Effective immediately, Gateway First Bank is accepting new locks for loans with the conforming loan limit increases for standard and high balance loans, as announced by the FHFA on 11/30/21. In most areas, the conforming loan limit for 1-unit properties has increased to $647,200 from $548,250 and the 1-unit high balance limit has increased from $822,750 to $970,800. Loan amounts do vary by property location and number of units. For a complete listing of loan limits by county please see the FHFA announcement located here.
Loans with AUS approve/ineligible results, solely due to the loan amount exceeding 2021 limits but meeting 2022 limits, are eligible for purchase by Gateway. Please note, if a DU loan has more than just loan amount for ineligible feedback, we will request DU be re-run prior to loan purchase. LPA loans must be ineligible only due to the loan amount exceeding 2021 limits but fitting within 2022 limits.
