What is a super conforming loan?

A super conforming mortgage loan is a term coined by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for mortgages in certain parts of the country that are more expensive areas to live. Fannie and Freddie have a mortgage limit of $417,000 in most parts of the country, and anything above that figure they will not buy because it is considered a jumbo loan. Because of the appreciation in home values, certain areas can now apply for loans up to $625,000 and even $729,000 because of the high cost of homes.
