FREE Conventional Loan Pre-Approval

With a Conventional loan you could purchase a home for NO money down! Take the first step here by getting pre-approved quickly and easily!

Conventional Loans

Unless you think you may qualify for a government-backed loan like a VA or FHA loan, odds are a conventional loan will be one of the first types of mortgages you will look at. What is a conventional loan? Put simply, a conventional loan is any mortgage which is not guaranteed by a government agency.

If so, you could qualify for a California VA home loan, which is a wonderful opportunity to move into the home of your dreams in California on very reasonable terms. While California’s cost of living can be very high, you are in an excellent position to take advantage of all this amazing state has to offer without getting buried under exorbitant housing costs.

There are a number of different types of conventional loans in California:

  • Conforming loans. Conventional loans conforming to the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac guidelines for lending limits fall under this category. While not all conventional mortgages are conforming loans, all conforming loans are a form of conventional loan. The current conventional loan limit for a conforming loan in San Jose, California is $625,500 for a single unit. A conforming conventional loan is a good starting point in your search, unless you are sure you need another type of loan.
  • Nonconforming, or “Jumbo” loans. Nonconforming conventional loans, also known as jumbo mortgages, are loans which fall above the lending limit mentioned above. Since we live in a very high-cost area, a surprisingly large number of mortgages fall into this category, even for relatively modest homes.
  • Portfolio loans. These are conventional loans where the lenders set the guidelines. They may include special features that other loans do not. You might be able to use investments as securities, for example.
  • Nonprime loans. These loans are marketed to customers with low credit scores. While there are rules for nonprime loans, they do tend to be a great deal more expensive than other types of conventional loans, which makes it extra important to find a good deal.

As you can see, there is a huge amount of variety in the world of conventional mortgages.

When you get in touch with us, we will be able to:

  • Help you figure out what types of loans you qualify for. If there is any chance that you qualify for a government-backed program like a VA or FHA loan, we will see to it that you get approved. That way you can save money and enjoy the best loan terms.
  • If you do need a conventional loan, we will assist you in choosing the product which bets fits your needs.
  • Once we figure out what type of loan would be best for your situation, we will help you find the best possible loan from a trustworthy, established California mortgage lender. We have access to special deals and discounts through our vast network of lenders that you simply will not be able to find on your own.

Shawn has help my family twice, both times with a refinance with cash out. Shawn is patient, helpful, and very insightful about what is actually possible. The team he works with during the loan process are some of the most helpful people in the business. The refinancing process with C2 Financial was very smooth, and throughout the process you are informed of the next steps and the status of your loan. Shawn is also very willing to give you phone call to ease your concerns. I know in the future where to turn to when in need of a mortgage broker. Thanks again Shawn.

Shawn helped us in getting pre-approval as well as under-written for our home loan application. Being first time home buyers, it was amazing home he explained different terms and pieces in lending process. He has great deal of knowledge and is good in providing charts / detailed comparisons of different scenarios (like different downpayment amounts, total purchase price etc).Plus: Online application process, super easy to upload documents etc. Would definitely recommend him and his team..He should be able to help with loans for properties under litigations as well !!

My husband and I used Shawn to purchase our first home, and he made the process run smoothly from start to finish. He asked great questions to get a clear picture of what we were looking for, and he gave us a great menu of options to fit our needs and budget. He recommended that we set up a TBD loan, which made our offer stronger, and the escrow process shorter. In hindsight, I think having the TBD loan documentation in hand when we put in our bid was one of the reasons our offer was accepted. Shawn was incredibly professional and communicated well with our real estate agent and every other person involved with the loan underwriting process. He gave us all thorough information and provided us the best loan options available....and we closed in 3 weeks, in the most competitive market in the country! Couldn’t have done this without Shawn.

Sean,I just wanted to let you know that it was a pleasure working with you. It was great to receive your updates so that everyone knew where we were in the process. The seller's agent was able to keep her client informed, which made us all look good.You and your team performed on time, except for the slight delay by the seller at the end. I never had to bug you about anything. These are all signs of a good mortgage broker who does his job well.

Shawn is a great mortgage lender who will be there for you till the home closing is done. He is very responsive, transparent, providing great rates. For a first time buyer like me, it was really important that I had somebody to help me out with all the doubts regarding loan escrow etc. and Shawn would always reply promptly and patiently. He made the whole home buying process a breeze. I would recommend Shawn for any mortgage brokering needs.

Communication communication communication has been top notch with Shawn. Through out the process Shawn was always quick to respond to any inquires or questions needed. Even when he was in another appointment he promptly let me know that he would get back right away. He actually did everything faster than what he promised. One of the best parts about his was his status updates. He did a very good job on keeping the buyers, sellers, selling agent, and listing agent informed to where everything was in the process. Transparency is key, and he did the best job at it. Shawn is one of the best and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and his services.
