Dollar-Clock-300x225Federal Housing Administration (FHA) recently announced 2013 maximum loan limits for California, Oregon and Washington FHA mortgages. While the “floor” and maximum high-cost limit remained the same nationally, for some counties the loan limits changed.

Every county will at least have the “floor” as their loan limit, also called FHA’s minimum loan amount limit per below. One-unit applies to Single family residence (SFR), Condominiums and Townhomes.
