Mortgage loans vary considerably. In fact, there may be as many different types of loans as there are types of borrowers. However, most loans are designed to meet the needs of the biggest market: middle-class Americans reaching for their piece of the American dream—a nice house with a small yard, maybe some good neighbors.

But what if your dream is bigger than the average American’s?

If your idea of the good life carries a higher price tag, you may be in the market for a Jumbo Mortgage Loan.

What is a Jumbo Mortgage Loan?

A jumbo loan is just what it sounds like: a mortgage loan, only bigger. More specifically, they are loans over the “conforming” loan amount set by lending giant Fannie Mae. That loan amount varies by county, and while it takes into consideration specific market area circumstances, it is set for most of the country at $453,100. Loan amounts greater than that are typically considered jumbo or even super jumbo mortgage loans.

Are Jumbo Loan Rates Higher?

Higher loan amounts generally mean higher risks for lenders and that risk is balanced in several ways. Most lenders require a larger down payment from the borrower, usually as much as 20%-50% of the loan amount. And yes, they generally come with a higher interest rate. They may also require private mortgage insurance (PMI) as another layer of risk mitigation, and carry stricter underwriting standards, such as a higher minimum credit score and a lower debt-to-income ratio (DTI).  This can mean that jumbo loans are generally out of reach for the average borrower.

But not always…
