Understanding Conventional Loans

Mortgage Solutions Beyond Government Backing

At Mortgage Craft, our conventional loans adhere to the debt and income requirements established by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Our aim is to assist you in aligning your goals and objectives with the loan options and features that will pave the way toward attaining lasting financial stability.

  • Flexible Down Payment Options: Conventional mortgages offer a range of down payment choices, including as little as 3% down for qualified borrowers, making homeownership more accessible.
  • Lower Mortgage Insurance Costs: If you put down at least 20%, you typically won’t need private mortgage insurance (PMI), which can significantly reduce your monthly payment.
  • Competitive Interest Rates: Conventional loans often come with competitive interest rates, which can save you money over the life of the loan compared to higher-rate alternatives.
  • Flexible Property Types: Conventional loans can be used for various property types, from primary residences and second homes to investment properties.
  • Loan Variety: Conventional loans come in different term lengths, such as 15, 20, or 30 years, allowing you to choose the repayment schedule that best fits your financial goals and budget.

What is a conventional mortgage?

A conventional mortgage is a type of home loan that is not backed by a government agency like FHA or VA. It typically offers flexible down payment options and competitive interest rates, making it suitable for borrowers with good credit and stable finances.

Can I use a conventional loan to purchase an investment property?

Yes, conventional loans can be used to finance investment properties, including rental homes or properties for resale. However, specific guidelines and requirements may apply, so it’s best to consult with a mortgage professional to explore your options.

What are the credit score requirements for a conventional loan?

Credit score requirements for conventional loans can vary, but generally, a credit score of at least 620 is needed to qualify. Having a credit score above 740 can help you qualify for even lower interest rates from lenders.

What is the down payment requirement for a conventional loan?

Conventional loans offer flexible down payment options. Depending on the loan product selected, down payments can be as low as 3%. However, down payment requirements may vary based on factors such as financial status and the loan amount borrowed.

How is private mortgage insurance (PMI) handled with conventional loans?

Private mortgage insurance is required for conventional loans when the down payment is less than 20%. However, one advantage of conventional loans is that PMI can be canceled once the loan-to-value (LTV) ratio reaches 78%, or borrowers can request its termination at 80% if they meet certain criteria.
