What are the 2012 Loan Limits?
Curious about how big of a loan you can get to buy a home in San Francisco? The above chart will walk you through what your options are for single family homes, condos, and 2 – 4 unit buildings. Please note that the purchase of a condo home falls under the “one unit” category, regardless of the number of condo homes in the development.
As you can see for a single family home or condo, a conforming Fannie loan is $417,000 and you can go as large as a $729,750 loan through FHA. Regardless of the program (Fannie, Fannie Jumbo, or FHA) you can expect to pay for private mortgage insurance if you have less than 20% down.
Interested in a 2 – 4 unit building? Depending on the building size, you can expect to qualify for a loan of between $533,850 to $1,403,400. If you don’t have 20% down, FHA loans or portfolio lenders (not pictured) are pretty much your only financing options at the moment.
