A Conventional Loan is a home loan insured by either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. They are used for the purchase of primary, secondary and investment properties and have more restrictive credit guidelines.
California Conventional loans are offered both as fixed rate and adjustable rate loans, althought fixed rate loans account for the majority of home financing. The loans are available in a variety of terms from 10 to 30 years. This loan type offers a consistent or “fixed” payment throughout the life of the loan. Standard fixed rate terms: 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 years. By choosing a shorter fixed rate option, you can realize a substantial savings in interest over the life of the loan.
