Conventional Loan

The flexible home lending option

A conventional home generally has fewer underwriting requirements and limitations than FHA, VA, or USDA guaranteed loans. Conventional loans have jumbo loan options that allow financing of larger loans which may not be available under a government guaranteed loan option.

*Private mortgage insurance is required on conventional loans with loan amounts greater than 80% of the home value. PMI mortgage insurance provides lenders with protection against losses against mortgage payment default. Private mortgage insurance can be paid by the lender (LPMI) or the borrower (BPMI). The total monthly payment with LPMI is often less than the total monthly payment with BPMI, but unlike BPMI, LPMI is assessed for the life of the loan. This means that you might pay more with LPMI over the life of the loan. You can request cancellation of BPMI when your loan principal balance reaches 80% of the original property value (lesser of the initial appraised value or purchase price), otherwise BPMI is automatically terminated at 78%.
