2019 FHA Loan Limits in Texas

The Texas real estate market enjoyed a boom during the past several years, with home prices rising consistently from 2012 through 2018. Growth slowed somewhat in 2018, however, which could be good news for homebuyers looking to purchase properties in the Lone Star State this year.

The median home price statewide is $231,660, though prices are substantially above that in major metropolitan areas. Homebuyers in Austin, for instance, will find a median sale price of $304,900. But not all metros exceed the state median — the median price in San Antonio is well under the state’s at $221,500.

The vast majority of Texans live in urban areas. Just over 3 million residents live in rural areas, while the remaining 25.2 million opt to live in the state’s metropolitan regions, according to 2017 data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Texas’s urban areas are currently growing by 1.7% each year. At that rate, the urban population will double within 40 years, which could significantly affect housing prices.

If you’re considering buying in either a rapidly growing Texas metro area or in a rural part of the state, you may be considering a mortgage backed by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). An FHA loan could help you get into your new home that much faster, as the credit and down payment requirements are lower than you’ll find with conventional loans.

Texas had one of the highest rates of FHA loans granted in the country in 2018, making up 8.61% of total FHA-endorsed mortgages. Only California and Florida posted higher percentages, at 9.13% and 8.68%, respectively.

The amount you can borrow with an FHA loan in Texas will depend where you choose to move. The FHA annually sets new loan limits based on area housing prices. In Texas, loan limits for single-family homes vary from $314,827 to $395,600, depending on the county in which you choose to buy.

How are FHA loan limits set?

The FHA sets a range of loan limits each year based on the housing market. For 2019, loan limits for single-family properties range from $314,827 at the low end to $726,525 for homes in high-cost areas. Loan limits can vary across the state, as is the case in Texas.

For instance, FHA loans in Bowie County, which is in the Texarkana metropolitan area, are capped at $314,827. But Collin County, part of the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metropolitan area, has an FHA loan limit of $395,600. The difference is due to their median home-sale prices. Bowie County’s median sale price is $139,000, while Collin County’s is $344,000. To find out the loan limits for single- and multi-family properties in your county, see the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) online FHA Mortgage Limits search tool.

2019 FHA Loan Limits in Louisiana

Editorial Note: The content of this article is based on the author’s opinions and recommendations alone. It has not been previewed, commissioned or otherwise endorsed by any of our network partners.

If you’re planning to buy a home in Louisiana, there are a lot of things to consider. Besides choosing your perfect dream home, you’ll need to think about financing. If you don’t qualify for a conventional mortgage, consider applying for a loan insured by the Federal Housing Administration, or FHA.FHA loans can be made to borrowers with credit scores of 580 or above, with down payments as low as 3.5%. Even if your score falls below 580, you may still qualify for an FHA loan, but you will have to put down at least 10%.

FHA loans are attractive to a growing number of Louisianians. Borrowers in the state comprised 1.33% of FHA loans made in the United States in 2018. That’s up from 1.26% the year before.

The Louisiana housing market varies considerably, depending on where you are in the state. The median home value in Louisiana was $152,900 as of 2017, but the numbers change based on where you’re buying. In Baton Rouge, for example, the median home price is $247,000, and in New Orleans, it’s $309,950 as of publication.

Those prices are among the highest in the state, but they still fall close to or under FHA loan limits for Louisiana. The FHA sets loan limits each year based on current housing prices. This year, the maximum FHA loan amount that can be taken out for a single-family home in Louisiana is $314,827.

How are FHA loan limits calculated?

The FHA releases new loan limits each year according to area housing prices. Nationally, the “floor” for FHA loan limits in 2019 is $314,827 for a single-family home. Loan limits adjust upward to a “ceiling” of $726,525 in high-cost locations.

The limits in each state can vary by county based on local property values. The range for a multi-family property is, of course, higher than for a single-family unit. However, the FHA loan limit for a single-family home is $314,827 for all of Louisiana in 2019.

Are you eligible for an FHA loan in Louisiana?

To learn whether you qualify for an FHA loan in Louisiana, check out the MagnifyMoney guide to FHA loans. There you’ll find requirements regarding credit scores, debt-to-income ratios, and other key lending standards for these loans.

2019 FHA Loan Limits in Arkansas

Editorial Note: The content of this article is based on the author’s opinions and recommendations alone. It has not been previewed, commissioned or otherwise endorsed by any of our network partners.

Looking for a home to buy in Arkansas? Arkansas is an affordable place to live. The median home value in Arkansas is $118,500, well under the median U.S. home sale price, which was $302,400 in November 2018.

Still, Arkansas home prices have been rising in recent years. In 2018, prices were projected to increase by 1.4%, according to the National Association of Realtors. Home prices in the northwest part of the state particularly rose. Washington County saw a 6.8% jump in the average residential sales price from $213,995 in January 2018 to $228,616 in December of the same year. During that period, Benton County had an average home price increase of 4.5%, from $233,632 to $244,199, according to the Northwest Arkansas Board of Realtors.

Most of the state is rural, with 55 of its 75 counties designated as such by the federal government. Ten additional counties have designated eligible census tracts, which means those areas are regarded as rural even though they are within metropolitan countries. More than a third of Arkansas’s population lived in rural areas as of 2017, but people are increasingly moving toward urban areas.

Whether you want to buy a home in a rural area or are joining the growing ranks of the urban population in Arkansas, you may be considering a Federal Housing Administration (FHA)-backed mortgage. FHA loans are attractive because the down payment and credit requirements are lower than on conventional loans. A 3.5% down payment and 580 credit score may be enough to qualify (though the down payment amount increases for lower scores).

Arkansas represented 0.87% of all FHA Forward loans in the country in 2018, up from 0.80% in 2017. Lenders originated 10,212 FHA loans worth $1.4 billion in Arkansas in 2016, the most recent year for which such data is available.

The FHA, which is part of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), adjusts loan limits each year based on current housing prices. The 2019 limit for an FHA loan in Arkansas is $314,827.

How are FHA loan limits calculated?

The annual FHA loan limits reflect the year’s housing prices in a given area, as the government adjusts the numbers annually based on the market.

This year’s loan limit for single-family homes in low-cost areas across the United States is $314,827, up from $294,515 in 2018. The low-cost area limit is known as the “floor” for FHA loans, while the limit for high-cost areas — which is currently $726,525 for single-family properties — is called the “ceiling.” If you want to buy a property with more than one unit, check out the national FHA loan limits for multi-unit properties.

The loan limit across Arkansas is $314,827 for 2019.
