A jumbo mortgage is a loan that falls outside of the conforming loan limits set by the FHFA. A jumbo loan allows you to purchase a home with a sale price over conforming loan limit ($548,250- in most areas). Typically, jumbo loans require high credit scores, low DTI, and cash reserves. Who is a Jumbo designed for?  A jumbo 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is a convenient way to finance your dream home without requiring a second mortgage or tying up cash. If you are looking to buy a high-priced or luxury home and have a lower debt-to-income ratio, a higher credit score, and a larger down payment, a jumbo loan may be right for you. Jumbo loans typically have stricter loan requirements, however, Geneva Financial is excited to offer two new jumbo loan products with unique guidelines.
