Conforming Loan Limits for Massachusetts for 2010

For 2010, the Federal Housing Finance Agency has set revised conforming loan limit at $417,000, the same limit it has offered for several years now. Certain counties designated as high-cost areas have received higher limits in conjunction with the economic stimulus package of 2008, extended in late 2009. These extended limits are available through December 31st, 2010.

For Massachusetts, the following counties received higher limits than the national $417,000 cap:

Barnstable County: $462,500

Bristol County: $475,000

Dukes County: $729,750

Essex County: $523,750

Middlesex County: $523,750

Nantucket: $729,750

Norflok County: $523,750

Plymouth County: $523,750

Suffolk County: $523,750

The remaining counties, Worcester, Hampden, Franklin, and Hampshire, are all capped at the national $417,000 limit. These limits define the maximum loan amount which may be purchased by regulated agencies, such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Larger loans may not be sold to the agencies. At this time, rates for those larger loans tend to be higher than loans which may be sold to the agencies.
