New FHA Loan Limits; Home Construction Not Keeping Up

Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Commissioner Brian D. Montgomery has announced the loan limits for FHA forward mortgages in 2020. The limits are based on the conforming loan limis announced last week by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) for loans acquired by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. That basic conforming limit will be $510,400 for most of the United States, up from $484,350 in 2019. The conforming loan limits are calculated based on the annual increase in the 2019 FHFA Housing Price Index for the third quarter of the year which was 5.38 percent. Using that limit, FHA sets its own limits with a floor and a ceiling. The floor applies to those areas where 115 percent of the median home price is less than 65 percent of the base limit for 2020 that low cost limit will be $331,760
