Conventional Loans

Conventional loans are mortgage loans offered by non-government sponsored lenders. A conventional, or conforming, mortgage adheres to the guidelines set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It may have either a fixed or adjustable rate. Sabrina Nelke – Premier Mortgage Resources offers conventional mortgages in Idaho and Washington.
