A conforming loan is a mortgage loan that conforms to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac guidelines. In 2017, the conforming loan limit is set at $424,100 for single family homes. The conforming high balance loan limits vary by county with a maximum loan amount of $636,150 for single family homes. In addition to the loan limits for conforming loans, other guidelines include financing up to 97% of the sales price of a home and higher debt to income ratios. Any loan that does not meet Fannie Mae’s or Freddie Mac’s loan limits or guidelines is considered a non-conforming loan.
