About Conventional Loans
Mutual of Omaha Mortgage offers conventional loan programs to well-qualified borrowers. Conventional loans have terms and conditions that follow the guidelines set forth by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
With favorable rates and terms, conventional loans have been a popular choice for homebuyers. If clients are able to meet the down payment, income and credit requirements, conventional loans typically offer more flexibility and a wider array of loan programs and terms. And Mutual of Omaha Mortgage offers fixed-rate and adjustable rate conventional mortgages to meet the lending needs of your clients.
