Annually, the Federal Housing Finance Administration (FHFA) convenes to evaluate the real estate market's expansion over the past year. Should there be an uptick in sales prices, adjustments are made to the apex loan quantities for Conventional mortgages, ensuring these loan programs align with the evolving housing costs and aiding the average buyer in acquiring standard financing.
For 2024, the upper limit for loans has officially been increased from $726,200 to $766,550, marking a $40,350 increment, or a 5.5% surge compared to the prior year of 2023.
Despite elevated interest rates, the real estate sector, particularly in Florida, remains robust. Property values continue to climb, albeit at a decelerated pace.
The selling process has elongated slightly, with reduced competition from minor investors, a stark contrast to the frenzied market of 2021.
In "high-cost" areas like Monroe County (Florida Keys), these limits are even higher. For conventional loans in Monroe County, they range from $929,200 for a single unit to $1,786,950 for four units.
