What is a Jumbo Loan?
A Jumbo Mortgage is any single loan amount over the conforming loan limit set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which is currently $484,350 for a one-unit property in most of the United States. Conforming limits may be higher in areas of the country with more expensive housing; for example, the conforming limit is $726,525 in Alaska and Hawaii. Jumbo Mortgages are non-conforming loans, so they are not backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
What are the benefits of a Jumbo Loan?
Jumbo Loans offer the following features:
- Allow purchase of a more expensive home.
- In some cases, no private mortgage insurance is required with a larger down payment.
- Closing costs are about the same as other mortgage programs.
- Flexibility to take advantage of refinance opportunities.
Who may benefit from a Jumbo Loan?
A Jumbo Loan may the right fit for you if:
- You can afford a more expensive primary or second home and higher monthly payments.
- You want a 15-year or 30-year fixed rate.
