In the past decade, the loan limit has gone up by $93,400, reflecting higher home prices.  2016 marked the first loan limit increase in seven years, and since the limit has gone up each year.  Increasing loan limits is a move to make buying a home more affordable. 

Even with the recent increase in loan limits, most mortgage professionals do not suggest taking out the maximum loan amount for which you are approved.  Don’t stress your credit limit.  If you have any questions about the loan limits in your area, please let me know.
