What Is A Jumbo Loan?
A jumbo loan is one that exceeds county lending limits. A jumbo loan typically has much stricter requirements as it is considered a higher risk loan. Borrowers need to have exceptional credit and larger down payments.
Jumbo Loan Qualification Requirements
Below are the basic qualification requirements for jumbo loans:
Jumbo loans require excellent credit history. Jumbo loans also have far stricter requirements on derogatory credit events such as bankruptcy.
In addition to having a large down payment, borrowers need to have substantial reserves. Reserves are funds in savings accounts that can be relied upon in the event that the borrower loses their employment.
When qualifying for a jumbo loan, you must have a strong employment history. If you have recently switched jobs it may difficult to qualify for a jumbo loan.
