The largest loan size permitted on a particular loan program. For programs
where the loan is targeted for sale to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, the maximum will be the largest
loan eligible for purchase by these agencies. On FHA loans, the maximums are set by the Federal
Housing Administration, and vary somewhat by state and county. On other loans, maximums are set by
lenders.
