A conventional loan is any mortgage which is not guaranteed or insured by the federal government. Conventional loans were the first traditional mortgage loans made by local lenders. The loans were held in the lender’s investment portfolio until they were either paid in full or foreclosed upon. Although it enabled the borrower to build a business relationship with the lender, this practice was generally not in the lender’s best financial interest. When rates rose, lenders found themselves in the position of receiving below-market interest on their loans, in addition to not being able to recycle the funds to lend to other borrowers.

MJW Financial helped us remortgage our house for a lower interest rate. I chose MJW because they had an A rating which they definitely lived up to. First of all, they were kind and respectful, next they were always “Johnny on the spot” getting the process started right away, keeping the paper process going and always being there with an answer whenever I had a question. They were always available and approachable for questions, never made me feel bad for asking questions. I really was glad I went to them and if I had it to do over again, I would make the same choice. I totally recommend them. I give them an A+ rating.
