Types of Loans

Conforming Loans

A conforming loan is a mortgage that is equal to or less than the loan limit set annually by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored agencies that purchase the bulk of U.S. residential mortgages from banks and other lenders. The current conforming loan limit for a single-family home or condominium in most areas of the country is $417,000, with higher limits allowed for designated high-priced markets.

The terms conforming and conventional are often used interchangeably. Mortgage loans that are higher than the conforming loan limit are called jumbo mortgages or nonconforming loans.

Non-Conforming Loans

Non-conforming loans are offered to borrowers who do not qualify for conforming loans. They typically have slightly higher interest rates, and may have additional upfront fees and/or insurance requirements.

Loans can be called non-conforming for several different reasons. The best-known type of non-conforming loan is the jumbo loan.

Jumbo Loans

Jumbo loans are too large to meet the guidelines of a conforming loan. For example, if you are buying a home and you need a mortgage for more than $417,000, you’ll need to acquire a jumbo loan.

Since jumbo loans do not meet the guidelines of a conforming loan, they are harder to sell on the secondary market. Since lenders are less confident in their ability to resell this type of mortgage, so they will offset this financial risk by charging the borrower a higher interest rate.
