Mortgage Lending is tightening it's purse strings again...

TEMPORARY CONFORMING LOAN LIMITS EXPIRE SEPTEMBER 30TH , 2011

Conforming Loan Limits were originally raised in February 2008 as part of the economic stimulus package. The Federal Housing Finance Agency is expected to reduce conforming loan limits on mortgages guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac this October. The limits will fall from $729,750 to $625,500.

This will make mortgages more expensive and harder to get for buyers. (i.e., Higher down payment and interest rates) We are seeing that the higher end market is picking up as a result of this news.

Rates over the last week have also been at an all time low since early December.

A big thank you to Ayata Colbert, a lender here in Oakland who made sure to pass this news on to her network of Realtors so they could reach out to their clients. Thanks Ayata!

Do you want to contact Ayata direct to talk about this and how it effects your plans?
