Also known as a non-conforming home loan, a jumbo home loan follows the guidelines quite closely to traditional home loans but there are a few marked differences that deserve mention. Firstly, a jumbo home loan is primarily used for larger property purchases than their conventional, USDA, FHA, or VA home loan counterparts. Moreover, with the average amount of a jumbo home loan exceeding the loan limits of the FHFA as well as both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the nation’s two leading mortgage lenders, next to the United States Department of Agriculture & the Federal Housing Administration) in most cases, it’s safe to conclude that jumbo home loans are more of the exception as opposed to the rule regarding home loans. Secondly, when a home buyer opts for a jumbo home loan through a mortgage lender in which to purchase their home, they’re doing so without the added endorsement of both the U.S. Government and Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae. What that usually translates into is higher interest rates for the jumbo home loan due to the lack of backing or subsidizing safeguards that typically bolster other home loans, such as a VA home loan, USDA home loan, or an FHA home loan. Lastly, what is often the most redemptive balancing of higher interest rates associated with a jumbo home loan is the ability for certain borrowers to choose between a fixed-rate jumbo mortgage and an adjustable-rate jumbo mortgage.
Considering the amount of money being borrowed that qualifies as a jumbo home loan is quite substantial, it’s often the case that the recipient of the jumbo home loan is endeavoring to purchase a rather large property or one that is located in a very affluent neighborhood. However, there are certain endowments regarding the property types available for purchase through a jumbo home loan that bears drawing attention to; chief among them being the lack of restrictions on property occupation versus property investment.

We shopped around for the lowest rate to refinance our current mortgage and no one could beat them.Our experience from beginning to end was outstanding!
I have never experienced a loan process that went so smoothly (this is my fourth). The team were amazing! They gave me the lowest rate among three lenders that I spoke with, they were always available and very friendly and I had communication with them throughout the entire process, they always kept me up-to-date with the file and everything went very smooth, even with some credit issues I have. And the loan was completed before we were scheduled to close so we were able to close early. I have a friend who used another lender at the same time and she went through so many hassles and had to extend their closing. Next time she’ll use them also have a much better experience. Thank you!
From top to bottom our refinance with them was flawless. They was able to provide the best rate of anyone else we checked with, we were able to skip 2 mortgage payments, lower our monthly payment by almost 10%, and even walked out of closing with cash. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new home loan or a refinance.
They work hard to get you the best interest rate and they have really low fees. That's first. But they also are great to work with, friendly and professional, and gets back to you in a timely fashion. I've purchased many properties and two now with them. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone.
They were perfect to work with every step of the way. They helped me find the right loan product for my situation and kept me informed with each and every step of the process. They made sure everything was in place and there were never any surprises, I loved the communication - they are definitely on top of it. They helped make this a painless process and my loan closed in a very timely manner. I would recommend them for any of your loan needs and I know they will find the best solutions for your situation.
Their team are THE BEST!! They went out of their way to make sure I was always taken care of. They gave me the lowest interest rate of any lender I met with and after my loan was already approved they found me a BETTER rate. They just kept looking even after the deal was done and they had no reason to, they lowered my rate and surprised me with a lower payment. Who does that?!? And their team was so friendly and professional they just made the whole process great. I will tell everyone I know to use their team every chance I get- Thank you!!!
They are a great team of loan officers who helped me buy a new house last summer. Their team was always quick to answer my questions and was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new team of loan officers. Their friendly and outgoing personality make them a delight to work with.
I've had the pleasure of working with them twice for a new loan origination and a refinance. Both instances they completely exceeded my expectations. On our original loan, we were looking for our first home while my wife was pregnant with our first child. It is generally an extremely challenging time to look for a home and go through your first loan process, but they made the experience pleasant and easy as they are exceptional on their knowledge and follow-up. When we were ready to do a refinance we went through them again and it was a very easy low stress process that ended up saving us a lot of money. I am very happy to recommend them in the highest regard, they are exceptional at what they do and are a pleasure to work with. Thanks!
They helped my husband and I purchase our first new home. They were fantastic, with lightning quick responses and willingness to work around our schedule. In addition, they made the process super easy, from pre-qualification to closing. We would recommend their team to anyone looking to purchase a new home!
