Conventional Loans | Privately Held and Beneficial for All Home buyers
If you are in search of a loan that is insured directly through a private lender, then Rocky Mountain Mortgage Company has the right program for you! Our mortgage lenders have been able to assist homebuyers who are planning on signing up for a conventional mortgage loan. These specialized loans are known for having rather strict guidelines, but Rocky Mountain Mortgage Company can provide you with the one-on-one financial support you need.
How a Conventional Mortgage Loan Works
Your application process begins when you apply for preapproval. If you are preapproved for the loan, you can then begin the formal loan application. This formal application includes detailed questions about the type of loan, the property being purchased, and your personal finances. Once the application is received, the lender will order a title report on the property and schedule an appraisal. The application is then sent to underwriting, which is necessary for conventional loans where the underwriters will closely assess and examine information to determine the risk of lending the homebuyers money. Once these steps have been completed, you will be informed as to whether your conventional loan has been approved or denied.

Special Considerations to Qualify for a Conventional Home Loan
Homebuyers with established and positive credit reports who are on a solid financial footing are most likely to qualify for conventional mortgages. More specifically, the ideal candidate should have the following:
A credit score between 640 and Above
The higher that your credit score is, the lower you can expect your interest rate to be.
An acceptable debt-to-income ratio
The debt-to-income ratio is the sum of your monthly obligations compared to your monthly income.
A down payment of at least 5%
Lenders are able to lessen the down payment. If this takes place, however, the lenders will often require borrowers to take out private mortgage insurance, which is a monthly premium that is paid until they achieve a minimum principal balance of 20% of the original appraised value.
Conventional loans are optimal for homebuyers who want a home for investment purposes, as a second home, or want to purchase a property with a maximum amount of $510,400.
The Different Types of Conventional Mortgage Loans
There are two common types of conventional loans that Rocky Mountain Mortgage Company can help homebuyers apply for:
Conforming Conventional Mortgage Loans
In order to be considered for a conforming loan, you must be able to meet the guidelines set by the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac programs. These programs establish baseline loan limits as one of their ground rules.
Non-Conforming Conventional Mortgage Loans
Conventional loans that exceed the limit of conforming loans are non-conforming. These loans are not purchased by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac because they do not meet the loan requirements. Instead, non-conforming loans are funded by other lenders or private institutions.
