Jumbo Loan Programs
Loan packages of all types have specific criteria that must be met in order for a borrower to purchase a home or other property. Jumbo loans are no exception. Such loans are made available to prospective buyers if the loan itself exceeds the conforming and conforming high-balance limits as set forth by government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), namely Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Technically-speaking, any loan that does not meet the strict limits/guidelines of GSEs is considered a non-conforming loan, but a loan that does not meet guidelines specifically because the loan amount exceeds the guideline limits is known as a jumbo loan.
• The current conforming loan limit for a single-family home is $417,000 for all states (except Hawaii and Alaska, where it is $625,500).
• In certain federally-designated high-priced markets within the continental U.S., conforming high-balance limits range from $417,001 to $625,500, and in similar markets in Hawaii, range from $625,501 to $721,050.
• Jumbo loans are available for primary residences, second homes, vacation homes, or investment properties, and are also available in a variety of terms (including fixed-rate or adjustable-rate).
• Jumbo loans typically have higher interest rates than both conforming and conforming high-balance home loans and may also carry stricter underwriting and larger down payment requirements.
