This young trend supports future health for Real Estate. In fact, most home prices and amount financed fall into the Conventional loan limit range. Additionally, most consumers do not pay cash for their home. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) 88% of all recent buyers used a home loan to buy their home. NAR also found that 97% of recent home buyer’s under age 38 mortgaged their home purchase.

Conventional loan limits syncing with rising home values grants more home-buyers greater access to affordable Conventional home loan products.
