People often ask us

A jumbo loan is a type of mortgage in which the loan amount exceeds the limit set by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, or FHFA. They're primarily designed for purchasing luxury homes or homes in highly competitive housing markets.

The major difference between jumbo loans and conventional home loans is their size. Due to their larger size, jumbo loans are ineligible for Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac to purchase or guarantee, making them slightly riskier than conventional mortgages. As a result, eligibility requirements are usually stricter for jumbo loans.

To qualify for a jumbo loan, it helps to have excellent credit with a score above 700, as well as a low debt-to-income ratio, or DTI. Some lenders may ask for documentation showing you have enough cash on hand to cover the first 6 months or 1 year of mortgage payments.

Each year, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, or FHFA, determines the maximum loan limit for conventional mortgages in the US. In certain places, including higher cost-of-living areas, the limit is higher. You can visit Fannie Mae to see this year's loan limits. To purchase a single-family home above the limit in your area, you'll need a jumbo loan.
