That's why we created our jumbo mortgage lending program - a full suite of offerings designed with the needs of borrowers that seek larger loan amounts than were available through traditional lending options.
It's as simple as it sounds. We call it a jumbo mortgage because it is larger than other more "typical" home mortgage loans.
If you are seeking a loan amount in excess of $548,250, then you need a jumbo mortgage loan. Each year, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac , two government sponsored enterprises, set loan maximums. When loan amounts exceed their limits - the borrower is purchasing a jumbo mortgage loan.
Depending on the borrower's financial profile, you can qualify for $548,250 to $1,500,000.
That depends on the type of loan. Credit scores for jumbo mortgages are similar to conventional credit score requirements.
