A jumbo home mortgage is a home loan that is in excess of $484,000 and a super jumbo mortgage is a home loan that exceeds $1 million dollars. Here at CambridgeHomeLoan, we can lend $10 million or more on your primary residence and vacation homes. We offer both jumbo mortgages, refinances, as well as cash out refinances.

Your Credit: Lenders compete for borrowers who have great credit, and the better the credit score that you have, the better the interest rate that you can earn on your home loan. To obtain a jumbo or a super jumbo mortgage home loan, you may need to have a credit score of over 700.
Your Debt to Income Ratio: Borrowers are required to be making more money than they’re spending. The borrowers debt obligations in total should only account for approximately 40 percent or less of your total income. Lenders seek borrowers who can pay their monthly interest, taxes, and insurance with their income.

Plan on putting down around 20 percent or more of the value of the home that you’re purchasing. If you’re borrowing a larger amount, you may have to put 25 to 30 percent down on your home. Call us if you are considering less than 20%.

Other factors: Our underwriters may also look at your income history, as well as your employment history, to assess the consistency of your income. If you’re considering quitting your job or switching jobs, it may be in your best interest to wait until after obtaining a mortgage loan.

Jumbo Mortgage FAQ
How do Jumbo Home Loans differ from traditional loans?
Unlike traditional loans, jumbo and super jumbo loans are completely privatized and they are not backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, government entities that secure mortgages. Because they are not subject to the same government guidelines, jumbo and super jumbo loans aren’t subject to some of the rules put forth by Freddie and Fannie. Since jumbo and super jumbo loans exceed the highest attainable traditional or conventional loan value ($453,100), these loans are not government backed.

What are reserves and why do they matter?
Reserves include all of the money that you have sitting in your financial accounts. Your lender will assess the amount of reserves that you have, and ensure that you have enough reserves to cover several months of mortgage payments to discourage a default in the event of uncertainty.
Can I use jumbo loan funds for a home remodel?
Yes, jumbo mortgages are available for home remodeling. You can utilize a jumbo home loan to fund certain home improvement projects. Talk with your lender here at CambridgeHomeLoan to learn more about jumbo loans for renovations.
Why is my lender requesting two appraisals?
For loans that exceed one million dollars, lenders often request an additional appraisal of the home to ensure that the property is truly worth the value at which it’s being purchased. Since the home serves as collateral to the lender, it’s important to have a fair assessment of the home value in the event that the borrower should default on their loan.
Is there more scrutiny if i borrow more money?
Yes, since your lender is assuming more of a risk, they will be more thorough in analyzing your financial situation. Once again, for loans exceeding one million dollars, your lender may require a lower debt-to-income ratio (DTI) and higher credit score from the home buyer than a conventional loan.
