Conventional loans have multiple variables including loan terms, interest rates and duration.

Conventional loans provide flexibility

Conventional loans are very flexible because they allow you to have multiple home equity loans on your property as well as refinancing whenever you deem it necessary. This flexibility allows you to use your home as an investment and create financial freedom at the same time you are enjoying the stability of home ownership.

Integrity, Transparency, Knowledge and Availability are what makes Tampa One stand out – experience the difference

For as little as 3% down*, Tampa One can get you a conventional loan with the best available interest rates and the lowest possible monthly payment. Many large mortgage companies and banks can only give you one interest rate option with a loan offer because they are forced to lend their own money. Some of the small local mortgage companies have the ability to shop for rates, but they’re stuck with whatever their lending partners have to offer. Tampa One has the ability to get you the best rates because we work closely with multiple A-rated mortgage companies and we are a direct lender. This means we can shop for the best rates nationwide and Tampa One also has the ability to directly loan you our money to buy your home. At Tampa One our process is built on integrity, knowledge, transparency and availability to ensure that you get the best possible outcome for yourself, your loved ones and your future.

Most common questions about conventional loans

Condos, modular homes, second homes, investment properties, primary residences, planned unit developments, manufactured homes and 1-4 family residences are all eligible for conventional loans.
At Tampa One we get conventional loans within 20 days when the client hands in all documents within one day of us making the request. With the typically mortgage broker it takes 30 to 45 days to get a conventional loan. In some situations we’ve had to put conventional loans together in as little 9 days after the client’s previous mortgage company was unable to get them a loan. We prefer not to operate under time constraints, but we’re no stranger to making loans happen when others have failed.
The nationwide rule for this type of loan is – the maximum amount you can borrow is somewhere between $417,000 and $729,000. The truth is the number is based on the location of the property and if it’s a single family home or a multifamily home. The vast majority of single family homes have a maximum loan amount of $417,000.
