The Federal Housing Administration will increase loan limits across most areas in the United States in 2017 to reflect rising home prices, the agency announced Thursday.

FHA will increase its national loan limit "floor" to $275,665 in 2017 from $271,050. This limit is set at 65% of the national conforming loan limit, which the Federal Housing Finance Agency said last week would expand to $424,100.
