 As a HMC I look at loan scenario. Some of the loan scenario fit perfect in FHA rather than conventional.

I'm not sure I've ever heard that CONV qualifies easier. FHA & VA have higher back end ratios.

If your LO doesn't have a brick for a head, he should have ran them 'all' ways.

I don't sell to many hoes, but you're right about costs, and with VA and FHA appraisals the way they are lately, it's much easier to get a conventional appraisal to come in at value.

I always prefer to keep away from any funds that involve the government in any way, most of my loans are all "in house" with a local bank, much less restrictions and speedy too.

I spent no time with people wanting <20% down.  Cash is popular again thanks to Trid.

Contingiency limited to loan approval. The rest are released at the time of making offer.

If our clients call the lenders on our preferred list, I know the lender will look at all options and recommend the best program for the client. If need be, I will make suggestions as I worked in mortgage banking for 9 years prior to Real Estate. However, I trust the lenders we recommend and know they will do what is best for the client.

A good lender will always check out the options that the buyer can qualify for, and present them to the buyer.  Sometimes their priority is a low payment, but sometimes it's minimum cash down.

I'm more concerned that they get the MOST Advantageous Monthly Payment (zero or lowest possible PMI/MIP )
