FHA poised to lower mortgage limits in Colorado

Posted on July 22, 2011 by Ray Williams (NMLS #216267).

You may have heard the buzz. Right now unless congress takes action we will see lower FHA loan limits in Colorado . This will affect about 5% of prospective homebuyers in Colorado once that happens. It is set to go into effect October 1, 2011 unless it is stopped.

It won’t effect you if you do an FHA streamline on a mortgage you took out prior to the change, even if your balance remains above the loan limits in effect at that time. And it won’t effect you if you are doing a reverse mortgage or Home Equity Conversion Mortgage either (these two are established under a different legal authority).

Here are the proposed changes in Colorado by county:
