The conventional home loan limits for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac backed conventional mortgages has been increased from $424,100 in 2017, to $453,100 for all new conventional home loans in 2018.
That also means that for VA loans, the base loan limit is now also $453,100 to qualify for a home loan with a 0% down payment.
This is the second year in a row that conventional loan limits have increased, after a number of years without an increase and is positive for the housing and mortgage market, as it continues to show a reaction to increased housing prices in recent years.
This move will continue to allow for more home buyers to use a conventional or VA loan, for a new home purchase, without having to look into alternative programs, such as jumbo financing.
As always everyone’s individual situation is unique and it is always best to speak with a licensed lender, such as Strategic Mortgage and explore all available home loan options, for your specific situation.
