Chapman Lending Team at HomeBridge Financial

The Federal Housing Finance Agency announced Tuesday that it is raising the conforming loan limits for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to more than $510,000.

In most of the U.S., the 2020 maximum conforming loan limit will be raised to $510,400, up from 2019’s level to $484,350.

The San Diego limit is increasing to $701,500 and Orange County limit to $765,600.  With VA limits likely to follow suit, this will increase the buying and refinance power of homebuyers in high-cost areas.

ADDITIONALLY, for VA home buyers with no current VA loan counted against their entitlement, the VA loan zero down payment cap is being eliminated on any closing after Jan 1st, 2020.  (See Below)
