A Great Loan with Great Features
Conventional loans are not backed by a government agency. While qualifications may be tougher, they offer great rates, many down payment options, and flexible terms. You generally need a good to strong credit score to qualify for a loan of this type. Conventional loans are broken down into these two main categories:
- Conforming Loans
Loans that have a maximum loan amount set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
- Non-conforming Loans
Loans that don't meet Fannie and Freddie's standards. There three main reasons why a loan might not conform:
a. It is large, reaching the "Jumbo" standard
b. A fixed and adjustable-rate loan is available
c. Down payments may be as low as 5% or 10%
