The Federal Housing Financing Agency has recently announced that the new conforming loan limit for 2022 is $647,200 for most areas for single-unit properties! This is an 18% increase from last years $548,000 loan limit. This will be the sixth year that the Federal Financing Agency increased the conforming loan limit.
Borrowers looking to purchase a house in the coming year can now borrow almost $650k from a lender, making conventional loans more accessible.
This also means that homeowners whose loans were once considered “JUMBO,” or above the previous conforming loan limit, can now refinance their mortgage to obtain a lower rate and possibly even qualify to eliminate their mortgage insurance.
“The new conforming loan limit that was announced recently is encouraging news to consumers that were having to deal with the difficulty of jumbo loan guidelines.” Says FBC Mortgage regional manager Jay Zerquera. “Jumbo loan guidelines, can at times, have overlays that cause consumers difficulties in securing financing for their new homes. Now that consumers have more purchasing power and various financial options with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac backing their mortgage, the residential housing market should continue to see steady growth for years to come.”
FBC Mortgage programs will take the new limit into effect starting 2022.
