Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announced this week that conventional mortgage loan limits will be increasing for the 4th year in a row in 2020. 

Previously, a home buyer wanting to get a conventional mortgage loan had a loan limit of $484,350. With the new guidelines taking effect in 2020, borrowers will now be able to get a conventional mortgage loan for up to $510,400. 

So what does this mean? 

Borrowers will now have more home purchasing power, while getting the often lower mortgage interest rates and benefits of a conventional loan. For example, under the new loan limits a home buyer with a budget of up to $638,000 and a 20% down payment, would now qualify for the maximum conventional mortgage loan limit of $510,400 in 2020.
