Last thought, an insider’s tip. Home buyers in the beginning of the year will get more bang for their buck from these increased limits. That is to say, as the year progresses, the 2019 FHA loan limits will likely fail to keep pace with median and average home price gains.

As a result, buying earlier in the year gives you greater purchasing power with a low money down option for high cost homes!
