What are Jumbo Loans?

Jumbo Loans are mortgage loans that are not insured by the government (like FHA, VA, USDA Loans), but they typically meet the lending guidelines that have been set by institutional investors. Typically, jumbo loans have better rates, terms and/or lower fees than other types of loans. However, jumbo loans typically require a borrower to have excellent credit, reasonable amounts of monthly debt obligations, a down payment of 20% and reliable monthly income. Jumbo loans are ideal for borrowers with excellent credit and at least a 25% down payment.
