Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac have new loan limits for 2009, as released today. The standard conventional loan limit remains at $417K accross the USA. High Cost Areas have new limits based on the new formula in the 2008 housing bill passed in July.

We expect to see some updates to the current Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac guidelines for loans that exceed the standard limit of $417K which will keep these larger sized loans affordable & attainable. We will keep you posted as we hear updates.
