Up to $4 Million Loan Amounts
A jumbo loan is a mortgage that exceeds the mortgage loan limits that are not covered by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Since these two agencies purchase the majority of residential mortgages from lenders and banks in the United States, they set the parameters in regard to how much money can be borrowed through a mortgage loan. Any mortgage loan amount above these parameters is considered to be a jumbo loan. Loans over the $417,000 limit set for conventional loans are considered jumbo loans.
While jumbo loan parameters may change from year to year and may be slightly modified in certain parts of the United States, these loans are currently reserved for those who need to borrow anywhere from $417,000 to $2,000,000. In parts of the United States where housing is typically more costly, however, the bottom end is set at $625,500.
Today’s historically low interest rates make now the perfect time to purchase a new home or refinance.
One of the most popular types of mortgages is the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage. This loan is usually the easiest to qualify for and provides the maximum interest deduction at tax time. The interest rate stays the same over the life of the loan which provides unchanging low monthly payments.
No matter what the economy looks like, mortgage rates change on a daily, even hourly, basis. Rate fluctuations can cost or save you thousands of dollars. With that in mind, the question when shopping for a loan is whether it's best to lock in a rate or float the loan. Either way, there's risk.
