What is a VA Jumbo Loan?
- A VA Jumbo loan, considered a non-conforming loan, is a loan for an amount that exceeds the conventional loan limit.
- This limit is determined by the Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA) or Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC) guidelines. The limit for a conventional loan in 2018 is $453,100 for most of the U.S. and $679,650 in Hawaii and Alaska.
- The interest rate on a jumbo loan is usually higher than that of a conforming loan because the risks to the lender are higher. However, with VA this is not the case.
- Unlike non-conforming jumbo loan interest rates that usually run between .25% and .5% higher, VA jumbo loans are very competitive with current conforming rates.
Do VA jumbo loans require a down payment?
