Lenders are back to offering jumbo home loans, which involve loan amounts above the compliant limit of $ 548,250.
This is great news for many homeowners and home buyers. The down payment for a jumbo is less than what you would traditionally need. Loan-to-value ratios can reach 89.99% with no mortgage insurance required.
Blue-chip jumbo loans were gone when the COVID lockdown began, but they are now back and worth considering.
These are available for primary, secondary and investment residences, and they can be used for purchase, rate / term and withdrawal refinances. 30-year fixed rate terms can reach a loan amount of $ 2,000,000.
The minimum credit score is 680 and the maximum debt ratio is 45%. Only one appraisal is required for loans up to $ 1,500,000; two appraisals are required for larger loan amounts. These loans are easily available at attractive prices.
