Higher Loan Limits for 2015

By
Mortgage and Lending with The Mortgage Experts at America's Mortgage, a Division of Cherry Creek Mortgage Co. NMLS #241555

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have announced that the maximum loan amounts in 46 counties across the country are being increased for 2015.  Eleven of those counties are in Colorado, and include all of the Metro-Denver counties.

 

What does this mean?  First, it means what many people have long suspected: housing prices in the Denver area are going up. It also means that you can now get a loan for more than $417,000, and it doesn't have to be a jumbo loan.

 

Here are the Colorado counties that went up, and the new maximum loan amounts:

 

For Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Clear Creek, Denver, Douglas, Elbert, Gilpin, Jefferson, and Park Counties, the new limit is $424,350.  The new limit for Boulder County is $456,550.

 

Any loan for more than these limits is considered a jumbo loan, and has tougher underwriting guidelines, higher credit score requirements, and higher down payment requirements.

 

Did you know that we don't have any underwriting overlays on the loans we sell?  That means we have no additional underwriting guidelines like most lenders have.  Pretty nice!

One of these days, Fannie/Freddie will catch up with real estate values in different areas. 

Or should I say, WILL THEY???

That is good news. I'll have to see if our county is there, too.  The average house price here is $650,000...and median is higher.

This is good news.  We rely heavily on our jumbo-conforming limits here in CA.  In most of the San Francisco Bay Area, our jumbo-conforming limit is $625,500, and even at that level it is often inadequate for borrowers' needs.

That appears to give buyers a little more leeway by bumping up that maximum amount.

Chris Thomas - usually, our loan limits are higher, however, I'll check with my lender to confirm the new numbers.

Hopefully this will help a bunch of additional people afford a home that they otherwise could not buy

Joan,

Here is the link (also works for FHA loan limits).  Make sure you have the correct year chosen.
