Conventional Loans

Today I want to share some information for those who are looking for more information on Conventional Mortgage Loans.

What is a Conventional Loan?

A Conventional loan is a loan that is not backed by a federal agency, but instead backed by private lenders such as Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. Typically, conventional loans may require more from the borrower than an FHA LOAN.

What are the requirements for a Conventional Loan?

  • Primary residence or investment
  • 3% Down (first-time homebuyer only)
  • Minimum 620 credit score
  • NO Mortgage Insurance if more than 20% down
  • Down payment can be a gift
  • Seller allowed to contribute towards closing costs

What types of conventional loans are there?


A conforming loan is a loan that adheres to the loan limits set by Fannie and Freddie.

Conventional (Conforming)
  • $647,200, IN MOST COUNTIES as of 2022
  • Most common loan type.
  • Loan amount must be $647,200, or less in most counties
