Conventional mortgage down payment. Minimal down payment mortgage of 3%.In every case, conventional mortgage financing requires a minimum down payment of 3% to 5%.  Actually, many borrowers buy their first home with the minimum down payment.  Subsequently, putting down 20% down is not as critical as one may believe.  In fact, in many cases it is advantageous to put down less rather than more.  Often times it is better to use the banks money rather than your own!  Regardless, figuring out the down payment (plus closing costs), is extremely important.  As a highly rated mortgage broker, Fortress knows how to seamlessly provide the crucial answers.  We give you this information upfront, and without any obligation by way of our mortgage worksheet.  Hands down, the worksheet is an example of what separates us from other mortgage brokers.  Fill out the general inquiry form now, and let’s get going!

Conventional Mortgage FICO Score

Conventional mortgage FICO scoreRealistically, Fannie coupled with Freddie accept FICO scores down to 640.  Although this may be true, it is important to realize the FICO score is strictly defined.  In other words, the FICO score is not the same as a free credit pull.  In fact, it is typically LOWER and in some cases considerably.

Where the Money Comes From

Conventional mortgage. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Where the mortgage money comes from.First, a quick lesson on who funds your conventional mortgage.  All in all, conventional mortgage financing comes from Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac.  Both companies are, indeed, government-sponsored enterprises, effectively functioning under federal oversight.  Furthermore, these entities are commonly referred to as GSE’s.  The main goal of the GSE is to flow money into the economy.  Essentially, the conventional mortgage serves as a vital conduit for this purpose.  Consequently, banks provide loans to the public, facilitating financial transactions and economic growth.  And, in order to do so, the GSE must have a “source.”  The source is usually a big name brand, such as Rocket, United Wholesale, or Bank of America.  All in all, the federal government is involved regardless of whatever lending institution funds the loan.  So, say hello to Uncle Sam the mortgage man!
