What is a 1% Down First Time Home Buyer Conventional Mortgage Loan?

A “conventional mortgage” simply refers to any mortgage loan that is not insured or guaranteed by the federal government. Conventional mortgage loans can be both fixed mortgages or adjustable-rate mortgages. These types of loans may be conforming or non-conforming, with the former meeting the standards set forth by government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Be careful not to confuse conventional with conforming, as the two terms are very different. However, neither are considered government loans, despite the fact that Fannie and Freddie are now under government control.

One major factor that determines whether a mortgage is conforming or not is the loan amount – loans over the conforming loan limit are considered a jumbo mortgages and will come with a higher mortgage rate as a result. Still, both types of loans are considered conventional. These days, conventional mortgages (whether conforming or not) typically have higher down payment and credit score requirements than FHA and VA government loans, and if the LTV exceeds 80 percent on a conventional loan, private mortgage insurance (PMI) is required by the mortgage lender.

With Fannie Mae’s 1% percent down-payment offering, borrowers must still meet standard eligibility requirements, including underwriting, income documentation, and risk management standards. Any buyer can take advantage of these loans as long as at least one borrower or co-borrower is a first-time buyer. These loans will require private mortgage insurance (PMI).
