Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s 2018 loan limits may put more buying power in your clients’ hands! The base loan limits increased by 6.8%, setting the new limit at $453,100 in most parts of the country, with up to a maximum of $679,650 in high-cost areas. In many of the counties where we build, that means a change of $29,000, $43,500 or even $74,750!
Keep in mind that some counties—such as Anne Arundel and Baltimore in Maryland, Salt Lake and Tooele in Utah, and Prince George in Virginia—did not see a limit increase for 2018. For a full list of loan limits by county, visit the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s website.
