Conventional Loans

 

A Conventional Mortgage is a home loan that is not guaranteed or insured by a government agency, such as the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), or the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). Conventional Mortgages can have a fixed rate or an adjustable rate. Conventional loan borrowers who put a 20% downpayment don’t have to pay for mortgage insurance, which is typically required with lower down payments or government-backed loans. Lenders view conventional loans as riskier because they are not guaranteed by the government if a buyer defaults, so these mortgages can have tougher requirements to qualify.
