The New conforming loan limit is $625,500 and it is permanent.

I have read many blogs where the writer states that the new loan limit is temporary but  an article from The California Association of Realtors (C.A.R.)  says otherwise.  I would prefer to believe them (the C.A.R.*) rather than any blog written by a Realtor.  Ok, correct me if I am wrong.  If you would like read the article yourself let me know and I'll send you the link.

Here is what they the have to say:

 "The bill permanently increases the conforming loan limit to $625,500. C.A.R. has long advocated for higher conforming loan limits. In February, the Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 was signed, temporarily raising the conforming loan limit in high-cost areas to $729,750 from $417,000 until December 31, 2008."  (I think the last part of this is what confuses people.......they temporary increased to $729,750 but permanently increased to $625,500, but you can correct me if I am wrong!) 

The article went on to say:

 "Although we would have liked Congress to make permanent the current $729,750 loan limit, C.A.R. is pleased with the new permanent loan limit of $625,500"

Please feel free to leave your thoughts on this.  If you need a Realtor that takes her job seriously and is always in pursuit of the truth, please call me at 323-357-9300 or 562-884-6196.
