Conventional Loans

A conventional loan is not issued or insured by a federal agency and is usually a 30-year fixed rate term that usually requires a 10 - 25% down payment and often allows for a better interest rate.

  • Simply a loan that is not issued or insured by a federal agency
  • Usually a 30-year fixed rate term
