Conventional Loans

What is a Conventional Loan?

Mortgage Trends

Conventional Loans without the Hassle!

There are scores of mortgage loans, but they generally fall into two broad categories: Loans that are insured or guaranteed by the government, such as FHA, VA and USDA loans, and loans not insured or guaranteed by the government, which are called conventional loans. The majority of home loans are processed with a conventional loan.

So, what’s the best loan for you? Government-guaranteed or conventional? Because conventional loans generally have fewer restrictions than government-guaranteed loans, Inverness Capital has more discretion to offer their borrowers more flexible terms, features, and benefits.

Conventional Loan Benefits

✓ Down payments as low as 3%
✓ Fewer restrictions compared with government-back loans, such as no military affiliation (VA) or rural area (USDA) required
✓ No upfront mortgage insurance required
✓ Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) can be canceled after 20 percent equity is achieved. A borrower must initiate MI termination based on the original value of the property if that property is their principal residence or second home, and the borrower has an acceptable payment record.
✓ Higher credit scores can result in a lower interest rate
✓ Less strict appraisal and property requirements than FHA, VA, or USDA loans
✓ Loan processing is faster
✓ Term lengths can vary between 15 and 30 years
