For many years the maximum loan amount for a conforming (Fannie/Freddie) mortgage has been set at $417,000 except in counties designated at “high-cost” counties. Starting in January of 2017 that limit has finally been increased to at least $424,100 in every county in America. The limits are higher than that in high-cost counties still too. Likewise, the maximum loan amount for FHA loans in non high-cost counties has been increase nationwide from $271,050 to $275,665. The loan limit changes aren’t earth-shattering, but they will be helpful to borrowers who are getting loans right near the limits. See here for the loan limits in every county in America.
