Finding home loans in Denver

There are many loans to choose from and several factors that play a part in your decision. Homebuyers most commonly take out a conventional or jumbo loan in Colorado. FHA loans are also popular with first-time buyers. Those planning to move in or around the Denver area should consider the following neighborhoods:

  • Longmont: Longmont is an affordable neighborhood with a rich history. Longmont's downtown has seen a bright revival, and the neighborhood overall is an excellent spot for young families. The median home purchase price of $390,500 is well below the conforming loan limits, so speak to a lender for a reasonable rate.
  • Villa Park: Villa Park is a growing, up-and-coming neighborhood with increasing home prices to match. The area has some of Denver's best shopping, parks and restaurants. Currently, home prices are a steal at $231,900, which is excellent for first-time buyers with an FHA loan.
  • Country Club: For buyers looking to have it all, Country Club is the place to be. Homes sell for an average of $1.75 million but come with an exclusive golf club, low crime rates and easy Downtown access. Given current conventional loan limits, jumbo mortgages are the best option to buy a home in the area.
  • Wellshire: Considered one of Denver's best-kept secrets, Wellshire has one of the lowest crime rates in the metro area. It's also near other desirable areas like the University of Denver and Old South Pearl. Military personnel looking to relocate family near the Buckley AFB could buy a house for a median home value of $562,845 and $0 down with a VA mortgage.

Choosing a Denver mortgage company

Most mortgages last 15 to 30 years, so it pays to shop around for the best interest rates and lenders. Gathering quotes, reading online reviews and asking friends and family members for recommendations can help you narrow down the best picks. From there, choose the most experienced lender with a reputation for customer satisfaction. Look for mortgage companies that are part of any mortgage associations or have completed certification programs, including receiving the Certified Mortgage Lender designation.
