You may need a mortgage to finance the purchase when you buy a new property. A jumbo mortgage can provide you the larger funds traditional loans do not cover — given that you
can find a lender that offers one, satisfy the requirements, and afford the higher cost.
A jumbo loan, also known as a jumbo mortgage, is a type of financing that surpasses the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) set. Unlike conventional mortgages, a jumbo loan cannot be purchased, guaranteed, or securitized. Jumbo mortgages are designed to finance luxury properties and homes in highly competitive local real estate markets and have unique underwriting requirements and tax implications. These mortgages have gained traction as the housing market recovered following the Great Recession.
Underwriting criteria for jumbo loans are stricter because the loans are more extensive and riskier for lenders.
If you want to buy a more expensive house than usual, a jumbo loan can help you get the financing you require. Jumbo loans aren’t just used to buy a primary residence; this type of loan is also popular for investment properties and vacation homes.
“Housing is a great investment. In general, the people getting jumbo loans are the most creditworthy, and the money being leveraged is being put back into their businesses,” says John Lynch, the CEO of PCMA.
