Conventional Mortgage Options in Scottsdale, AZ
Conforming Conventional Loan
Conforming loans are those that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac can guarantee; they’re more plentiful because they’re less risky. In Scottsdale in 2023, a conforming loan is any non-government loan of $726,200 or less.
Jumbo loans are conventional home loans of $726,200 or higher, which Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae do not guarantee. As jumbo loans are riskier for lenders, they require a higher FICO score and a substantial down payment.
With fixed-rate conventional home loans, you’ll have the same interest rate throughout the life of the loan. This is great if you’re on a strict budget or want a consistent mortgage payment. If interest rates drop, you can always refinance into an adjustable-rate loan.
Adjustable-Rate Conventional Mortgages
Adjustable-rate conventional home loans will have rates that fluctuate within specific parameters. This is the conventional loan type preferred by younger borrowers, as the introductory rates are often relatively low.
