Refinancing? Current loan limits expire this week...

Current loan limits expire this week (today on Friday).

Current conforming loan limits are scheduled to expire Friday, Sept. 30. The maximum FHA, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac conforming loan limit will decline to $625,500 beginning Oct. 1, 2011, from the current $729,750 limit, though the majority of counties will fall far below the $625,500 maximum.

The conforming loan limit determines the maximum size of a mortgage that FHA, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) can buy or guarantee. Non-conforming or jumbo loans typically carry a higher mortgage interest rate than a conforming loan and require a higher down payment, increasing the monthly payment and negatively impacting housing affordability for California home buyers.

An estimated 30,000 people will be impacted in California by this new limit.
If you are thinking of refinancing, or a purchase, I can certainly help you choose a reliable, professional lender.
