Alaska Conforming Mortgage Rates and Refinance Rates
Conforming home mortgage rates in Alaska are the most popular type of mortgages rates you can find advertised for home buyers in Alaska. Conforming mortgages, also known as conventional mortgages, are mortgages that meet certain criteria set out by Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA). There is a loan limit set for each county in the United States. Higher mortgage loan limits are set for high housing cost areas. Alaska mortgages that 'conform' to the standards set out by the Federal Housing Finance Agency can be purchased by government sponsored entities (GSE) like Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. This process guarantees Alaska banks, mortgage companies and credit unions are able to resell home mortgage loans that they make. This process also makes Alaska conforming mortgage rates and refi rates lower than Alaska jumbo mortgage rates and jumbo refinance rates because the GSE's can’t purchase jumbo mortgages that are made by Alaska home finance companies, credit unions and banks.
