Financial Terms

Conventional Loan
A conventional mortgage loan is a traditional type of home loan that is not insured or guaranteed by the government. This means that the lender bears all the risk if the borrower defaults on their payments. Typically, conventional mortgage loans require a down payment of at least 20% of the purchase price, although some lenders may accept a lower down payment in exchange for private mortgage insurance (PMI). Conventional mortgage loans have fixed interest rates and typically have repayment terms of 15 or 30 years. They are offered by banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions, and the borrower's credit score and financial history are important factors in determining eligibility and interest rates. Compared to government-backed loans such as FHA or VA loans, conventional mortgage loans usually have stricter qualification requirements and may have higher interest rates. However, they also offer more flexibility in terms of loan amounts and property types eligible for financing. In summary, a conventional mortgage loan is a common financing option for home purchases that is not backed by the government but instead relies on the borrower's creditworthiness and typically requires a larger down payment compared to other types of home loans.
