Conventional Loan Programs

Conventional loans are not insured by the FHA or VA. Usually, these are a good option for homebuyers with strong credit history and stable employment status.

A Conventional loan refers to a mortgage that follows the guidelines of government sponsored enterprises (GSEs) such as Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac but is not guaranteed or insured by the federal government.

Conventional mortgages can be classified as conforming or non-conforming. A conforming loan meets the parameters set forth by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac while a non-conforming loan is one which exceeds the maximum loan limits established by these GSEs.

State Bond Programs

Thinking About Using Grant Funds To Purchase A Home?

Most grants are First Time Home Buyer programs and the grant underwriter provides a subsidy to assist in the home purchase. Geographic restrictions, income limits and/or maximum amounts often apply. Oftentimes, the subsidy is a grant which must be repaid if participants do not own and occupy the home as their principal residence for a specified period of time. Participants are responsible for all costs above the subsidy.

How to Find a Grant Program that works for you:

  1. Find out what funding is available in your area. Search HUD, non-profit organizations, local government sites, or government grant database for home mortgage grants.
  2. Review the eligibility requirements. Some grants may have very little limitation. Others may require a credit check and income verification, and/or classes and counseling.
  3. Once you have identified grants that you are interest in, submit you application to the appropriate agency. Turnaround time could be anywhere from 48 hours to several weeks, on average you could expect to receive an answer in a couple of weeks.
