Conforming Loan limits Rise for 2008, Great News for....

President Bush Signed the Stimulus Plan

The bill will temporarily increase the size of loans that may be purchased by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, raising the current level of $417,000 to reportedly up to $729,750 in the highest cost regions of the housing markets. A change from a Jumbo Mortgage to a conforming mortgage will help you to possibly save hundreds of dollars a month on your mortgage payment. If you or someone you know has a loan that:
Has a loan balance currently between $417,000 and $730,000 at an interest rate higher than 6%.
Has a Second Loan with an interest rate higher than 6%.
Is a loan that is fixed for 3, 5, 7 or 10 years that will become an ARM anytime in the next 18 months.
Is an ARM that is scheduled to adjust anytime in the next 18 months.
Have been considering a purchase but you're not sure you could afford to or that you would qualify.
