  • 2022 Conforming Mortgage Loan Limits Increase 18%

    January 17, 2022 | Blog | Joe Metzler
  • The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), who oversee both Fannie Mae ™ and Freddie Mac ™ has officially announced the new conforming mortgage loan limits for 2022. Homebuyers will now be able to get a conventional mortgage to purchase a one-unit home for up to $647,200 in the states we lend of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota, and South Dakota! Some higher cost states, like California, will have higher limits, as will duplex, tri-plex, and 4-unit properties. 2022 conforming loan limits

    This is an increase of $98,950 from $548,250 in 2021, making this the largest-ever annual increase for loans eligible to be purchased by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

    What Does This Mean?

    Typically, a mortgage loan OVER this size would require a jumbo mortgage product. Jumbo loans involve more strict credit requirements as well as bigger down payments, and have different interest rates. With this increase in loan limits, more borrowers can take advantage of the benefits of a conventional home loan. Some of these benefits include:

    • Low down payment options
    • Less strict credit score requirements
    • Flexibility to choose between a fixed-rate or adjustable-rate mortgage
    • The opportunity to avoid mortgage insurance by putting down 20%
