The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has announced that the base conforming loan limit will increase from $548,250 to $647,200 in January 2022. Due to the loan limit increase, the new high balance limit will also increase to $970,800 (150 percent of $822,375) for one-unit properties in the contiguous U.S.
Reverse mortgages will also have a national increase in maximum claim of $970,000 -- effective 1/1/2022.
