What’s a jumbo mortgage loan?
 

Jumbo mortgages are home loans that exceed conforming loan limits. A jumbo loan is one way to buy a high-priced or luxury home. If you have a lower debt-to-income ratio and a higher credit score, a jumbo loan may be right for you.

The limit on conforming loans is $424,100 in most areas of the country, but jumbo mortgages can exceed these limits. Even so, if you’re considering a home in a high-cost area, you may still be able to obtain a conforming fixed-rate mortgage or adjustable-rate mortgage for up to $636,150. FHA loans have limits up to $721,050. Contact a mortgage loan officer to learn more.
