    IS A CONVENTIONAL LOAN FOR ME?

    With a good credit profile and a down payment above 3%, the conventional loan may be a powerful tool for your purchase. 

    If your credit score is 620 or higher, you may qualify for a “conforming” conventional loan at Northern. If your credit score is in the 700s, you may qualify for more favorable terms.

    Like all loan programs, eligibility is based on a range of factors— income and credit health are only two elements. A loan officer can determine your eligibility for a conventional loan or similar loan types!

    Real People. Real Results

    Our final mortgage was a full 0.5% below any of the nearest competitors! But the real deciding factor was the service from our Loan Officer. They SHOWED his skill by talking straight business. In the end, they exceeded all expectations. They focus on DELIVERING quality. You will be well rewarded with the honest help they can offer.

    Simply put, the team at Northern Mortgage did the work and made the difference for my wife and I. They were so clear and always felt like they were in our side. Truly felt like a blessing working with them.
