417k is the max loan amount these days?I just found out that if you are putting 10% down, then 417k is the max amount you can get for a loan in most places. My broker said that high cost of living places like NYC will get you more money.I'm looking at Hartford Ct and 417k but I was just surprised at that amount because it doesn't buy you THAT much house.So all of these houses that are listed at 700k and up need a buyer with 300k cash to buy their house? Is this in all places or should I ask another broker?December 30 2008 - Richmond00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
