On November 24, the FHFA announced that it will raise the maximum conforming loan limits (CLL) for mortgages purchased in 2021 by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from $510,400 to $548,250. In most high-cost areas, the maximum loan limit for one-unit properties will be $822,375. According to the FHFA, due to generally rising home values, “the maximum CLL will be higher in 2021 in all but 18 counties or county equivalents in the U.S.” A county-specific list of the maximum loan limits in the U.S. can be accessed here.
