What does this mean for home buyers?

Our hardworking and personable team can now continue our customizable services while offering products in the same ballpark as mega lenders. Having delegated jumbo underwriting allows us to offer the benefits of much improved pricing.

We can now offer rates up to, and possibly more than, a half point or lower, than what we could previously offer in certain scenarios. For example, one scenario of a 30-year-fixed mortgage loan we could offer went down from an interest rate of 5.875% to 5.25%. This is a real game changer for Direct Mortgage Loans and our clients!

What is a Jumbo Loan

A jumbo loan is a mortgage loan used to finance properties that are priced above the conforming loan limit. In 2022 (for most areas), the maximum amount for a conforming loan is $647,200, determined by the Federal Housing Finance Agency. This number may vary depending on the area where the property is located. If you are buying a home that exceeds the conforming loan limit, you may need a jumbo loan to finance your home.

If you are unsure what loan product you will need to finance your home, review the Find a Loan page.
