A jumbo loan is a home loan that is larger than “conforming” loans that lenders sell to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Instead of using maximums set by government-sponsored entities (GSEs), jumbo loans are issued by private lenders. Those lenders set their own rules for approval and often hold the loans as investments.Get Started Now
Jumbo mortgages typically require down payments of 20 percent or more. However, some mainstream jumbo lenders will work with down payments around 10 percent, and others programs offer with even lower requirements.
The loan is bigger and there are some extra qualifying steps, which can mean higher costs at the closing table.
Credit score requirements are about the same for Conforming and Jumbo: a credit score down to 680 generally gets you most available loan options, albeit with a higher rate than you’d get with a top-tier credit score of 780 or greater.
Because a Jumbo loan is not eligible for purchase by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, they must be sold on the secondary market. What does that mean for you? It means that they can have stricter credit score guidelines and may require larger down payments. Also, due to the larger amounts financed, there will be higher reserve requirements. Reserves are funds commonly referred to as “back-up” funds, in case anything happens to a customer’s job or any other life event, the Lender wants to see you have funds available to pay the monthly mortgage.
Down payments on jumbo loans can be as little as 10 percent for loan amounts of $1 million and sometimes higher, translating into a $1.1 million purchase price or higher. Unlike Conforming loans, these low-down Jumbo programs don’t always require mortgage insurance.
