What’s a Jumbo Loan and How Do You Qualify?

Are you looking to buy a new home? You may be surprised to learn what type of property you can get for your money, even in higher priced ranges.

Although house prices have been steadily climbing in the Long Beach area, and most of Southern California, they have yet to hit their peak – and that’s good news for you!  Today’s mortgage rates are at historic lows and there’s a wide availability of higher priced homes, so if you’re on the hunt for something with a big open floor plan, a large lot, and extra square footage, now is a good time to consider a jumbo loan.

Along with buying big comes a big mortgage, hence the term “jumbo loan.” Along with a jumbo loan comes jumbo commitment for both you and your mortgage advisor. But thankfully, qualifying for a jumbo mortgage is not as difficult as you might think.

What’s a jumbo loan?

There’s two important definitions to familiarize yourself with:

1) A jumbo loan is a home loan that exceeds a given market’s conforming loan limit.

2) A conforming loan limit is the maximum mortgage amount that Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae will buy from a loan originator. In most of the U.S., this amount is $417,000 but can be greater in certain designated high-priced markets.

How can I qualify to get a jumbo loan?

To buy a home with a large price tag and qualify for a jumbo loan, you’ll need to meet specific down payment, credit score and debt-to-income ratio requirements. But the availability of a variety of jumbo products means there’s some flexibility in these terms — even loans that only require a 10 or 15 percent down payment, or that allow a higher DTI ratio with a lower purchase price or higher credit score.

Does all this mortgage lingo sound a little confusing? It doesn’t need to be. The Julie Aragon Lending Team offers several jumbo loan options and we’re happy to walk you through the specifics of each one.

Julie was a breath of fresh air. She’s smart, experienced, easy to communicate with
If you're in the market for a mortgage broker... seriously, look no further

My hubby and I worked with Julie to purchase our first home and it was awesome
We actually screened a bunch of lenders before we decided to work with Julie, and we are really happy we did the research. Julie kept the process simple for us.    

She was able to help us understand the entire process
I would say without her and her team we probably would have lost our minds worrying over every little thing but she was able to help us every step of the way.

Julie!!!!!! You are the bomb.com!
You made it happen! When others always denied us... Thank you so much for helping us refinance our home! You are a miracle woman!

Her professional yet enthusiastic demeanor immediately put us at ease
...and actually turned an intimidating process into an exciting one. She sent us frequent updates, answered our questions quickly and thoroughly, coordinated with our realtor and escrow and just overall made everything run so smoothly.

THANK YOU JULIE AND TEAM for everything!
Julie not only gave us a great new rate, lower monthly payment but also the confidence that we were in great hands.

Julie is a ROCKSTAR!!!
This has been a positive experience from day one. Julie walked us through the process and was extremely communicative!
