Conforming vs NonConforming Mortgage

By: Tamara Schmitt

There are two general categories into which mortgages fall- conforming and non- conforming. Both are viable loan programs, depending on the borrower's needs and qualifications.

Conforming mortgages derive thier name because they "conform" to Fannie Mae (FNMA) or Freedie Mac (FHLMC) standards. Fannie Mae (FNMA) is a private, shareholder-owned company that works to make sure money is available for home loans. FNMA stands for Federal National Mortgage Association. Fannie Mae does not lean money directly to home buyers. Instead, they work with lenders to make sure they don't run out of mortgage funds, so more people can achieve their goal of homeownership.

Freddie Mac (FHLMC) is a stockholder-owned corporation chartered Congress in 1970 to keep money flowing to mortgage lenders in support of homeownership. FHLMC stands for Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation. Both have guidelines that must be met to obtain funding.

Non-conforming mortgage loans are entirely different. You may qualify for a mortgage loan through the non-conforming world even if you do not conform to the above standards. With nonconforming loans, each lender sets their own criteria to determine eligibility. Lenders have different "niches" they try to serve. Some may be to provide riskier loans at higher interest rates for poor credit applicants. Others may be to offer access to more cash for those with better credit. Some specialize in providing loans to self employed borrowers. In any case, each lender makes their makes their own rules and they are not bound by any federal charter. This gives extreme flexibility in the loan products they are allowed to offer.

Apart from structural differences between the companies offering each type of loan, there are major differences in the features and benefits of the two loan categories as the chart below highlights.
