A conventional mortgage is a home loan that isn’t backed by a government agency, such as the FHA or VA. Conventional mortgages often meet the down payment and income requirements set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and they often conform to the loan limits set by the Federal Housing Finance Administration (FHFA).
An FHA loan is a mortgage issued by an FHA-approved lender and insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). Designed for low-to-moderate-income borrowers, FHA loans require a lower minimum down payments and credit scores than many conventional loans.
A VA loan is a mortgage loan available through a program established by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (previously the Veterans Administration). The VA sets the qualifying standards, dictates the terms of the mortgages offered and guarantees a portion of the loan, but doesn’t actually offer the financing. VA home loans are provided by private lenders, such as banks and mortgage companies, instead.

Mark and his team always go the extra step. I’ve worked with him multiple times and he never stops exceeding expectations. He’s my go-to for all things mortgage lending as I know he always works to get his clients the best rate possible!
Cody did a great job communicating and was on top of everything as the process progressed. I couldn’t have purchased my beautiful home without his committment!
Matthew was a great communicator and thoroughly explained the process. He made himself available at any time for questions and provided timely updates. I trusted him to get us the best rate given our individual circumstances and he provided good advice on our options.
Working with Sam, Justin, Leanne, and Annalese made the purchasing process so easy on us, especially since we are first time home buyers. They made sure our stress levels were minimized, made sure we had everything we needed to ensure a smooth loan process and they are all very knowledgeable and wonderful to work with! We couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to help us through this exciting experience!
