    Conventional Loans

    A conventional loan is a loan that the federal government does not back. You might want this type of loan if your credit score is good or excellent. You have a minimum down payment, and the lender will look at your debt to income ratio. You might also need to bring cash to the closing to cover the closing cost. With these loans, you can obtain a fixed rate where your interest rate does not change, or you can get an adjustable rate where your interest can go up or down depending on the market.

    Non-Conventional Federal Government Loans

    A non-conventional loan is backed by the federal government. They will offer more flexible options for you if your credit is less than perfect. You might also qualify if your income is not very high.

    • FHA Loans: If your credit score is not great, this might be the loan for you. They require small down payments, and you can qualify with a score below 600.
    • VA Loans: VA loans are for active duty military personnel and veterans. No down payment is required, and you do not have to be a first time homebuyer.
