved within an hour so we were able to jump on the great deal for buying the house we did. Thank you Beth, Kathy and John for all your hard work!- Shannon L.
As a first time homeowner, I was hesitant, confused and scared hearing about the process from friends and family. Guess what, I loved working with the team and did not feel any pain or issues during the whole process.- Walid S.
It was a pleasure working with First Centennial Mortgage for our home purchase. They were very communicative, efficient and friendly!- Vanda T.
Beth, John, and Kathy were all so helpful and responded to my questions immediately. I couldn't ask for a better experience!- Ashlee B.

Fixed-rate home loans are the most common type of home loan in the mortgage industry. This option is low-risk and gives you predictable monthly principle and interest (P&I) payments for the next 15 or 30 years, depending on which loan term you choose. Fixed-rate loans are reliable for long-term owners ready to settle in one place for a long period of time.
An adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) is ideal for borrowers who plan to move within five years. ARMs take advantage of a low "introductory" interest rate so the loan stays at the same rate typically for 5, 7 or 10 years. Once the introductory period expires, the interest rate changes with the movement of an "index" (major interest rate). Following this movement, the amount of monthly interest either increases or decreases.
Conventional home loans are not backed by a federal agency, such as the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, U.S. Department of Agriculture or Federal Housing Administration. Conventional loans are idea for people with a stable job, income and good credit. Conventional home loans are more flexible in their terms and have fewer restrictions compared to government-backed products.
Federal Housing Authority (FHA) loans are government assured and are ideal for people with limited income or money for a down payment. These loans typically help first-time homebuyers, seniors or others with limits on what they can afford.
Jumbo home loans are considered non-conforming mortgages. They are for purchases with a loan value above the federal standard of $453,100, although that number varies based on location. For a home with a purchase price above this limit, a jumbo loan is needed.
Veterans Affairs (VA) home loans are a great benefit to military personnel during and after their service. These loans are partly guaranteed (typically a quarter of loan value) by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
