Jumbo Loans

Jumbo loans are home loans for a dollar amount higher than the loan limit used by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. They are sometimes called “nonconforming” loans. I can tell you what the current amount is.

Jumbo loans generally require lower debt-to-income ratios, higher credit scores, larger down payments, and higher reserves or emergency funds than conforming loans.
