How Do I Qualify For Jumbo Mortgage Loans Versus Traditional Government And Conventional Loans

How Do I Qualify For Jumbo Mortgage Loans versus government and conventional loans? Qualifying for a jumbo loan is not much different than qualifying for a government and/or conventional loan with the exception of a higher down payment and higher rates. The jumbo mortgage process and the paperwork required by lenders are the same. The borrower’s credit scores and the down payment requirements can be different. Jumbo loans are considered higher-risk loans. In the event of a foreclosure, it will just take weeks or a few months to have a traditional home under contract. However, it may take months and/or years to sell a foreclosed higher-end home. The ability to repay a jumbo loan is an important factor analyzed by lenders.  Lenders will require a lower debt to income ratio on jumbo loans. Most lenders will require six months to 12 months of reserves on jumbo mortgages. Due to the higher risk factors on financing higher-end homes, lenders will charge a higher rate, require a higher down payment on jumbo loans, lower debt to income ratio, and/or reserves. Reserves are one month’s of principal, interest, taxes, and homeowners insurance.

Mortgage Guidelines On Jumbo Loans

Mortgage Guidelines On Jumbo Loans

Mortgage companies that lend on jumbo loans do not follow a set of agency mortgage guidelines. Lenders of jumbo mortgages have their own lending requirements. Jumbo mortgages are portfolio loans. Portfolio loans do not have to conform to Fannie Mae and/or Freddie Mac agency guidelines. Lenders of jumbo mortgages either hold the loans they originate and funds in their own portfolio or may sell it to hedge funds or other third-party buyers of mortgage-backed securities. Lenders of jumbo loans often have the flexibility to exempt certain lending requirements and/or make changes to their jumbo loan program requirements since they are portfolio lenders. For example, a jumbo lender may waive the reserve requirements or lower their credit score requirements if the subject borrower shows strong compensating factors. Other factors lenders can waive are a higher debt to income ratio, lower down payment requirement, or taking non-qualifying income as a strong compensating factor. There are jumbo lenders who can cross collateralize multiple properties to get the deal done.
