What determines the FHA Loan Limits for each County?

The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) calculates the mortgage loan limits based on the median home prices in accordance with the National Housing Act.  FHA’s single family mortgage loan limits for forward mortgages are set using Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA) and county areas.  FHA publishes updated limits effective for each calendar year.  FHA sets the maximum FHA Loan limits at or between the low-cost area and high-cost area limits based on the median home prices for the area.

What are the New Delaware FHA Loan Limits for 2019?
