An Increase to the Conforming Loan Limit for 2023

December 8, 2022

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has announced an increase to the conforming loan limits for 2023. The new loan limit for a one-unit property will now be $726,200, up from $647,200 in 2022.

In high balance counties the loan limit may even be higher. For example, Pierce, King, and Snohomish county limits are up to $977,500. What does this mean exactly? Loan Officer, Justin Nimick gives us insight. “It means more buying power! Conforming loans (up to $726,200) typically have more favorable rates vs. high balance or super conforming ($726,201-$977,500). Jumbo loans can actually carry a lower rate, but often have more strict requirements.”

For borrowers who were looking to purchase a home that previously exceeded the loan limit, this increase may be the opportunity they’ve been waiting for. Curious about your specific scenario? Schedule an appointment today to learn more about how this news may impact you.
