What is a Jumbo Loan?
Every year, the Federal Housing Finance Agency sets the maximum conforming loan limits for mortgages acquired by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Most mortgages fall within this cap. However, borrowers who need a larger loan would apply for a Jumbo loan, also known as a non-conforming loan. When you apply for a jumbo mortgage, you can still choose between a fixed or adjustable-rate as well as other loan terms.
Jumbo Loan Benefits
- Buy a more expensive home: Whether you’re looking in a higher price range for size, amenities, or both, a jumbo loan can put your dream home within reach.
- Low down payment: You don’t necessarily need to put 20 percent down to obtain a jumbo loan.
- Refinance: Jumbo Loans can also be used to refinance an existing mortgage.
When to Choose a Jumbo Loan
Jumbo loan lenders take on greater risk, so they may have stricter standards for credit approval. Consider a jumbo loan when you’re in a strong financial position and feel confident that you will maintain your current income level. As an alternative, you could make a larger down payment in order to get your loan within the conforming limit. With both conforming and non-conforming mortgages, you can choose between fixed-rate and ARM options.

Jumbo Loan FAQs
The process of applying for a jumbo loan is similar to that of a conforming mortgage. There may be stricter requirements with a jumbo loan for your credit score, down payment, cash reserves, and debt-to-income ratio.
A 20 percent down payment may be required just to get the jumbo loan, which would negate the need for PMI. However, if your lender permits a lower down payment then you may have to pay PMI until you attain 20 percent equity in your home.
Yes, jumbo loans can be refinanced into another jumbo loan with a lower rate or into a conforming mortgage once you’ve paid enough of your jumbo loan off.
