Quick primer on new California FHA loan limits

The mortgage limits set by HUD for FHA loans (Federal Housing Administration) for California counties were raised in March. The new limits are set relative to the median price of homes in each county. The bad news: the new limits will only be effective until the end of 2008.
San Diego’s limit has been raised to $697,500 from just over $362,000, while Orange County and Los Angeles county are both at the max of $729,750 now. This change comes as part of the effort to support the origination of larger mortgages, which should lead to lower interest rates. Many Jumbo loan holders or home buyers have been hesitant to finance given the high rates that Jumbo loans have experienced the past few months.

  1. This is a great post for anyone that needs help with finding legal advice. I found a malpractice attorney in the Los Angeles area that helped me get to the bottom of my civil suit.
