CONVENTIONAL LOANS

Conventional 30 year – This fixed-rate mortgage is the most popular option, in large part, because of its fixed interest rate and lower monthly payments.

Conventional 15 year – Compared to the 30 year, this mortgage will usually offer a lower interest rate and will accrue less interest over the term of the loan. While your monthly payment will be higher, you will be able to pay off your home more quickly. This mortgage option is often considered by those looking to refinance their home.
