For 2019, the FHA loan limits for a single-family home in the Silver State range from $314,827 to $423,200. A 2016 FHA report discovered that 37.7% of the total FHA mortgages in the country came from Nevada, the second-highest proportion of these loans by state in the United States that year. The data, which is the most recent available, showed that 13,593 of the 36,023 homes financed in 2015 were purchased through FHA loans.

When it comes to home prices in Nevada, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) said prices have significantly increased over the past year.

How are FHA loan limits set?

The FHA loan limits are based on the conforming loan limit — or how large of a mortgage Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will purchase — and are set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In 2019, the national limit is $484,350.

For 2019, the largest mortgage the agency will insure, or the FHA “floor,” in most of the country is set at $314,827, or 65% of the conforming loan limit. The FHA “ceiling,” which applies to high-cost areas, is set at 150% of the conforming loan limit, or $726,525. Outside of a few exceptions, this is the highest mortgage the agency will insure for a single-family home.

Here are the 2019 standard FHA limits for all property types:

  • One-unit: $314,827
  • Two-unit: $403,125
  • Three-unit: $487,250
  • Four-unit: $605,525

Here are the 2019 standard FHA limits for high-cost areas:

  • One-unit: $726,525
  • Two-unit: $930,300
  • Three-unit: $1,124,475
  • Four-unit: $1,397,400
