What is a Conventional Loan?
A conventional loan is a mortgage that is not guaranteed or insured by any government agency such as FHA, VA, or USDA. Conventional loans are either conforming or non-conforming. Conforming mortgages must follow lending guidelines and loan limits set by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, whereas Non-conforming mortgages have loan amounts higher than the loan limits set by Fannie Mae / Freddie Mac.
Conventional loans generally offer low interest rate and fees, which can result in lower monthly payments. Home buyers can also choose a fixed-rate over an adjustable-rate mortgage to avoid any rising mortgage rates which makes budgeting much easier.
There are many benefits to a conventional loan such as faster home loan process, flexibility, and lower costs. Conventional loans can be a great option for home buyers who can meet these requirements:
- Be able to make a down payment
- Have a decent credit score (620 or above)
- Prove a stable income
If you meet these requirements, you may be able to qualify for a conventional loan.
