What is a Conventional Home Loan?

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) defines a conventional loan as “any mortgage loan that is not insured or guaranteed by the government, such as Federal Housing Administration, Depart of Veterans Affairs, or Department of Agriculture loan program.”

There are two types of conventional loans:

  • Conforming Loans – 

Mortgages following the guidelines and conditions set forth by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are called conforming loans. Conforming Loan lenders approve and finance the loans before selling them to investors. The loans are sold to investors on open markets with lower interest rates than non-conforming loans. The 2024 conforming loan limit determined by the Federal Housing Finance Agency is $766,550 in most counties.

All conforming loans are conventional loans, but not all conventional loans are conforming loans. Conventional-conforming loans are the most common type of mortgage. Lenders require a FICO score of 620 to qualify for a conforming loan. The down payment requirement could be 3 – 5% of the purchase price. The loan must carry private mortgage insurance (PMI) if a borrower doesn’t come up with a 20% down payment.

  • Non-Conforming Loans – 

Any other home loan that does not meet the requirements of government-sponsored enterprises (GSE) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is non-conforming. A loan might not conform for two fundamental reasons: (a) The loan amount exceeds the conforming loan limit, or (b) it fails to meet a condition established by the Federal Housing Finance Agency.

Types of Non-Conforming Loans

– FHA Loans 

An FHA loan is a mortgage with the backing of the federal government. The Federal Housing Administration insures it under HUD’s authority or the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Many first-time home buyers use FHA home loans due to their lenient qualification requirements.

– VA Loans

The Department of Veterans Affairs partially backs or guarantees VA loans, which are zero-down mortgage options offered by private lenders. It is reserved for US servicemen and women and their eligible spouses.

– USDA Loans

USDA home loans are mortgages used to finance properties in rural areas. They offer a 0% down payment and have restrictive income and property guidelines.

– Jumbo Loans

A jumbo loan is a type of mortgage used to finance properties that are too expensive for a conventional conforming loan. According to the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the maximum amount for a conforming loan is $647,200 in most counties. A jumbo loan is needed for homes that exceed the conforming loan limit.
