A conventional mortgage loan is secured by the backing of a private lender, unlike FHA or VA loans, which are guaranteed by the federal government. Good credit, steady income and a 20% down payment means you will get a much lower fixed rate of interest. You should also keep in mind that the higher down payment you are making on a conventional mortgage loan will enable you to build a higher level of equity much faster. With this type of loan, if you cannot manage the 20% down payment, you may need to get Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). Under the terms of a conventional mortgage loan, you will normally be required to pay the full amount of the loan at a fixed interest rate over the course of 30 years. Read More
