Conventional loans may be conforming and non-conforming. Conforming loans have terms and conditions that follow the guidelines set forth by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and provide a continuous flow of affordable funds for home financing for Americans.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announce new loan limits every year.

The terms, adjustment schedule and index that the loan is based upon vary by loan program. To protect the borrower, "caps" are put into place to limit the amount of payment adjustment.
