Jumbo loans are also referred to as non-conforming loans because they do not conform to Fannie Mae and/or Freddie Mac’s conforming loan limits. Higher priced homes is considered riskier for lenders. This is because it takes longer to sell a higher priced home versus a traditional home after foreclosure. It may take months and/or years to sell a higher priced home.

However, not everyone is a car enthusiast and the 12 garage spaces may be a negative for most home buyers. Most people will have two to three vehicles and do not need 12 car spaces.
