Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) issues
increased maximum loan limits for 2017 November 23, 2016
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has issued the maximum loan limits that will apply to conventional loans to be acquired by Fannie Mae in 2017, increasing those limits for the first time since 2006. The new limits are effective for mortgage loans delivered into MBS with pool issue dates on or after January 1, 2017. Loan limits apply to the original loan amount of the mortgage loan, not to its balance at the time of purchase by Fannie Mae.
