A non-conforming loan is a home loan that does not conform to the underwriting guidelines set forth by the government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae (Federal National Mortgage Association) and Freddie Mac (Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation).
These types of loans are typically offered to borrowers who do not qualify for conforming loans. While its good to have this type of home loan as an option, the downside is non-conforming mortgages typically have higher interest rates and may carry some additional fees and even some additional insurance requirements. In other words, they are typically more costly.
One of the best known types of non-conforming loans is a Jumbo Mortgage.
In order to qualify for a Jumbo Loan, a homebuyer’s mortgage and property must meet certain specifications. Homebuyers should also be very aware of the underwriting requirements of Jumbo loans, which can vary by lender.
