Jumbo loan amounts are those that exceed $548,250 and are available on primary, single family, detached residences. This could be for the purchase or refinance of your home.
There was a time when jumbo mortgages were hard to come by and if you could get them, the rate was quite a bit higher than the non-jumbo mortgages. The jumbo market has changed recently and rates have come down more in comparison with the conforming loan interest rates.
Banks are looking for more in reserves on a jumbo loan than they would with a conforming loan. Typically, they are looking for at least 6 months of principal, interest, taxes, and insurance still left in your accounts after the down payment and closing costs.
