Frequently Asked Questions:


Pre-approvals are a great idea, especially in hot real estate markets. Sellers typically prefer offers from pre-approved buyers, so having a pre-approval can not only lock in your rate but also help get your offer accepted. An application can be over the phone or in-person at a branch, or you can apply online.

The answer to this question depends on both your income and your expenses. But a great starting point is using our Mortgage Loan Calculator to estimate your mortgage payment based on the amount borrowed and interest rate. Be sure to consider property taxes and insurance, too. Learn more in our blog article, How Much House Can I Afford?

For a better estimate of what you can comfortably afford, contact a Texell Home Loan Hero at 254.774.5104, visit a branch, or email Mortgage@Texell.org.

Absolutely. Whether you need to change the length of your loan, pull money out of your equity, or save money by refinancing to a lower rate, we have a program to help. Refinance loans are as low as 6.375,1 and some of our programs can see your loan close in just a few weeks. Contact a Texell Home Loan Hero at 254.774.5104, visit a branch, or by email at Mortgage@Texell.org.
For new home purchases, we offer down payments as low as 0% on our VA and USDA loans, down payments as low as 3% on our First-time Homebuyer and Conventional loans and down payments as low as 3.5% on FHA loans. First-time Homebuyer loans offer lower monthly payments with no mortgage insurance.¹ For conventional loans, a down payment of at least 20% allows you to avoid paying mortgage insurance.
A Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loan is a government-backed mortgage insured by Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Today, FHA loans have emerged as the primary source of financing for low down payments and/or lower credit score purchases and refinances and provide excellent financing for most homeowners.

A VA loan is a loan guaranteed by the Department of Veterans Administration for qualified veterans and active-duty military personnel and their spouses who are first- or second-time home buyers.

A USDA home loan offers a 0% down payment for eligible properties and home buyers. The home must be located in an eligible rural area to qualify for this loan, as defined by the USDA.
Texell Home Loans are all fixed-rate loans. A fixed-rate mortgage is a loan with a fixed interest rate that does not fluctuate with market rates and provides a constant monthly payment. When interest rates were much higher, variable rate loans were popular because they often offered lower rates than fixed rates, but there’s now little difference, so we don’t see the value in risking the rates (and your payment) increasing.
