Good news for Buyers planning to get their mountain dream homes. The conforming loan limits for the year 2018 has increased!

In many parts of USA, the standard conventional loan limit has gone up to $463,450. This is otherwise also known as the Conforming Loan Limit. Based on the Permanent High Cost Loan Limit approved through Congress’ HERA bill several years ago, high-cost areas have higher loan limits.

The maximum conforming loan for the highest cost areas is now $679.650 for the year 2018. This applies for both Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac). Other terms for these loans are Conforming High Balance, Conforming Jumbo, and Super Conforming Loans.

For the counties where I help clients to buy or sell real estate, here is the table that shows their specific conforming loan limit depending on the unit count.

Please take note:

“Unit 1” - refers to a single-family home

“Unit 2” - refers to a duplex-style home with two separate residents, etc.

and so on and so forth for the next units…
