What is a jumbo loan?

Jumbo loans are used to finance homes with loans exceeding the loan limits set by government sponsored entities (GSEs). It is suitable for borrowers who want to buy luxury homes or refinance existing large mortgages. Jumbo loans allow you to have larger loans at a lower rate because it does not conform to the requirements set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

ELIGIBILITY

You may be eligible to qualify for a jumbo loan if you can meet these requirements:

  • Have a decent credit score (680 and above)
  • Have a low debt-to-income (DTI) ratio (under 43% at least)

Benefits

  1. Jumbo loans can assist you in borrowing the money needed to purchase pricier properties.
  2. You can choose from a variety of different loan programs that may give you flexibility on your loan terms.
  3. You can borrow the full amount of money from one loan instead of having to break it up into two different loans for buying a higher-priced home. This may allow you to have better interest rates.

One thing to keep in mind: these loans will naturally come with higher interest rates. To qualify, a good credit history is essential, so double check all credit reports for any potential inaccuracies. In general, being accepted for a jumbo loan is difficult, so you must also be able to prove that your income is high enough to be able to afford monthly mortgage payments.
