VA Announces the 2019 Loan Limits For Loans Closed on or After January 1, 2019
In Circular 26-18-17 VA announced the 2019 county loan limits effective for loans closed on or after
January 1, 2019.
County loan limits do not apply to Interest Rate Reduction Refinance Loans (IRRRLs) as VA guarantees 25 percent of the loan amount on a IRRRL, regardless of whether the loan exceeds the limit for the particular county.
VA loans (not applicable to IRRRLs) closed on or after January 1, 2019 are eligible for the higher county loan limits even if the application date was in 2018.
