Conforming Loan Limits Will Remain the Same

It looks like the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight will not reduce the current $417,000 conforming loan limit for a single family home in 2007. They may raise it if necessary, or let it stand for 2007. If prices drop they will average that against the 2007 levels when deciding the 2008 conforming loan limit.

That's good news for housing from the financing perspective, as it will hopefully keep housing at a more affordable level with favorable interest rates for mortgages.
