Conventional Loans
in Los Angeles

FREE Mortgage Rate Quote

When shopping for a home loan in Los Angeles, one versatile option to consider is a conventional loan, also known as a conforming loan. A conventional loan conforms to the limits established by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for financing. So long as the amount you need to borrow to purchase a home falls under those limits, conventional financing is a possibility.

What Are the Conventional Loan Limits for Los Angeles?

As of 2019, here are the conventional loan limits for LA:

One Unit Limit:


Two Unit Limit:


Three Unit Limit:


Four Unit Limit:


Many homes in the Los Angeles metropolitan area can be purchased with conventional financing. Conventional loan limits in some of the surrounding counties are lower.

For example, here are the 2019 conventional loan limits in Riverside:

One-Unit Limit:


Two-Unit Limit:


Three-Unit Limit:


Four-Unit Limit:


If you are not sure what the conforming loan limits are in the area where you are shopping for a home, I can let you know the applicable caps for conventional financing.

There are, of course, many Los Angeles homes that require more financing than you can receive through a conventional loan. For those properties, consider applying for a jumbo loan.

What Will You Qualify for When You Apply for a
Conventional Loan in LA?

The interest rate and terms governing a conventional loan in Los Angeles depend on your qualification criteria. When extending you loan offers, lending companies evaluate:

Your credit score as well as your debt-to-income ratio and other important financial measures.

The down payment amount that you can make.

Factors involving your employment.

The more competitive you are as a borrower, the more affordable loan offers you will receive.

I have had the pleasure of working with Shannon for 8 years - her knowledge of the mortgage process and attention to clients is unparalleled. The Los Angeles market can be tricky with high dollar homes and unique income of the Entertainment Industry, but Shannon takes charge and leads everyone through to successful closings like clock work - cannot recommend her enough a true Rock Star in Mortgage more

Working with Shannon was a real pleasure. She was always available and got back to me promptly with any necessary information. I was able to refinance my mortgage at a rate considerably lower than another larger company quoted who I had started working with. I look forward to working with Shannon again and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a competent and decent mortgage more

As first time home buyers we had no idea what we were doing. We were pre-approved by a well known company but quickly discovered that we absolutely did not want to work with them for the actual mortgage. Shannon was recommended to us by a friend and I called on a Saturday morning. By Saturday evening we were well on our way to buying a house (we closed three days ago!). Shannon made navigating these foreign waters so easy, answering all of our newbie questions with patience and grace. Plus she got us a fantastic rate. We are so grateful for Shannon and can not recommend her enough. WE OWN A HOME!!read more

I always go back to Shannon because she is one of the best in the business! I've worked with Shannon over the years, however, she outdid herself in my last deal. She was so professional, caring and effective that my clients were comparing everyone else in the deal to Shannon. More importantly, we were ready to fund in less than two weeks. Once again, Shannon affirmed my belief in her that she always rises to the occasion. Thank you for being the best!read more
