I am so excited that loan limits will be increasing in 2019! The conforming loan limit will be $484,350 and high balance loan limit for the highest-cost areas will be $726,525. Anything greater than this amount is considered Jumbo. This is extremely helpful because non-Jumbo interest rates tend to be lower, and qualifying rules and reserve requirements are a little more lax. With housing prices being as high as they are, this will help some homeowners and buyers take advantage of lower-rate opportunities.
