For homebuyers looking to finance their purchase, there are two kinds of home loans: conventional and non-conventional. Conventional loans are defined by NerdWallet as “any type of mortgage that isn’t backed by a government agency” like the Fair Housing Authority (FHA) or the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Conventional home loans are the most popular type of home loan for good reason – read on to learn why a conventional loan might be the best option for your financial situation. 


Why Choose a Traditional Home Loan?  

There are a few reasons you might choose a conventional loan over a non-conventional loan when you purchase a new home. For one thing, if you already own your primary residence, and are seeking to purchase a second home or investment property, you will be ineligible for many non-conventional home loans on the new property. The conforming loan limits for conventional loans are typically higher than for non-conventional loans as well, meaning with a conventional loan you are free to purchase a home of any value (so long as you qualify)! 

One of the other most attractive qualities of a conventional home loan is the flexibility that conventional loans can afford prospective homeowners. Regardless of your financial situation, or housing needs, a seasoned loan officer like a member of the team at The Federal Savings Bank can help you find the right loan for you and your family. Oftentimes that loan will be a conventional loan, because of fewer restrictions placed on the loan by state or federal agencies.
