Temporary Loan limits are set to expire September 30th, and roll to the permanent limits as follows:
Nevada County currently $562,500, will be $477,250 after October 1.
Placer/El Dorado Counties currently $580,000, will be $474,950 after October 1.
SF/Marin/greater Bay Area currently $729,750, will be $625,500 after October 1.
It will take an act of Congress (literally) to extend the loan limits. They have done it for the past 2 years, but always wait until the last second to do so. Opinions on whether or not it will be extended are running 60/40 against it at the moment.
All loans under the existing limits MUST be approved prior to September 30 to close at the higher amounts.
