Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae are clearing houses which buy loans from lenders, then block them together, then sell securities based on the performance of the loans.. these securities are sold on the open market as a "Mortgage backed security".. Ginnie Mae is for government loans.. FHA, VA, USDA.. Fannie and Freddie used to be private companies, but since the mortgage crisis, they were taken over by the federal government and fall under a GSE (government sponsored enterprise) but these are conventional loans with different underwriting guidelines, but in reference to your question, they are pretty much the same. I'm a preferred Lender with California and Arizona being my primary markets.
