The median sales price of previously owned single-family homes, went from $410,000 in October to $420,000 in November; which is up 2.4% from October and up 21.7% from the prior year.

U.S. mortgage rates remain historically low but are up from a year ago. The average rate on a 30-year home loan in October was 3.07%, up from 2.83% during the same month last year, mortgage-finance giant Freddie Mac reported.

The Federal Housing Agency (FHA) has just raised its loan limit by 18% to a maximum amount of $420,680 in most areas. In certain high-cost areas, it’s $970,800. Limits will take effect in 2022. **Max purchase price with 3.5% down is $436,000

This means your buyers can take advantage of FHA program benefits, including:

  • Low down payment options
  • Lower total cash-to-close requirements with gift or seller contributions
  • Ability to combine purchase and rehab financing
  • In some high-cost areas, higher loan limits than conventional mortgage

**CONVENTIONAL Mortgage loan limits are increasing AGAIN to $647,200 in 2022**
**Max purchase price with 5% down is $681,300
**Max purchase price with 3% down is $667,250
