Conventional Loan

Welcome to 1st 2nd Mortgage, where we offer conventional loan options tailored to meet your specific needs and financial goals. Our conventional loans provide a flexible and affordable financing solution for purchasing or refinancing your home.


Here are the key things you should know about our conventional loan product:

  1. Fixed or Adjustable Rates: With a conventional loan from 1st 2nd Mortgage, you have the option to choose between fixed or adjustable interest rates. Fixed-rate loans offer stability and predictability, with the same interest rate throughout the life of the loan. Adjustable-rate loans provide flexibility, with interest rates that may fluctuate over time based on market conditions.

  2. Flexible Loan Terms: Our conventional loans offer flexible loan terms to accommodate your budget and financial goals. Whether you prefer a shorter loan term for faster equity build-up or a longer loan term for lower monthly payments, we have options to suit your needs.

  3. Low Down Payment Options: While conventional loans typically require a down payment, we offer low down payment options to make homeownership more accessible. With as little as 3% down, you can qualify for a conventional loan and achieve your dream of homeownership without breaking the bank.

  4. No Mortgage Insurance: Unlike FHA loans, which require mortgage insurance premiums for the life of the loan, our conventional loans offer the option to avoid mortgage insurance altogether with a down payment of 20% or more. This can result in significant savings over the life of the loan and lower monthly payments for borrowers.

Who Qualifies?


Qualifications for a fixed-rate mortgage typically include:

  1. Credit Score: Lenders consider credit scores when evaluating mortgage applications. While specific requirements may vary among lenders, a higher credit score generally increases the likelihood of approval and may result in better loan terms, such as a lower interest rate. Typically, a credit score of 620 or higher is required to qualify for a fixed-rate mortgage, but some lenders may have higher or lower thresholds.

  2. Income and Employment: Lenders assess borrowers' income and employment stability to ensure they have the financial means to repay the loan. Borrowers typically need to provide proof of income, such as pay stubs, W-2 forms, or tax returns, to verify their employment status and income level. Lenders may also consider other sources of income, such as bonuses, commissions, or rental income.

  3. Debt-to-Income Ratio (DTI): Lenders evaluate borrowers' debt-to-income ratio, which compares their monthly debt payments to their gross monthly income. A lower DTI ratio indicates less financial strain and a higher likelihood of mortgage approval. While specific DTI requirements may vary, most lenders prefer a DTI ratio of 43% or lower, although some may accept higher ratios with compensating factors.

  4. Down Payment: Borrowers typically need to make a down payment when purchasing a home with a fixed-rate mortgage. The size of the down payment required depends on various factors, including the type of mortgage, loan amount, and lender requirements. Conventional fixed-rate mortgages often require a down payment of at least 3% to 20% of the home's purchase price, while government-backed loans such as FHA or VA loans may require lower down payments, sometimes as low as 3.5% or 0% for eligible borrowers.

  5. Property Appraisal: Lenders typically require a professional appraisal of the property to determine its value and ensure it serves as adequate collateral for the loan. The property appraisal helps protect both the lender and the borrower by ensuring the property's value aligns with the loan amount.


Meeting these qualifications demonstrates to lenders that borrowers have the financial stability and ability to repay the loan, increasing their chances of securing a fixed-rate mortgage with favorable terms and interest rates.
