2022 FNMA Conforming Loan Limits

By: Highlands Residential Mortgage

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has just increased the amount of money that can be borrowed through a standard home loan to more than $647K. In some areas, the limit is even higher. The new limits will take effect in 2022.

This is great news for buyers and owners alike.

  • Buyers may be able to borrow more money through a conventional, typically lower-rate loan.
  • Owners may be able to refinance their “jumbo” loan to a lower rate conforming loan and possibly drop mortgage insurance, too.
  • Combining (or avoiding) smaller 1st and 2nd mortgages may now be an option.
  • The increase reaffirms the health of the housing market and your decision to invest in a home.

Here are the specifics about the change:

  • The standard loan limit, also known as the conforming loan limit, rose by 18% to a maximum of $647,200 in most areas.
  • The percentage increase is equal to the national appreciation average over the last year.
  • This is the 6th year in a row that the FHFA has raised the limit, after a decade of no increases. The limit has risen more than $230K over six years.
