15 Year Conventional Mortgage Loan

What is a Conventional Mortgage Loan?

  • The Conventional Loan is the most common loan used for purchasing a home. Conventional loan applicants typically have above average credit and are planning on a significant down payment to minimize or eliminate paying mortgage insurance (PMI) when buying a home. Conventional loans give the option for 10-to-30 year fixed payments. The 15 Year Conventional Mortgage Loan will have an interest right lower than the 30 Year Conventional Mortgage Loan and the payment for the 15 Year will be higher for those seeking to pay off their home quicker.
