Jumbo loan exceeds a particular county’s conforming high-balance loan limits, or $ 726,526.00+. Jumbo loans tend to have more strict underwriting guidelines because they’re not guaranteed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. Instead, these loans are held by banks or private funds. The guidelines include lower debt-to-income (DTI) ratio requirements, larger down payment, larger cash reserve requirements, and higher FICO score requirements.
