What Makes A Jumbo Home Loan Jumbo?
A jumbo loan is a mortgage that's larger than the conforming limit in a given county. This can vary pretty drastically depending on where you live. In Los Angeles County, for example, the limit on a single unit is more than $820,000. A jumbo loan is different from a conforming loan in that they usually require higher down payments and lower debt to income ratios.
How You Can Qualify For A Jumbo Loan
As mentioned in the paragraph above, in order to qualify for a jumbo loan, you will need a higher down payment and a lower debt to income ratio. A jumbo loan also means that you’ll have a larger monthly payment.
