Flexibility and Versatility.

I’m looking for flexibility in loan terms and pricing and I have good credit and money to put down.

The Conventional Mortgage

A Conventional Mortgage is simply any mortgage loan that is not insured or guaranteed by the federal government. Conventional Mortgages typically require a higher down payment, usually 5%–20%. They also have higher income and credit score requirements than government loans. Conventional Mortgages can have a fixed interest rate or an adjustable interest rate. Typical fixed-rate loans have a term of 15 or 30 years. With an Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM), the interest rate stays constant for a term and then fluctuates based on market conditions.
