Home loans are classified in a wide variety of ways. They can be classified by the amount loaned, whether the interest rate can be adjusted or not, the length of the payback period and so on. A fairly common and simple term to understand is the jumbo loan.
A jumbo loan, is a loan that exceeds the maximum dollar amount guidelines set by FANNIE MAE, for a single family loan limit. Effective January 1st, 2005, this limit is $359,650 in all states except AK and HI. The limit is $539,475 in AK and HI. Most lenders use the Fannie may guide when underwriting loans over these set limits.
A jumbo loan is simply a mortgage in excess of the amounts set by government backed agencies that buy or guarantee loans. Companies such as Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, HUD, etc. will guarantee the purchase of a loan from a lender if certain conditions are met. A discussion of those conditions is beyond this article, but one of them is the amount being borrowed. Depending on the agency in question. If the amount you are borrowing is less than this amount, then it is known as a conforming loan. If you need to borrow more, the loan is known as a non-conforming loan or “jumbo” loan.
Given the higher risk from the perspective of the lender, you can expect to be treated a bit differently. In this case, lenders are going to charge higher interest rates than you would be able to get with a conforming loan. Before you panic, keep in mind we are talking about a quarter of a point in interest. For example, a conforming loan for $300,000 may have an interest rate of 5.5 percent whereas the same borrower will have to pay 5.75 percent if they borrow $800,000
A Jumbo Mortgage is a mortgage with a loan amount above conventional loan limits. Jumbo Mortgages apply when agency (FNMA and FHLMC) limits don't cover the full loan amount. Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FHLMC) are large agencies that purchase the bulk of residential mortgages in the U.S. They set a limit on the maximum dollar value of any mortgage which they will purchase from an individual lender. Currently, this limit is $322,700. This leaves a portion of the market to look elsewhere for placement. Other large investors, such as insurance companies and banks, step in to fill the need with maximum mortgage amounts going to the one million or two million dollar range. The average interest rates are typically greater than normal for conforming mortgages, and vary depending on property types and mortgage amount.
