About GVC Mortgage.

We believe two things directly contribute to a successful mortgage loan experience: understanding the process and customer service. When it comes to your homebuyer goals, we make them our goals.

The home loan process.

If you’re looking to purchase a home, the first step is to talk to our team. We’ll have a one-on-one conversation that results in a customized plan to get you to the closing table. We’ll review your finances and determine the best loan program to help you accomplish your goals.

Once you understand your mortgage options, we’ll start working on your application. During this part of the process, our team will help you determine which documents need to be submitted, what the right down payment is for your goals, and double check everything before submitting to our underwriters.

When your application is approved, we’ll schedule the closing and finalize a few last-minute details. This is the most exciting part of the process because after you sign your closing documents, we get to welcome you home!

Find the right home loan program.

FHA home loans are designed provide flexible guidelines for homebuyers. Removing barriers traditionally associated with mortgage programs, FHA loans offer lower down payment options and easier credit qualifications.

Conventional home loans are great for those who have saved the traditional 20% for a down payment, though smaller down payment options exist for this home loan, as well.

USDA home loans provide financing for those looking to purchase in rural settings. As a rural development program, USDA loans offer zero down payment mortgage solutions for qualifying borrowers and properties.

Created specifically for active military personnel, veterans, and U.S. Military families, VA home loans offer qualified borrowers a no down payment loan option with lower credit score qualifications.

Frequently asked questions.

What are the best mortgage loan programs for Battle Creek?

Houses in Battle Creek come in a large variety of prices and sizes. Ultimately, it’s about what you’re looking for and need in a home.

How much do I need for a down payment in Battle Creek?

The amount you need for your down payment comes down the loan program you’re using to purchase your home. In most cases you’ll need 0-5% to purchase a home. Ultimately, your down payment amount is about your end goals, the type of home you want to purchase, and your current situation.
