Loan Limits are the same across all of Alaska. The conforming loan limits for a single-family home anywhere in Alaska is $970,800.

Unlike other areas in the US, loan limits in Alaska are not based on the median home price. Loan limits in Alaska are set equal to the loan limit ceiling in accordance with the 2008 Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) which mandates all loan limits in Alaska be set to the maximum due to high cost of building homes.
