Jumbo Home Loan

The qualification requirements for high-value mortgages are stricter in some ways and more flexible in other ways.

Buy Something Magnificent

A jumbo loan is a mortgage that exceeds the conforming loan limit set by the Federal Housing Finance Agency.

You’re not the average homebuyer, and you certainly aren’t looking at any old average home. You’ve got plenty of wealth set aside — just not quite enough to pay for the whole thing in cash!

Live Above the Limit

It’s possible to get a mortgage amount in the millions if you have the right income, credit and savings.

Though jumbo loans have an extra qualification requirement for cash reserves equal to a certain number of mortgage payments, other requirements can be a little more flexible than they are for conforming loans, depending on your situation.
