A Conventional Mortgage adheres to the guidelines of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – two government-created companies built to buy and sell mortgages. It is typically paid monthly over a 30-year time-framebut additional options are also available. Factors that help determine the interest rate and payment schedule a borrower can qualify for are the applicant’s credit history, loan amount and down payment on the property.
A Conventional Mortgage offers a set interest rate so borrowers always know the pay schedule and allows homeowners to eventually refinance.
