FHA has published the latest loan limits for 2018. The FHA’s floor is currently set at 65% of the national conforming mortgage limit, which recently increased from $424,100 to $453,100 for 2018.
As a result, this increases the FHA limit $275,665 to $294,515 in most counties nationwide. The FHA high-cost limits 150% of the conforming mortgage limit, which is now to $679,650. High-cost locations like California, Florida, Virginia, Colorado, New York, etc, are those where 115% of the median home price is greater than the floor ($294,515) but less than the ceiling ($679,650). In these areas, the limit equals 115% of the median home price.
A few things to remember:
- All of the base FHA mortgage limits apply to standard 1 unit properties, 2-4 unit properties will be higher.
- The new loan limits will apply to all loans assigned FHA case numbers on or after Jan. 1, 2018.
- The limits apply to both FHA purchase and refinance transactions.
