What is a Jumbo Mortgage?
A jumbo home loan is known also known as a non-conforming mortgage. This is a loan a lender like Homestead Mortgage makes for an amount that exceeds the conforming limits regulated by guidelines of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The maximum conforming jumbo home loan limit in most markets throughout the U.S. is $424,100 and $636,150 in high-cost housing markets where home prices are above average. Please note: the limits are adjusted periodically by Fannie and Freddie, so please contact us to find out exactly what the limits are as of today.
Created by Congress in 1938 and 1970, the government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac provide stability and affordability to the mortgage market by buying conforming mortgages from lenders like Homestead Mortgage, which helps make more money available to them to be able to provide new loans to more borrowers. Loans greater than the set limits are called non-conforming mortgages, and require jumbo financing where the lender sets the guidelines.
