Help for US homeowners came this past week in the form of Increased Loan limits for Fannie Mae (FNMA), Freddie Mac (FHLMC), and Ginnie Mae (Government loans such as FHA, VA, & FHA Secure). This week the United States Congress, the US Senate and our President, G.W. Bush all came to an agreement on an economic stimulus bill that includes a very important set of provisions for Homeowners. It increases the loan limits for the above entities from a cap of $417,000 for Fannie & Freddie and $362K for FHA to as much as $729,750 in high cost areas such as Coastal California, parts of Florida, New York, and select markets. This is likely to help many thousands of homeowners refinance and purchase homes with affordable, secure financing for their homes during the next year. The increases are temporary (until December 31, 2008) for some of the programs, so those looking to refinance or purchase a home should contact us very soon to get started. This will not only result in lower rates for many loans formerly considered "Jumbo", but will help many folks get qualified as these loan programs allow financing up to 97% of a homes appraised value without large penalties or rate increases.
This is welcome relief for thousands of Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) holders who are worried about interest rate resets and increased payments that can now lock into a more secure 30 year fixed rate mortgage at competitive rates.
