A Non-Conventional Lending Solution
Jumbo loans are a type of conventional home financing. They are conventional because they are not in any way financed or insured through the federal government. Nonconventional loans, conversely, are insured through government divisions like the Federal Housing Administration. There are two main divisions of conventional loans: conforming and non-conforming (jumbo) loans. Conforming loans are repurchased by government-sponsored entities (GSEs) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. These GSEs set limits for which loans they will repurchase. Nonconforming loans exceed these limits, which vary depending on where you purchase a home.
In California, jumbo loan limits are higher than the average limits across the U.S. In Orange County, the limit is $679,650. In Sacramento and El Dorado counties, the limit is $517,500.
What’s Unique About a Jumbo Loan?
Jumbo loans have a few unique characteristics to consider:
- Jumbo loans require at least 10% down payment.
- They have more stringent qualifying requirements than conventional loans. To get approved for these high-value loans, you should have a low debt-to-income ratio and be in good or better credit standing.
- Jumbo loans can have fixed or adjustable interest rates
- Terms can vary depending on your needs and goals
