Conventional Loans

The term conventional loans is commonly used for any loan that is underwritten to standards set by FNMA (often called Fannie Mae) or FRMC (often called Freddie Mac).  The conventional loan limit hasn’t changed since 2006 and is currently at 417,000 for all states in the US.

Conventional Loan Information

Conventional loans can be fixed rate mortgages, adjustable rate mortgages, balloon mortgages, or hybrid loans. Almost any type of mortgage that you can get if it isn’t backed by the FHA or VA or USDA and is below the conventional loan limit, is considered a conventional loan.

Conventional Loans After Foreclosure:

Getting a conventional loan after a foreclosure is one of the common ways that people will finance the home they choose to buy after foreclosure.  The waiting period for buying a home with a conventional loan after foreclosure is 3 years.

Conventional Loans After a Short Sale

Conventional loans after a short sale are a common choice at financing a home after having a short sale in the past.  Getting a conventional loan after a short sale requires a waiting period of at least 2 years  for most lenders.

Conventional Loan After Deed-in-Lieu

Most lenders treat the waiting period for a deed-in-lieu the same as a Foreclosure which means that the waiting period is 3 years.
