Limit on Conventional Mortgages Will Go Up in 2024

In 2024, qualified Hawaiʻi homebuyers will be able to borrow more money than this year – more than even the current median price of a single-family home on Oʻahu.

The Federal Housing Finance Agency each year sets the maximum amount homebuyers can borrow on conforming mortgages. For most of the U.S., that maximum will be $766,500 in 2024, an increase of $40,350 from 2023.

Hawaiʻi, Alaska, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands, along with some pricey coastal metro areas and ski resorts, qualify for the higher loan limit, which is 150% higher than the limit for the rest of the U.S.

But with higher loan amounts come huge payments. At the current average rate of 7.22% for a 30-year mortgage, the monthly payment for a 2024 maximum-size loan would be $7,820.

Depressed Market for Mortgages

The statistics for mortgage loans in Hawai‘i this year reflects that scarcity. The number of mortgages issued by local and mainland banks was down 57.5% during the first three quarters of this year, compared to the same period last year, according to Title Guaranty Hawaii’s Mortgage Barometer. The dollar volume dropped 73.6%.
