Conventional Loans

Conventional loans are mortgage loans offered by non-government sponsored lenders. A conventional, or conforming, mortgage adheres to the guidelines set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It may have either a fixed or adjustable rate.

While many think that a 20% down payment is required for all conventional loans, many lenders now offer low down payment options.

Different types of conventional loans have different types of requirements associated with them. Please see below for some of the guidelines of the loans we work with.
