Conventional Loans Houston, Texas

Conventional Loans:
Conventional loans are mortgage loans offered by non-government sponsored lenders. These loan types include:

  • Fixed Rate Loans
  • Adjustable Rate Loans (ARMs)
  • Combination (Hybrid) Loans
  • Balloon Mortgages and Pledge Asset Loans
  • Jumbo / Construction Loans
  • Reverse Mortgage


Conventional loans may be conforming and non conforming and have terms and conditions that follow the guidelines set forth by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. These two stockholder-owned corporations purchase mortgage loans complying with the guidelines from mortgage lending institutions, packages the mortgages into securities and sell the securities to investors. By doing so, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, like Ginnie Mae, provide a continuous flow of affordable funds for home financing that results in the availability of mortgage credit for Americans. The main advantage of a conventional loan is that the borrower can avoid paying the upfront mortgage insurance and possibly the monthly mortgage insurance of an FHA loan.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac guidelines establish the maximum loan amount, borrower credit and income requirements, down payment, and suitable properties. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announces new loan limits every year.  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.
