Why are there home loan limits?
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) oversees Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. To conform to the guidelines allowed on Fannie and Freddie loans, the loans have a limit on the loan amount. Every year they evaluate the appreciation seen nationally and adjust their loan limits accordingly.
Beginning in 2006, during the start of the real estate crash, the single-family limit was $417,000 for a conventional loan. This stayed the same until 2016 when they finally began to increase. The increase in conventional loan limits has allowed more flexibility and loan options for borrowers who would otherwise have to use jumbo, non-conforming loans to qualify.
