RAISING FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC CONFORMING LOAN LIMITS C.A.R. issued the following statement in response to the Federal Housing Finance Agency's (FHFA) announcement to increase the 2018 conforming loan limits for mortgages acquired by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to $453,100 on one-unit properties and a cap of $679,650 in high-cost areas. The previous loan limits were $424,100 and $636,150, respectively.
C.A.R. applauds the FHFA for recognizing California's continuing home price increases over the last few years and raising maximum conforming loan limits," said C.A.R. President Steve White. "Increasing the existing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac conforming loan limits will provide stability and certainty to the housing market and give tens of thousands of California homebuyers a chance at homeownership."
The conforming loan limit determines the maximum size of a mortgage that government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac can buy or "guarantee." Non-conforming or "jumbo loans" typically have tighter underwriting standards and carry higher mortgage interest rates than conforming loans.
If you are thinking of buying to take advantage of the higher loan amounts available at current rates of 4% feel free to give me a call for a recommendation, or perhaps you want to refinance. I will be happy to review your financial picture and share my 40+ years of experience.

When it comes to SELLING your home "the right agent makes all the difference in the world". There is a lot more to selling a house than just putting a "For Sale" sign in the front yard.

If you provide your phone # I can set up an appointment to see your property, and will provide you with a more comprehensive analysis as well as an estimated closing cost net sheet so you can see what you will come out with at the close of escrow. Remember, there is never any obligation when I provide you with my marketing analysis to list your property with me even if I come out to see the property. I just want to provide the best information to you and would always appreciate the opportunity to work for you if you feel it will be of benefit to you.
