Loan Programs

The following is a partial list of programs offered by Cascade Home Sales & Loans with a brief description of the key elements of each. For a complete list of the programs that we offer, please contact us at 360-254-0909.


Traditional loan programs that usually require 5% down and offer competitive interest rates. Documentation and fair-to-good credit are necessary.

VA Home Loans

VA helps Servicemembers, Veterans, and eligible surviving spouses become homeowners. As part of our mission to serve you, we provide a home loan guaranty benefit and other housing-related programs to help you buy, build, repair, retain, or adapt a home for your own personal occupancy.
VA Home Loans are provided by private lenders, such as banks and mortgage companies. VA guarantees a portion of the loan, enabling the lender to provide you with more favorable terms.

FHA Mortgage Loans

FHA loans are private loans insured by the federal government. These loans are popular with borrowers who don’t have enough funds to pay a traditional 20 percent down payment because they only require 3 percent down to qualify. Those who choose these loans are required to pay mortgage insurance which slightly increases their monthly payments.

Lenders who wish to offer these loans must be approved by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Please contact us today to find out if a FHA loan is right for you.

Investor Loans

Used to finance 1-4 family properties that will be for investment with as little as a 10% down payment. Aggressively priced, these programs have many variations, including: No Doc, Limited Doc, and Full Doc. Program may not be available in some states.

Harp Loans

Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP)

If you're not behind on your mortgage payments but have been unable to get traditional refinancing because the value of your home has declined, you may be eligible to refinance through the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP). HARP is designed to help you get a new, more affordable, more stable mortgage. HARP refinance loans require a loan application and underwriting process, and refinance fees will apply.

No (PMI) Mortgage Insurance Loans

With PMI, you pay the lender a premium in addition to your regular mortgage payments, thereby protecting the lender in case you default on the loan. In return, you are granted a mortgage with a smaller down payment. While PMI has its advantages, there are many reasons why you should try to avoid paying private mortgage insurance. Fortunately, there are also creative ways to avoid PMI and still move into your own home, even if you don't have the standard down payment.

High Debt Ratio Loans

A ratio of monthly bills to monthly income higher than 50% is considered a high debt ratio. Loan programs are available for borrowers in this situation, allowing them to finance the purchase of a home or property.

Challenged Credit Loans

These mortgages are for borrowers with less-than-perfect credit. They can vary from slightly damaged credit to severely damaged. Regardless of your situation, we have a mortgage that will get you back on track.

Jumbo Loans

Offers 30 and 15 year fixed rate mortgage and competitive ARM products with full document, alternate documentation and limited documentation.

Cash out and No cash out refinance are allowable. Single family detached, Condo's, PUD's and single-family second homes can be financed with no prepayment penalty.
