If you are looking for a mortgage loan that allows you to buy a house, you should know that there are alternative options to credits granted by

SOFOM stands for Multiple Purpose Financial Companies, and these are
anonymous companies dedicated to granting credits through resources obtained from groups or larger financial companies.
Generally a SOFOM grants you between 80% and 95% of the total value of the house you want to buy. The interest rate, as in most bank loans, can be fixed or variable. In addition, as in any type of credit, the amount you obtain through SOFOM will depend on your ability to pay.

Advantages of a SOFOM loan
The main advantage of SOFOMES is that they are the alternative for many people who do notmeet the requirements for a bank loan or other financial institutions or who, due to their type of work, do not have housing benefits from the government.
In general, the benefits obtained with a SOFOM loan are very similar to those Of regular mortgage loans. For example:
- Flexibility of use. Credit can be used to buy a home or other options.

which can be 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 years. The client chooses the one that best suits him according to their needs and ability to pay.
