Conventional Loan Benefits

A fully amortized Conventional loan is a mortgage in which the same principal and interest payment is paid every month, from the beginning of the loan to the end of the loan. Two important factors of a Conventional Loan are the term of the loan and the loan-to-value. They can be whatever the eligible borrower is comfortable with. Eligible borrowers can put a down payment of as little as 3% on a Conventional Loan. However, if the loan-to-value is higher than 80% the borrower will pay private mortgage insurance. The interest rate on a Conventional Loan can be fixed (does not change throughout the life of the loan) or adjustable (adjusts in accordance with loan product).
