The conventional mortgage most people think of is the “conforming” loan that meets the requirements of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Conventional loans have a maximum loan amount of $726,200 in 2023 for most areas.

Conventional loans typically require a down-payment that can be as low as 3% for first time home buyers, otherwise it will be 15%. If putting down less than 20%, borrowers will be required to purchase private mortgage insurance (PMI). They will also have a minimum debt to income rates (DTI) which is the percentage of monthly that goes towards paying off debt.
