With so many available mortgage options, it can be confusing to know which path is right for you. The following online resources can help you understand the differences between loan types and answer other questions that may arise when financing your dream home.

Fannie Mae®

This site has information on everything from estimating mortgage payments to general homeownership education. We especially like the Homebuying Myths vs. Facts section. Be sure to also check out the resources tab.

Freddie Mac®

The Tools & Resources section of this site is definitely worth exploring. You can learn about credit scores and financial literacy and access worksheets and quizzes to test (and hone) your homebuying knowledge and skills. You may also find the Freddie Mac Blog useful.

Federal Housing Administration (FHA)

If you prefer printable materials, this site has downloadable brochures about lending, home economics, homebuying programs by state and much more. You can also navigate to local resources and access information about homeowner’s insurance.

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)

This VA site offers information on qualifying for a VA Loan, why this type of loan may be a fit for you and instructions for utilizing this financing option. Don’t miss the contact us dropdown if you’re seeking one-on-one assistance.


Many homebuyers use Zillow to look at listings, but it can also be a good resource for learning about purchasing a home. This particular part of Zillow has information about different loan types and requirements. Toward the bottom of the page, you’ll find other articles that may be relevant to you as well.
