FHA, VA, and Conventional mortgage loan limits September / October 2011

By
Mortgage and Lending with First Place Bank Maryland, Virginia, District of Columbia

September 30th and October 1st are important in our industry as several government loan limits are set to change:

  • Conventional Fannie Mae loan limits will be changing,
  • FHA mortgage loan limits will be changing, and
  • VA loan limits will not be changing yet, however, VA funding fees will be changing

 

Fannie Mae loan limits: https://www.efanniemae.com/sf/refmaterials/loanlimits/xls/loanlimref.xls

 

Use the above referenced table to check the Fannie Mae loan limits.  Additionally, if your home purchase is affected by the loan limits going down utilize our bank’s second trust mortgage to allow you to purchase your home above the loan limits with as little as 10% down.  See my 80/10/10 second mortgage blog post and an article in the Wall Street Journal referencing our bank

The FHA loan limits will also generally follow the change in the Fannie loan limits, but you can search by state via the link above.

 

VA:

The maximum guaranty for VA guaranteed loans closed October 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011 will remain unchanged. The Veterans’ Benefits Improvement Act of 2008 provided a temporary increase in VA loan limits for loans closed January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2011. Because of this legislation, VA loan limits will remain the same for the remainder of the calendar year. Please note that VA does not have a maximum loan amount. Loan limit refers to the maximum loan a lender could make and still receive a 25% guaranty from VA, assuming the veteran has full entitlement.
