On November 30, FHFA announced that it will raise the maximum conforming loan limits (CLL) for mortgages purchased in 2022 by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from $548,250 to $647,200 (the 2021 CLL limits were covered previously by InfoBytes here). In most high-cost areas, the maximum loan limit for one-unit properties will be $970,800. According to FHFA, due to generally rising home values, “the CLLs will be higher in all but four U.S. counties or county equivalents.” A county-specific list of 2022 conforming loan limits for all counties and county-equivalent areas in the U.S. can be accessed here.
