On Nov. 25, 2015, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA)  released the 2016 conforming Loan Limits for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.  The national conforming loan limit remained at $417,000 while 39 additional counties were added as high cost areas which raises the limit up to $625,500 in the most costly areas.  FHFA requested comment on and implemented new methodology for its housing price index to better reflect the changes in the broader housing market.
