The requirements for a Conventional mortgage loan can vary from person to person and the lending institution that will be approving your home loan. Some banks will have more requirements but offer better program terms, while others might offer less requirements but will cost you more.

To qualify for a Conventional Mortgage Loan, you need:
- Have a credit score of 620 and more.
- You debt-to-income ratio (DTI) needs to be below 43% for a conventional loan. Although we have Lenders that would accept up to 50% DTI with other qualifying factors. Your DTI calculates by taking the total amount of your existing monthly debts (like rent, car payment, credit card payments, student debt, etc.) divided by your pre-tax monthly income.
- Be ready for the Down payment. While many conventional loans don’t require a big down payment, the more money you put down, the better your chances of qualifying for a lower interest rate. You can get a Conventional Loan with as low as 3% down, but in order to avoid paying Mortgage Insurance, you’ll need at least 20%.
