Do FHA Lending Limits Ever Change?

FHA Common Question #9

There has been a steady increase in the amount of FHA insured home loan money available to borrowers approved for loans on single-family home mortgages. This increase in availability means more borrowing power for those applying for FHA home loans, and lets more people than ever have the chance to own a home.

With only a 3.5% down payment and a higher single-family home mortgage limit, now may be the best time for you to apply for an FHA home loan. Take a good look at your finances before you proceed; your monthly housing costs should not take up more than 31% of your gross monthly income.

Some people make the mistake of calculating their housing budget using net income, which won't help you when it comes time to apply for an FHA loan.
