Conforming Loan Level Increases to $625,000
With a bustling real estate market, the Federal Housing Finance Agency has once again increased Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s loan limits, by offering conforming loans up to $625,000 for a single-family home in the Central Valley. What does this mean? This new limit means some qualifying borrowers may be able to qualify for conventional pricing with lower interest rates rather than relying on a jumbo mortgage, which typically have more stringent criteria. Bottom line, the increase to the maximum conforming loan amount gives purchasers and refinance borrowers expanded access to mortgage credit at lower rates.
In terms of raw dollars, this is the biggest leap in the conforming loan limit history, bumping it by more than $75,000 – an almost 14% increase over the previous $548,250 limit. For high-cost areas where single-family home prices tend to be above average, the limit will expand to $822,375.
