A jumbo loan is a nonconforming loan that allows borrowers to finance a home mortgage loan that exceeds the conforming maximum of $453,100 (this amount varies depending on the area of the country you are in). This is ideal for purchasing luxury or larger homes whose price surpasses the conforming maximum of conventional loans. This type of loan is the best and only option for those who wish to borrow more than $453,100 for a home or refinance. The rates for jumbo loans can be the same, higher, or lower than those for conforming loans.With the fluctuating market, jumbo loans do come with stricter requirements, but do follow a similar process of typical conforming loans. Generally, a 5-20% downpayment is required which can potentially lower fixed or adjustable rates. This offers flexibility for financing a larger loan.
