More About The Jumbo Loan Program,

A jumbo loan, also known as a non-conforming mortgage, is a type of financing that exceeds the limits set by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA). It’s classified as a non-conforming mortgage which means that it’s not eligible to be purchased or securitized by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.

To qualify for a Jumbo loan, you’ll need a good credit score and a lower debt-to-income ratio. You may also need enough cash reserves or assets to cover about 6-12 months’ worth of your mortgage payments.

Jumbo Loan Options

  • Conventional

    Conventional loans may be ideal for those borrowers that have good credit, a low debt-to-income (DTI) ratio and can typically make a down payment of 20% of the loan amount. There are options though for those that need or want to make a lower down payment.

  • VA

    Veteran’s Administration or “VA” loans are available for active, non-active and retired Army, Air Force, Marine, Navy, National Guard, and Coast Guard veterans (or their eligible surviving spouses) who meet the established service requirements.

  • FHA

    The FHA program may be a great option if your homebuying needs and situation preclude you from qualifying for a conventional loan. This specific loan option is designed for those who want to buy a home but may not qualify through conventional loan programs.

  • Fixed-Rate AND Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM)

    Fixed-Rate: The loan has a fixed interest rate for the entire life of the loan. ARM: The loan has an interest rate applied to the outstanding balance that varies throughout the life of the loan.
