It’s a big one! Jumbo loans are designed to purchase more expensive homes. Each year, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and their regulator, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), set size limits for loans that they’ll buy from lenders. These agencies won’t buy Jumbo loans, so they need to be sold on the secondary market, and that often makes the cost of getting a Jumbo mortgage higher than the cost of a conforming mortgage.
Jumbo loan features:
Finance larger homes over the local conventional conforming limits
Get a loan that’s above the conforming limit of $484,350 and $726,525 in high-cost areas, and up to $2 million
20% down payment
15-year or 30-year fixed rate options
Purchase and refinance options, including cash-out refinance
Interest-only loan options
5/1 ARM option
Allows for primary residence, second home or investment property
