FHA loan limits for Minnesota in 2020

Nearly 20% of today’s buyers will purchase their home using an FHA loan, which is a loan type that is backed by the Federal Housing Administration.

Sometimes called “helper loans,” FHA loans are designed for buyers who may have less to put down at closing or who have less-than-perfect credit. Because the FHA takes on more risk lending to these buyers, they also set a limit on how much buyers can take out when securing an FHA loan. In 2020, the FHA loan limit increased for every county across Minnesota, with the exception of Sibley County.

Most Minnesota counties now have an FHA loan limit of $331,760. Some of the more expensive counties have higher limits. Below are the 2020 FHA loan limits for each county in Minnesota.

Remember, some cities span more than one county. Ask your REALTOR® or lender about the loan limit you can expect if you’re searching for homes near county lines.
