What is a Jumbo Loan?

The conforming loan limit for most counties is $647,200. Any borrower purchasing a property with a loan over $647,200 will need a jumbo home loan. There are several types of non-conforming loans, and a jumbo loan is one of them. Any loan over the conforming loan limit will require a jumbo loan.

Qualification Requirements of a Jumbo Loan

Due to the lack of government-sponsored enterprise guarantees from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, jumbo loans are considered riskier by lenders. Hence, the underwriting criteria for jumbo loans are stricter.

  • Credit Score

Lenders prefer a credit score of 740 and above for jumbo loans. A few mortgage lenders may extend a jumbo loan to borrowers with a credit score of 700 – 730, but that isn’t the industry norm.

  • Income

A typical jumbo loan has a hard cap of 45% back-end debt-to-income ratio (DTI). The DTI ratio requirement may vary among lenders, but most prefer a lower debt-to-income ratio when underwriting a jumbo loan.

A W-2 employee will be required to provide a most recent month’s paycheck stubs and the previous two years’ W2s. Self-employed borrowers must provide their last two years’ personal and business tax returns. In place of a recent paycheck stub, self-employed borrowers must show a current or year-to-date profit and loss (P&L) statement. 

  • Assets

All loans will require the borrower to show where the source of funds to close on the loan comes from. The previous two months of bank statements may suffice for a conventional-conforming loan but may not be good enough for a jumbo loan.

Cash reserves are the key to getting approved for any type of mortgage, especially a jumbo loan. Most lenders will require 12 – 24 months of reserve, depending upon the strength of the file. Cash reserve is an excellent compensating factor on which the underwriter gives much weight.

What is a Jumbo Mortgage Loan?

Jumbo home loans, also called a non-conforming home loans, are home loan that exceeds the county lending limits of the government entitled loans secured by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. The lending threshold differs by state and county and is determined by the maximum county limits for Fannie mae.com. Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Jumbo loans are backed by private investors and have different underwriting requirements from traditional Conventional and government home loans.  Meaning no guarantee or protection of foreclosure is provided to the investors.  Consequently, mortgage underwriting guidelines are not standardized and generally subject to the individual investor requirements. These guidelines are typically more restrictive, but do make it possible for larger home purchases to be financed.
