The initial interest rate on Jumbo Loans is usually predetermined by market conditions but may be higher than conventional loans as well. It can also take longer for a borrower to build their equity in the property which could make them ineligible should they want or need to refinance before paying off the entire balance due (reserves). If someone has limited funds available for closing costs versus what they would like, then refinancing might not be an option until after all payments are made on time every month, so they could have the funds to cover closing costs.
Should you get a Jumbo Loans
Jumbo loans are perfect for those individuals who have a considerable amount of equity in their homes. In addition, they may also be worth considering if you qualify because there is no down payment and the interest rates will be lower than what’s found with an FHA or VA loan.
If you’re looking to buy a home that costs between $200 – 800 thousand dollars then it might not make sense to take out jumbo loans unless your credit score/income requirements meet certain underwriting guidelines which would include having at least 20% down on the property (or some other type of collateral), being able to repay the monthly payments without issue, as well as meeting all DTI qualifications.
For those who have an excellent credit score, the jumbo loan rates are some of the best that is on offer. To get a Jumbo Loan you need to meet certain requirements:
- 20% down payment or other collateral (such as stocks/bonds)
- high enough income for repayment without issue
- good credit history.
