Loan types
Conventional mortgage
Simply put, a conventional mortgage is a loan that's not backed by a government agency such as the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) or Veteran Affairs (VA). There are two types of conventional loans: conforming and nonconforming. Conforming loans follow lending rules set by the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac). When a loan doesn't follow these lending rules, it's considered non-conforming. There are a number of factors that may cause a loan to be non-conforming, generally loan amount is a key factor.
Things to consider
While a 30-year, fixed rate mortgage is a popular conventional loan, you have other options such as a 15-year fixed rate loan or a 7/6 ARM1 to name a few. Think about your current budget, as well as your longer-term financial goals as you plan.
