Conventional loans are the most popular type of mortgage loans offered by non-government sponsored lenders. A conventional mortgage adheres and conforms to the guidelines set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It may have either a fixed rate or adjustable rate. This differs from FHA and VA loans which are insured by the federal government which often borrowers have to pay a funding fee.
While many think that a 20% down payment is required for all conventional loans, many lenders now offer lower down payment options. New programs now allow home buyers to put as little as 3% down of the purchase price.
Loan limit: This is the maximum borrowing amount within a certain mortgage loan category. For instance, the maximum amount for a conforming single-family home loan in San Diego County is $649,750. There are caps for other products as well, including FHA and VA mortgage programs. They also vary by county and are based on median home prices.
