Conventional Home Loans

Program Overview

The main difference between a conventional loan and other types of mortgages is that a conventional loan is not made or insured by a government entity.  Instead, conventional loans are a type of mortgage in which the underlying terms and conditions meet the funding criteria of Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FHLMC).

Today, about 35-50% of all mortgages, depending on market conditions and consumer trends, are conventional mortgages.

Conventional home loans are ideal for borrowers with strong credit worthiness and strong financial resources to meet the down payment and credit requirements.  One major misconception is that in order to qualify for conventional financing you had to have a credit score in 700′s and a down payment of 20% to avoid costly mortgage insurance.

However, that is not completely accurate as I am able to offer conventional loans for credit scores over 680 and a minimum down payment of 5% with the option to eliminate monthly mortgage insurance!  This is an excellent program and only offered by a few lenders nationwide.

Prospective home buyers can opt for both fixed-rate and adjustable-rate terms.  The most popular conventional home loan option is the 30-year fixed rate, but an adjustable-rate mortgage may be more advantageous in the event you plan on relocating or upsizing within the next 10-years.
