A conventional mortgage or conventional loan is any type of home loan that is not offered or secured by a government entity. Conventional mortgages are available through private lenders, such as banks, credit unions, and mortgage companies.
However, some conventional mortgages can be guaranteed by two government-sponsored enterprises; the Federal National Mortgage Association or Fannie Mae, and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation or Freddie Mac. These mortgages are called conforming mortgages and meet the funding criteria of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, including a dollar limit set annually by the Federal Housing Finance Agency.

I can help you decide if a conventional/conforming loan is right for you.
Conventional loans are the most popular loan type followed by government-backed mortgages. These loans have diverse repayment plans; borrowers do not have to meet any special criteria to qualify and there is no up-front mortgage insurance fee.
This loan type might be right for you if you know you will not be remaining in the home for a long period of time and want a shorter-term adjustable-rate mortgage. In the initial period of the loan, you may pay ultra-low interest and can save thousands.
