Because great big homes come with great big price tags.

A jumbo mortgage is a home loan for an amount that exceeds the conforming loan limits established by the Federal Housing Finance Agency.  For most counties in the United States, the conforming loan limit is $647,200.  Other higher-cost areas carry limits up to $970,800.    

What are some other differences with jumbo financing?  Well, jumbo mortgages typically have higher down payment requirements and stricter underwriting than conforming loans. In addition, at least 6 months’ worth of reserve funds (i.e. monthly housing payments) is required.
