Comeback Of NON-QM Mortgages After 2008 Real Estate Meltdown

What is 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 to 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

What is 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 jumbo home loans than a conventional mortgage loan or government loans 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 homeowner’s 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 a 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.

High Risk Means Higher Rates And Tougher Lending Guidelines

Why High Risk Means Higher Rates And Tougher Lending Guidelines

Since Jumbo Home Loans are considered high risk, most lenders require borrowers to meet the following standards:

  • 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
  • 80% loan to value
  • One year of housing payment reserves which consists of principal, interest, taxes, and insurance
