Conventional Loan:

A mortgage conventional loan is a lender agreement that's not guaranteed or insured by the federal government

Although a conventional loan is not insured or guaranteed by the government, it can still follow the guidelines of government sponsored enterprises such as Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac as both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are stockholder-owned corporations and are not part of the federal government.

Conventional loans may be either "conforming" and "non-conforming". Conforming loans follow the terms and conditions set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Nonconforming loans don't meet Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac guidelines, but they are also considered conventional.

Conventional loan requirements:
