What Is A Conventional Loan?

Unlike FHA and VA loans, the federal government does not directly insure conventional loans. Most conventional loans are conforming loans which means they meet Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac lending standards.

Conventional loans have different qualifying criteria and often work well for many different types of homebuyers. Conventional loans may require Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) depending on the down payment amount.

These home loans are ideal for homebuyers with a wider range of down payment amounts and stable credit history.

Most home loans in the United States are conventional loans. We work with homebuyers to meet the standards and requirements for traditional home mortgages.

How Conventional Mortgages Work

A traditional mortgage is a debt that you take out against your property. The lender will lend you money based on the house’s value. Then, you repay the loan over time using monthly payments.

The bank determines the interest rate on a mortgage using the current market conditions and your credit history. Conventional mortgages typically carry 15-to-30-year loan repayment periods. The monthly payments are calculated based on the principal amount, interest rates, and the repayment period.

At, we work with borrowers to achieve favorable terms, including monthly mortgage payments, loan limits, closing costs, and rate options.

An FHA loan gives homebuyers an alternative to a conventional home loan. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insures FHA loans to support borrowers who do not qualify for a traditional mortgage.

FHA loans are a good option for many first-time homebuyers. The government-backed mortgage program requires a smaller down payment and a lower credit score than many other loan programs.

Advantages of Conventional Loans

Flexible Options

Unlike many government-backed loans, conventional mortgages offer more options for borrowers. Many different options exist for PMI payments if that requirement is applicable. You can finance investment properties and second homes with conventional mortgages.

Lower Down Payment Requirements

Conventional loans allow homebuyers to put less than 20% down on their homes. However, most borrowers will face a PMI requirement for a lower down payment. The advantage is achieving homeownership sooner.

Smoother Underwriting Process

Conventional loans typically require less paperwork than government-backed loans. Plus, the process moves quicker because of fewer requirements, like the FHA/VA appraisal inspection requirements.

More Accessible

Government-backed loans carry specific requirements for those who may participate. For example, VA loans apply to borrowers meeting military service requirements.

Conventional loans offer homebuyers the opportunity to finance their home with very flexible options. The experts at understand the process and requirements to make your mortgage process smoother. Contact us today!

What Are the Requirements for A Conventional Mortgage?

  • Some borrowers may qualify for a down payment of 3%. However, the down payment requirements change depending on the situation. For example, a conventional loan for an investment property or a second home requires a higher down payment.
  • For a down payment of less than 20%, most borrowers must pay PMI.
  • Having other assets like savings accounts, retirement accounts, or other financial assets can also be factors in underwriting your loan.
