Conventional Home Loans

Conventional home loans are the most popular mortgage product in Texas.

For Dallas home buyers, there's a large mix of low- and no-downpayment mortgages from which to choose. Conventional mortgages are loans underwritten and insured by private lenders and investors instead of mortgages that are government backed like FHA Loans and VA Home Loans.

Conventional loans are "conforming" if they are generally $453,100 or less for a single-family home. There are also established guidelines for borrower credit scores, income requirements and minimum down payments. For example, most conventional loans require somewhere between 3 percent and 20 percent down.

Conventional Refinance

Homeowners in Dallas with existing mortgages may be eligible to refinance their current home loan using a conventional refinance loan.

The Conventional Refinance Loan allows Texas homeowners who have a existing home loan to refinance and take advantage of lower mortgage interest rates and lower monthly payments, shortened or lengthened loan terms. You can also refinance an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) into a fixed rate mortgage.

We offer great low rates on Conventional Loans for borrowers in the Dallas area.
