New: Conforming Loan Limits Were Increased for 2024
In November 2023, officials from the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced they would be increasing conforming loan limits in 2024 for nearly all counties across the U.S.
They made this adjustment to keep pace with rising home values nationwide. We have since updated our website to bring you the latest and most accurate information.
How Do These Limits Affect Home Buyers, Borrowers?
Loan limits vary by county, and they are updated every year to keep up with home-price increases. Sometimes they are simply carried over from one year to the next, without any changes. Other times, county loan limits are increased in response to rapidly rising home prices.
If you are in the market for a mortgage loan, you should research the limits for the county in which you reside (or where you plan to buy a home). You’ll find all counties of the U.S. listed within the FHA and conforming pages on our website.
It’s possible to secure mortgage financing above the 2024 loan limits. This is referred to as a jumbo mortgage loan. Jumbo mortgage products exceed the size restrictions set by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, and therefore cannot be sold to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.
Lenders typically require larger down payments and higher income levels for borrowers seeking a jumbo loan, and often assign higher interest rates as well. Many borrowers are better off staying within the conforming loan size to avoid these stricter criteria.
