 Lending Limit Increases Make Fresno County Mortgages More Accessible Than Ever!

Affordable financing is now more accessible than ever! As of December 2017, conforming loan limits have increased throughout California, making it easier for first-time homebuyers to obtain mortgages. In Fresno County, we have seen increases in lending limits for Conventional loans, Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans and Veterans Affairs (VA) loans, all of which are mortgage options offered by De Young Mortgage!

So, what are each of these loans and which one might be right for you?

Conventional Mortgage Loans

A Conventional mortgage loan is a home loan that conforms to the loan limits set by the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) and the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), but is not guaranteed or insured by a federal government agency. If you have a strong credit score and intend to make a sizeable down payment on your home, this loan may offer a better rate, more flexibility and fewer provisions when compared to other loans!
