Comeback Of NON-QM Mortgages After 2008 Real Estate Meltdown

After the 2008 housing market meltdown, Jumbo lenders took a major hit with the thousands of foreclosures:

  • Many Jumbo mortgage lenders offered stated income/no doc Jumbo home loans
  • This was offered as long as the home buyer had at least 20% down payment
  • It was fairly easy to get a Jumbo mortgage
  • Unfortunately, the historical high foreclosure rates affected the higher end homes
  • Many of those homes plummeted more than 20% of their values during the real estate market collapse
  • The real estate crisis left many Jumbo lenders losing millions if not billions of dollars
  • After the housing collapse, Jumbo lenders eliminated the stated income/no doc mortgage lending program
  • All Jumbo lenders set extremely high credit and income standards
  • 25% down payment and 740 scores and no greater than 40% debt to income ratios were the norm to qualify for a Jumbo mortgage post the real estate meltdown
  • Most Jumbo lenders also required borrowers have at least one year reserve
  • A bankruptcy, foreclosure, deed in lieu of foreclosure, or short sale were not permitted in order to qualify for a Jumbo mortgage

Risk For Lenders With Jumbo Home Loans

Jumbo Home Loans are viewed riskier in the eyes of any mortgage lender.

  • Higher end homes are tougher to sell
  • It also takes longer to sell in the market place in general
  • It is also tougher to qualify for a jumbo home loans than a conventional mortgage loan or government loan such as FHA, VA, or USDA
  • There are cases where high end homes are listed in the market place for over a year without a single showing
  • Higher end homes are normally custom homes that are custom built to suit the homeowners needs
  • A home buyer who is qualified to purchase a high end home will be pickier on the home he or she chooses than a home buyer who only has a certain budget on a home purchase
  • A high end home buyer normally has the means to build his or her own home
  • High end home buyers build their homes to their liking and tastes
  • If a jumbo lender forecloses on high end luxury home, the home can sit for a long time
  • Due to these reasons, jumbo loans are considered riskier loans
  • Higher risk means higher interest rates

  • Higher credit scores
  • Lower debt to income ratios
  • Lower loan to values
  • Reserves
  • Most Jumbo lenders have a 740 score credit requirement
  • Maximum 40% debt to income ratio cap
