The 2019 VA Home Loan County Limits have been released.

2019 VA Loan Limits Announced

For 2019, the ZERO down payment limit will increase to $484,350 for most counties. For some “high-cost” counties (table below) such as San Diego, the limit has increased from $649,750 to $690,000.  A buyer can go above the limits by putting down 25% of the amount over the limit.  For instance, in San Diego, one could put down $25,000 for a VA purchase of $790,000.

The 2019 VA loan limit increased to $484,350 from $453,100 except in 199 high cost counties where they are higher. This represents a 6.9% increase this year. For comparison there are 3,234 counties and county equivalents. The maximum conforming VA loan limits for mortgages acquired by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are determined by the The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA).

21 counties dropped off the high cost county limits (Alpine, CA, Hood River, OR, San Juan, WA, 3 North Carolina Counties and  15 Virginia counties). No counties were added to the list and 47 counties saw no change. All high cost counties in Massachusetts and New Hampshire saw the greatest increase at over 14%.

2019 VA Loan limits apply to all loans closed January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019.

All 2019 “High Cost” County Limits NATIONWIDE are listed below.
