Conventional Loan, House Icon.
Conventional
Home Loans

Typically, a fixed rate home loan that allows the borrower to put a down payment as low as 3%. Borrowers also can eliminate PMI once they hold 20% equity in their property.

  • Low Rates

  • Fixed or Adjustable Terms

  • Flexible Down Payments

Conventional Loan Highlights:

When the loan amount is within your counties loan limits, and adheres to guidelines set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, they are referred to as "Conventional" or "Conforming" loans.  The maximum conventional loan limit depends on the county and state the property is located in.

Conventional loans can either be fixed-rate or adjustable-rate. With a fixed-rate mortgage, borrowers get the luxury of knowing their interest rate is set for the entire term of the loan. On the other hand, with an adjustable-rate mortgage, the borrower has an introductory rate for a fixed period followed by periodic adjustments according to the specific benchmark.

If your credit and income qualify and you want to purchase a new home in Massachusetts or Rhode Island, a conventional loan may be the right choice for you. Conventional loans require a down payments as low as 3% for a fixed-rate term or as low as 5% for an adjustable-rate.

A "qualified veteran" is someone who is in active service, or who has served and was honorably discharged from active duty in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard. Those who were discharged because of service-connected disabilities and non-remarried surviving spouses of a service member may also qualify.

As of the 2024 VA update, the VA loan limit is $766,550 for most U.S counties. VA loan limits for high-cost counties top out at $1,149,825 for a single-family home.

  • 3.5% Down Payment

  • First Time Homebuyers

  • Low to Moderate Income

FHA Home Loan Highlights:

Low down-payment and flexible requirements for income, debt and credit make this loan ideal for "first time home-buyers" with limited savings.

Low credit score borrowers can still qualify for competitive rates to help keep monthly home ownership costs down.

FHA loan requirements include paying two types of mortgage insurance premiums: Up Front Mortgage Insurance Premium (UFMIP) which the borrower can pay as a lump sum in cash or include it in the loan amount, and an Annual MIP which is included as part of their monthly payment.

As of February 2023, UPMIP is 1.75% of the loan amount and "annual" MIP is approximately 0.55% of the loan amount. This amount does change from time to time so make sure you call us for updated amounts.

This loan product is great for low-to-moderate income buyers with limited funds for down-payment and closing costs. Your mortgage insurance premium is less than what you would pay for a conventional loan or FHA loan. It’s comprised of an upfront guarantee fee of 1% of your loan amount and a annual fee 0.35% of your loan amount added to your monthly payment.

The primary residence must be located in an eligible rural area. Contact us to determine if your subject property address falls into an USDA eligible area.
