Conventional Loans

A conventional loan is a mortgage loan that is not backed by any government agency and instead follows guidelines established by government-sponsored enterprises (GSE).

Why a Conventional Loan?

One of the benefits of a conventional loan is Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI), which is inexpensive or not required for down payments of at least 20%. In addition, unlike FHA or VA loans, conventional loans are available on second homes or investments properties.
