Jumbo Loan Programs

A Jumbo loan is a mortgage loan with an amount larger than conforming loan limits set by the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) which sets the conforming loan limit size annually. For most areas of Florida, the maximum loan size for a conforming mortgage is $484,350 (2019 limits) for a single unit property. Above this amount, all loans are considered to be Jumbo loans unless you are in a high balance area.

Jumbo mortgage loans are not eligible to be insured by FHA, purchased, or securitized by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, as they are considered non-conforming.

Jumbo mortgage loans are often securitized by institutions other than Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. These mortgage loans carry a greater credit risk than those issued by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, and therefore, come with higher interest rates. However, in recent years the spread in interest rates between jumbo and conventional mortgages has been reduced.

When it comes to Jumbo mortgage loans, the larger the loan is, the tougher the lending requirements will be. Each lender has different requirements. At High Definition Mortgage Inc., having access to several secondary market investors, gives us a better opportunity to help you shop for the best mortgage loan for you, with just one credit pull. Lender loan limits vary from $1 million to $10 million. Loan to value (LTV) limits range from 65% to 90%. Some lenders limits are fixed, whereas others have mixed flexibility. Remember, the higher the lender risk, the higher the interest rate may be.
Another option for a consumer may be to look into a combination loan, which would be a standard Conventional loan up to the $484,350 conforming limit with a trailing second mortgage. However, most second mortgages are limited to a ten year note or balloon payment at tens years. We would recommend have a well thought out plan before taking this route.
