Borrowers have low down payment options with Wells Fargo. You can get a conventional fixed-rate mortgage with a down payment as low as 3 percent. Be aware that with a low down payment, you'll need to purchase mortgage insurance, which increases the loan cost and monthly payment. And, as always, eligibility is dependent upon loan amount, loan type, and property type.
FHA (Federal Housing Administration) loans have low down payment options, too, with rates as low as 3.5 percent and you can often use a gift or grant for the down payment and closing costs. This, too, requires purchasing mortgage insurance.
VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) loans offer low- and no-down payment options for eligible service members and veterans and unlike conventional and FHA low down payment loan requirements, you don't have to worry about mortgage insurance.
Wells Fargo offers a wide variety of loan options, including 30-year, 20-year, and 15-year fixed rate mortgages, 5/1 ARM (adjustable-rate mortgages), 30-year fixed rate VA loans, and 30-year fixed rate FHA loans. In some cases, borrowers may be able to customize their loan.
In addition, the company offers refinancing and funding to pay for repairs and renovations.
Wells Fargo offers home equity financing. Pairing a home equity line of credit with fixed-rate or adjustable-rate mortgages can give you payment flexibility. A home equity line of credit also has potential tax benefits: in some cases you can deduct the interest used to improve, buy, or build a home with home equity financing.

Closing costs with any mortgage vary by loan amount, type, and location, but borrowers should check for and question fees that are not clearly explained by the lender.
Similarly, interest rate and annual percentage rate (APR) will vary depending on the borrower's credit score, debt-to-income ratio, money set aside for a down payment, mortgage program chosen, and other individual financial factors. Make sure to discuss your loan options, including mortgage rates and all loan terms, in detail with your loan officer.
I find them to be not helpful and they seem to calculate matters wrong as well
So far they have been a very excellent company
they were horrible during the process of refinancing, not trustworthy
They have an old website and are hard to get in touch with when I have questions. They also have delayed in paying my insurance from my escrow to the insurance company.
never had an issue, granted it really doesn't matter who you mail your payments too.
constant follow ups and making sure I am satisfied with their service
I have not had any problems with them. At times they don't apply payments as indicated on payment slip and had to call to rectify.
serviced a loan from another company and customer service was horrible. Refused to help with modification, In fact 3 times they told me I qualified for a modification only to be
easy to pay on internet, easy to get ahold of when needed.
They are ok and I have no issues outside of the terrible fees. I do have issues with their advertising... sent me a pre-approved letter for an equity loan and actually applied to consolidate some debt. They declined my loan saying I was never really pre-approved. Now that all of the debt is paid, I am going to start shopping for a new bank.
Decent rates, good services. Local branches, good telephone service.
Don't particularly like Wells Fargo. They have had issues in the past.
The name speaks for itself. Great customer service, fair and quality product. Convenient location to home and work. Mortgage loan, savings account, checking account and soon automotive loan with WF. Never had a problem with customer service locally nor out of state. Knowledgeable employees are a plus. Office is alway neat/clean appearance
Have had no issues with this lender. Good app and website. Happy with my rate.
I never had a problem with Wells Fargo. My intrest rate is very low and my monthly payments have gone down.
I have not incurred problems with them but they could more proactive with financial suggestions for their customers which would build consumer allegiance.
I refinanced my house at a very good rate without fees.
tHEY ARE FAR CHEAPER THAN OTHERS
