Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) increases loan limits for 2020

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has set the 2020 loan limits for conventional loans acquired by Fannie Mae. The new limits are effective for whole loans and mortgage loans delivered into MBS with pool issue dates on or after January 1, 2020. Loan limits apply to the original loan amount of the mortgage loan, not to its balance at the time of purchase by Fannie Mae.

The high-cost area loan limits are established for each county (or equivalent) and are published on Fannie Mae’s website and on FHFA’s website.

Please see Fannie Mae Lender Letter LL-2019-09 for more information.
