Does Your Income Make You Nervous About Buying a Home?

CBM Mortgage offers conventional loans with as little as a 3% down payment. A conventional loan is not guaranteed or insured by the federal government and conforms to the loan limits set forth by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Conventional mortgages are great for homebuyers with good or excellent credit and follow rather conservative guidelines.


Some Benefits of Choosing a Conventional Mortgage:

  • Shorter and less complicated approval process
  • Reduce or avoid mortgage insurance premiums
  • Competitive interest rates
