At Umpqua, we've never thought of ourselves as simply a bank. We're more like neighborhood experts who can answer questions, provide advice, and brainstorm about what you want and how to get it. And because a home loan is something that you'll live with for a long time, we'll make sure you get one that fits, whether you're a first-time homebuyer or building a custom home.


Unlike most first-time homebuyer programs, with FHA home loans you'll enjoy down payment requirements that are traditionally lower than conventional financing.

Rural Development1 _ First-time homebuyer

This USDA sponsored program is ideal if you're a first-time homebuyer looking to purchase in "rural defined population service areas." You must also meet certain income requirements. Learn more.


Federal and Oregon veterans' programs provide active duty personnel, reservists and veterans with low closing costs and historically low rates. Learn more at ORVET or FEDVA.

Bond1 Loan programs-First-time homebuyer

The Oregon Bond Loan and Washington Bond Loan programs provide first-time homebuyers with typically below market-rate financing and down payment assistance grants. Single unit houses, manufactured homes, condos and PUDs may be eligible based on current guidelines.


Traditional fixed-rate mortgages provide predictability in rate and payments. As a Fannie Mae-Freddie Mac Seller/Servicer, Umpqua offers a variety of government-backed loans. 

ARM (Adjustable Rate Mortgage)

If you're hoping to buy and sell your home in the near future, an ARM might be a good fit. These loans typically feature lower introductory rates that adjust periodically throughout the life of the loan.

Construction and renovation loan options

Whether you are buying new, building your dream home from the ground up, or renovating your current home, Umpqua's construction and renovation loan programs can help you consolidate your costs into one loan with one closing. Find out more here.
