Homeowners facing foreclosure won't be evicted over the holiday season if their mortgages are owned by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac . The two government-sponsored mortgage giants announced Monday that their annual eviction moratorium will run from December 17 through January 2. While mortgage servicers and lenders may still engage in legal activities related to foreclosure, affected families won't be locked out of the homes. This step should bring "a greater measure of certainty," Freddie said in a release. "We encourage homeowners who may be struggling with their mortgage or facing possible foreclosure to reach out," Fannie officials noted.

The United States will finance single-family home mortgages as high as $484,350 across much of the country next year, according to the regulator for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the mortgage finance companies that are owned by taxpayers. The new loan limit means more large homes are eligible for backing by Fannie and Freddie - companies conceived to promote home ownership.
A federal regulator on Tuesday raised the dollar amount of mortgages that can be backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac as home prices continue to surge. Despite recent deceleration, prices of homes backed by the two government-sponsored enterprises rose 6.9% on average between the third and fourth quarters. That means that the base home loan limit will increase the same amount. In most of the U.S., that maximum will become $484,350, up from $453,100 in 2018. The cap for higher-cost areas will be $726,525.
