2020 Conforming Loan Limits Increase to Keep Pace With the Increase in Dane County Home Values
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) recently announced new and improved 2020 loan limits for Conforming and High balance mortgages.
The maximum Conforming Loan Limit for 2020 for a majority of our country will be $510,400 (for one-Unit properties). This is an increase of 5.38% from $484,350 recorded in 2019.
For some context into what a Conforming Loan Limit is, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are restricted by law to purchasing single-family mortgages with origination balances below a specific amount, known as the “Conforming Loan Limit.”. It is this limit that will be affected by the change.
As a result of generally rising home values, the increase in the baseline loan limit, and the increase in the ceiling loan limit, the maximum Conforming Loan Limit will be higher in 2020 in all but 43 counties or county-equivalents in the U.S. This is the fourth consecutive year that the FHFA has raised Conforming Loan Limits.
