Lets Get Started

Conventional Loans

If you’re getting ready to take out a loan for your home, you probably have some questions. Especially for the red hot real estate market in St. Louis right now, it’s worth exploring your loan options, and which ones are most suited for your situation. If you’re looking for fewer steps to closing, more flexible qualifications, and a solution that is less costly than mortgage insurance, you want to look no further than to a Conventional Loan.

Conventional Loans come with both fixed and adjustable rates of up to $435,100 loan amounts in most St. Louis markets today, with even higher amounts available in the higher cost areas. Very competitive in nature, Conventional Loans average St. Louis terms range from five to thirty

Unlike other loans, Conventional Loans can be used for a variety of requirements, including:

  • Purchases
  • Rate and term refinances
  • Cash out refinances

With a Conventional Loan, you can cash out up to 80% of your home’s value, counting on a debt to income ratio up to 50%. These loans offer options with NO PMI, even without the large down payment at the beginning. If you’re looking at primary, secondary, or investment properties, a Conventional Loan is compatible with all three options. These loans can also be used for condo, single family homes, and up to 1-4 unit properties. Providing you with a month without mortgage payments, Conventional Loans include options both with and without escrows or impounds.

What credit score do I need for a Conventional Loan?

Typically, in the St. Louis market, you will need a credit score down to 620 to be approved. When you go through the approval process, you can count on a same day pre-approval through our company.

"Being a Business Owner is About
More Than Just Bottom Lines."

“Running The Home Loan Expert is two jobs in one.  On one side, I lead our team who help customers fulfill their home ownership dreams. On the other hand, I organize and put forth a lot of time in to giving back to the communities that we serve. Whether it is donations, sponsorship, climbing Mt. Rainier, marching in the desert, stepping in the boxing ring, or donating my time, I do whatever I can to help those in need. The Home Loan Expert understands that, without our local community, we can’t be successful, that’s why we believe giving back to those who have helped us build our business is so important.”
