Jumbo Loan

You’re buying a home that requires a mortgage above the conforming limits for mortgages in your area. You’ve got the income and cash reserves to support a large house loan. If your credit score and down payment are strong too, a jumbo loan can get you into your dream home.

Jumbo Loans are especially attractive to…

  • Borrowers with qualifying credit scores, asset levels, and significant down payments.
  • Buyers who need a mortgage above the conforming limit of $726,525 in Alaska, Hawaii, Guam or the U.S. Virgin Islands or $484,350 everywhere else in the U.S.
  • Buyers who can easily cover larger-than-average monthly mortgage payments.

Conforming mortgages are Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae-backed loans with limits of $484,350 in all states except Alaska, Hawaii, Guam or the U.S. Virgin Islands, where the limit is $726,525. Jumbo loans allow you to go outside those limits and buy a more expensive home if you qualify.
