Pittsburgh, PA (November 29, 2017) – Howard Hanna Mortgage Services is pleased to announce that we are increasing our conforming loan limits to $453,100 beginning in January of 2018. Conforming loan limits are set by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) each year and establish the limit to which the Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC) can guarantee loans. For comparison purposes, the limit in 2017 was $424,100. The new limit for 2018 will be $453,100. The $29,000 increase is the largest single increase in many, many years. From 2006 to 2016 the limit remained steady at $417,000 before increasing slightly to $424,100 in 2017.

The higher loan limit will offer Howard Hanna Mortgage Services greater flexibility on mortgages up to $453,100. Having the FNMA/FHLMC guarantee opens a wider spectrum of possibilities for an increased number of borrowers and their mortgage financing.
