What is a Conventional Mortgage Loan?

By definition, a Conventional Mortgage Loan is any mortgage that is not guaranteed or insured by the federal government. Typically a conventional mortgage is a home loan that conforms to the standards set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Home loans like a conventional mortgage can be sold on the secondary market as a mortgage backed security (MBS) because they are in the same format as other mortgages. Non-conforming loans are loans that do not meet the standards set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and are usually held as a portfolio loan and not resold.
