The “floor” mortgage limit, which is the FHA national low-cost area mortgage limit, has increased from $275,665 to $294,515 for one-unit properties.  That means someone can put just 3.5% down on a sales price up to $305,196.  The FHA national low-cost area mortgage limits for 1-4-unit properties are:

  • One-unit: $294,515
  • Two-unit: $377,075

Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington DC, New York), has increased from $636,150 up to $679,650 for one-unit properties.  That means someone can put just 3.5% down on a sales price up to $704,300.  The FHA national high-cost area mortgage limits for 1-4-unit properties are:

  • One-unit: $679,650
  • Two-unit: $870,225
