30 Year Conventional Mortgage Loan

What is a Conventional Loan?


  • The Conventional Loan is the most common loan used for purchasing a home. Conventional mortgage 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 30 Year Conventional Mortgage Loan will have an interest right higher than the 15 Year Conventional Mortgage Loan, but will offer the benefit of a lower payment to loan applicants.
