The U.S. government supports the mortgage industry by providing mortgage lenders with a source of funding. Two entities do this primarily: Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Fannie and Freddie are chartered to support only a certain segment of the population-low- and middle-class households. To ensure that these households receive the benefit of Fannie and Freddie's activities, the government maintains a set of criteria defining the mortgages it will support. These are called conforming mortgages. These mortgages carry lower interest rates than non-conforming mortgages. The qualification criteria include maximum borrower debt-to-income ratio, maximum loan-to-value, and maximum loan amount, among other things.
If you have sufficient equity and income, you can take out a second mortgage to convert your home equity into cash. There are two forms of second mortgages-a fixed-rate loan or an adjustable-rate line of credit. Common uses for home equity loans include home improvement projects and business start-up costs. The home equity line of credit (HELOC) can be used to cover timing differences between household bills and household income. Lenders set your maximum approved loan limit by applying a percentage of the value of your home, less the balance on your first mortgage. The percentage used varies by lender and by economic conditions, but generally ranges from 75 percent to 125 percent.
