Colorado Springs 2024 Conforming Loan Limits

Jason Kauffman | May 20, 2024

Conforming Loan Limit: $766,550
FHA Loan Limit: $517,500

How are loan limits established?

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) sets the loan limits for conforming mortgages each year. These limits dictate the maximum loan size that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the two government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), can purchase. FHA loan limits are influenced by the FHFA loan limits, but there isn’t a direct correlation.

In the Colorado Springs area, El Paso and Teller counties have been combined into a single MSA that has its own set of Conventional loan limits. FHA mortgages have a separate set of loan limits that are lower.

Below are loan limits for FHA and Conventional financing in the Colorado Springs area. We’ve detailed both Conventional and FHA loan limits. It’s important to draw a distinction because the Conventional loan limits are significantly higher.

  • Conventional Standard Loan Limits
    • 1-unit: $766,550
    • 2-unit: $981,500
    • 3-unit: $1,186,350
    • 4-unit: $1,474,400
  • FHA Loan Limits
    • 1-unit: $517,500
    • 2-unit: $662,500
    • 3-unit: $800,800
    • 4-unit: $995,200

Why did the loan limits go up in 2024?

Loan limits in the Springs area have been steadily on the rise over the recent past due to the increases in home prices across Colorado. It’s possible the FHFA could hold off on increasing the loan limits in 2025 if the housing prices stabilize.
