One of the most popular types of home loans in the San Francisco Bay Area is conventional financing. Conventional home loans fit within the financing limits set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Why consider a conventional loan? This type of loan is easy to customize to your needs, especially if you have a good credit score.
With a conventional loan, you can choose a fixed or adjustable mortgage rate. You can pick a loan term which can help you pay off your home on a timeframe which is comfortable for you. A loan like this can be structured to help you achieve your homeownership goals.
To qualify for a conventional loan, you must b applying for financing within the conforming loan limits established by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Here are the conforming loan limits for San Francisco County:
Because the Bay Area is a high-cost housing market, these conforming loan limits are higher than those which are in place for much of the country.
These are also the conforming loan limits for Marin, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, San Benito, Monterey, Napa, and Contra Costa. The loan limits are lower in some of the other nearby counties.
If you are not sure what the conventional loan limits are for the county where you would like to buy a home, this is something we can inform you of during your consultation.
