Conventional Loans

Conventional loans are secured by Government Sponsored Entities (GSE) such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Conventional loans can be made to purchase or refinance homes with first and second mortgages on single family and up to four family homes. Conventional loans are underwritten to meet the guidelines issued by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Conventional loan programs include fixed rate loans, adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) loan products, and balloon loan programs.

Until recently, conventional loan programs were limited to a total loan amount of $417,000.00. The Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 changed Fannie Mae's charter to expand the definition of a "conforming" loan. Two sets of limits are provided for first mortgages: general conforming loan limits, and high-cost area conforming loan limits. It is important to note that the high-cost area conforming loan limits vary according to county, but the highest high-cost area conforming loan limit is currently $729,750.00.
