Jumbo Loans exceed the maximum loan amounts established by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac conventional loan limits. Rates on jumbo loans are typically higher than conforming loans. Jumbo Loans are typically used to buy more expensive homes and high-end custom construction homes. Typically Jumbo Loans require a higher down payment than traditional loans.
VA Jumbo Loans
This same formula works for any loan amount. If a veteran exceeds the VA loan limit by $100,000, he or she would make a 25% down payment on that amount. The required down payment is typically much lower than down payments for conventional jumbo loans.
