FHA Loan Limits Looking to Decrease

By
Real Estate Agent with Paramount Real Estate Services

HUD is planning another shift in loan limits for FHA loans coming this October.  Currently they are set at $295,000 for  our Marion & Polk Counties within the Mid Willamette Valley in Oregon.  Currently FHA requires a down payment of 3.5% of the sales price leaving a potential sales price to be no more than $280,880.00 come this October.  Hopefully this will not have a huge affect on our home sales in this area.  Many of the FHA buyers in this market are purchasing homes below $200,000.  However, you will see that many move up buyers want to take advantage of the FHA backed mortgages with the minimal 3.5% down payment leaving some sellers with homes priced around the $280,000 price range and above in an ever more difficult position to find a qualified buyer.

Like most markets around the country, ours is also flooded with homes priced above $280,000 and it is a difficult task to find a buyer able to put down 20% during these economic times.  Sellers need to look ahead so they are able to position themselves correctly for the coming changes.

With falling home prices, this only makes sense that they roll back the limits as well. Welcome to Activerain and look forward to reading more from you.
