What is a Conventional Loan?

A Conventional Mortgage is simply any mortgage loan that is not insured or guaranteed by the federal or state government. Conventional Mortgages typically require a higher down payment, usually 5%–20%. They also have higher income and credit score requirements than government loans. Conventional loans are most commonly a 30-year fixed rate loan term, but are also generally offered in 25, 20, 15, and 10 year loan terms.

What are the benefits of a Conventional Loan?

Conventional Loans offer the following features:

  • Buyer has immediate equity in the property.
  • No private mortgage insurance is required with a 20% down payment.
  • Closing costs and fees may be included in the loan.
  • Fewer bureaucratic hurdles, making the loans quicker to process.
  • No government stipulations and prepayment penalties if you sell or refinance your house.

Who may benefit from a Conventional Loan?

Conventional Loans may the right fit for you if:

  • You’re a first-time or repeat homebuyer
  • You have a good credit score and money to put down.
  • You want a low down payment.
