FHFA to Review Loan Limits Again-Update

The Federal Housing Finance Agency announced further steps today into evaluating whether to lower loan limits on loans sold or guaranteed by the GSEs ( Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac ).  Just recently, they had announced a decision to postpone a mandate to lower these limits.

The proposal once again comtemplates the reduction of the Conforming Loan Limit from            $ 417,000 in most areas to $ 400,000.  This represents a proposed reduction of approximately 4 per cent from current levels.  While this reduction might not hurt some areas, many high cost areas of the Country could be adversely affected by this change.

The FHFA once again is giving the public an opportunity to voice it's opinion.  Those interested can submit their comments directly to the FHFA.  The deadline is March 20, 1014.
