Jumbo Mortgages

When you finance expensive property, you need a jumbo mortgage.

A Jumbo Loan is an excellent option for those looking to buy larger homes. A Jumbo Mortgage, or Jumbo Loan, consists of a home loan whose amount exceeds conforming loan limits imposed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored enterprises that buy mortgages from lenders.

Jumbo Mortgages

With home values increasing, you may find yourself in need of a larger loan amount. That's where a jumbo mortgage comes in. If your required loan amount is even $1 over your area's Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) conforming loan limit, a jumbo loan (or non-conforming loan) is needed.
