Today Fannie Mae published its loan limits for 2011 for all conventional mortgage loans. As noted in the announcement, high-cost area loan limits for 2011 will be different for mortgage loans originated on or before September 30, 2011 and mortgage loans originated after September 30, 2011. High-cost area limits are established for each county (or equivalent) and are published on www.eFannieMae.com and on FHFA's website.
We have also updated our CJ and CK MBS pool prefix definitions (PDF) to reflect that these limits will be applicable for loans originated in 2011.
Investors may contact our Fixed-Income Securities Helpline at 1-888-BOND HLP (1-888-266-3457) if they have additional questions.
