Higher loan limits have just been announced for 2018.  This is great news for anyone looking to purchase a home in the coming year.  It is not yet confirmed that FHA and VA will increase accordingly, but most likely they will.  If you are currently in escrow and/or closing after Jan 1st 2018, you may be able to restructure your loan.  Since some buyers may benefit from the higher limit, it is important to talk with your Loan Officer.

Here are the numbers based on the most popular counties in Southern California:

Riverside, San Bernardino and Imperial Counties: $453,100

San Diego County: $649,750

Ventura County: $672,750

Orange and Los Angeles Counties: $679,850
