Amerisave Mortgage FAQ

How much can you borrow via Amerisave Mortgage Corporation?

Amerisave Mortgage allows borrowers to apply for loan amounts of up to $2,000,000. Note that the maximum loan amount you can borrow will also vary depending on the type of mortgage you choose, regardless of the lender you choose.

What is the maximum loan term you can get with Amerisave Mortgage?

Amerisave Mortgage offers mortgages with terms ranging from 3 to 30 years. Having the option of longer terms allows borrowers to take on larger loan amounts while keeping monthly payments more affordable. However, the longer the term of your loan, the more interest you will pay.

What mortgage rates does Amerisave Mortgage Corporation offer?

Mortgage rates change daily based on market conditions and vary significantly depending on the loan type and the length of the term. For instance, fixed rate mortgages will typically have a higher interest rate than mortgages with variable rates, and jumbo loans usually have higher mortgage rates than conforming conventional loans. Find the best interest rate available to you by getting quotes from three or more mortgage lenders before choosing a home loan.

Does Amerisave Mortgage charge an application fee?

Yes, there is an application fee of $500.

Note that if your loan originator or loan officer claims not to charge an application fee, the cost of the loan process is probably included somewhere else in the closing costs. As with other closing costs, the application fee is often negotiable. However, you may need to offer a higher down payment or have an excellent credit score to get your loan officer to consider a lower price.

Do they charge mortgage origination fees?

No, Amerisave Mortgage does not charge a mortgage origination fee.

Some lenders charge an origination fee for processing, underwriting, and funding a mortgage. Typically fees range from 0.5% to 5% of the loan amount. Whenever possible, go with lenders that don’t charge origination fees.

Do they charge prepayment fees?

No, there are prepayment fees. This means you will not have to pay additional fees if you decide to repay the mortgage early.

What mortgage programs are available?

Besides conventional mortgages, Amerisave Mortgage offers the following mortgage types:

  • FHA loans: FHA loans are mortgages insured by the FHA. They offer competitive mortgage rates and have less stringent eligibility requirements. However, borrowers must pay a mortgage insurance premium. For instance, you can apply for an FHA loan with a credit score as low as 580. Co-applicants are allowed and you can qualify for a down payment as low as 3%.
  • Jumbo loans: Any mortgage with a loan amount above the conforming loan limits set by the Federal Housing Finance Agency ($548,250 as of 2021).
  • USDA loans: A zero down payment mortgage loan with low mortgage rates for suburban and rural homebuyers. The USDA doesn't require a minimum credit score, but most mortgage lenders require a minimum credit score of 640.
  • VA loans: A zero down payment mortgage or a refinance of up to 120% of the home's value for American military members, veterans, and their spouses. VA loans offer competitive mortgage rates, and don't have a minimum credit score. However, the mortgage lenders that offer them will typically require a credit score of at least 640.

What property usage types does Amerisave Mortgage allow?

Some mortgage lenders restrict the type of usage borrowers give mortgaged properties. Amerisave Mortgage allows the following property usage types: 

  • Primary home
  • Secondary homes and vacation properties
  • Investment properties and house flipping projects
