What Is a Conventional Home Loan?

Conventional mortgages are the most common type of loan in the real estate industry. They are originated and funded by private lenders such as banks, mortgage companies, credit unions, and other financial institutions, and then are often sold to government-sponsored entities such as the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac). Conventional mortgages can be used for refinancing or new purchases, feature competitive rates, and offer terms ranging from five to 30 years.

qualify for loans with more favorable terms.
