A conventional loan is a mortgage that is not guaranteed or insured by any government agency such as FHA, VA, or USDA. Conventional loans are either conforming or non-conforming. Conforming mortgages are required to conform to underwriting guidelines and loan limits set by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, whereas non-conforming mortgages have loan amounts higher than the loan limits set by Fannie Mae / Freddie Mac.
Conventional loans are great for many home buyers because of their faster home loan process, low costs, and added flexibility. When applying for a conventional loan, you must meet three initial requirements:
Another benefit to taking out a conventional loan is the flexibility they provide for different types of local properties. Eligible properties for conventional loans include single-family homes, condominiums, multi-unit properties, and planned unit developments.
So, if you have a decent credit score and available funds to make a down payment on an eligible property, it is likely you qualify for a conventional loan.
Most importantly: RESEARCH. Before taking out a loan, make sure to speak with a licensed Loan Officer about the perfect loan for you, and look into mortgage loan mistakes. Some of the most common mistakes people make when applying for a conventional loan is not checking their credit beforehand and ignoring the real expenses of homeownership.

We recently had the distinct honor and pleasure to work with Mike Zamani (of CostPro) to refinance our home mortgage.
Mike made our journey through today’s finance world a smooth process and actually somewhat easy. He was always available to answer questions, offer explanations promptly, patiently, and competently. Mike’s communication style and even his voice, which is crisp, succinct, yet calming helped us feel we were in very good hands.
Beyond Mike himself, his team were also very efficient, competent, and worked with us to assure things happened smoothly.
We highly recommend Mike Zamani! A gentleman and scholar indeed, with a great personality to boot!
Thanks again Mike!
It’s the day after I closed on my Re-Fi and I still can’t believe it! I was contacted by a bank and after looking at my file, they said I needed to get a co-signer! I forgot about doing it until I got a call from Tony. He looked everything over and thought it was doable. They put Tony through the wringer. No matter what we gave them, they wanted more. Finally, they ran out of things to ask us and said YES! If anyone but Tony had called me I would not of had the same result. I will be forever grateful!!Liz S.
To whom it may concern,
this is to confirm that Brian Mays, Lee Garoutte, and their team are some of the most dedicated people to work with, they went out of the way and bent over backwards to make sure that my loan went through. They went over and above to get the task completed. I highly recommend Brian, Lee, their team to anyone who is trying to get their loan approved.
