Regardless of the progress made in the housing economy (or lack thereof), FHA loan limits will return back to 2008 standards on October 1, 2011. For a complete list of loan limits for all Nevada Counties, please feel free to e-mail me or give us a call. This ruling can really have an impact on whether your loan closes or not. A high balance loan may not be eligible any longer for FHA financing, so make sure that you and your Loan Officer are on the same page.
So what does this mean to you if you are using FHA financing in Nevada?
Prior to October 1, 2011, one could purchase a home using Nevada FHA financing priced up to $403,750 in WashoeCounty. This purchase price is based on FHA’s 3.5% down payment requirement. As of today’s date, Tuesday October 4, 2011 home buyers in Washoe and Storey counties, the new max loan amount is $325,450 in order to meet the revised FHA loan limits of October 1st 2011.
There is a way around the revised FHA loan limits, but the option is costly. It simply requires the home buyer to apply more money to the down payment to stay under the max loan limits.
