All You Need to Know About Fannie Mae Mortgage Loans

Fannie Mae is a shareholder-owned company and the largest supplier of home mortgage funds. The company guarantees mortgages that comply with its funding guidelines. The enterprise does not issue loans, but buys mortgages on the secondary market and sells them as mortgage-backed securities to investors on the open market. This increases mortgage liquidity, which enables mortgage lenders to write additional loans. As a government sponsored enterprise, Fannie Mae was chartered by Congress to maintain the strength of the U.S housing and mortgage industry. But Fannie Mae is not the only government sponsored enterprise created to help maintain the flow of funds available to mortgage lenders. Freddie Mac also purchases home loans on the secondary market.
