If you’re in the market for a large home, it’s easy to find yourself in Jumbo Loan territory. Jumbo Loans aren’t huge, rare financing packages.  An average house in a hot market like Rochester Hills or Birmingham, or a slightly larger than average home in most townships will tip the scales.  Any loan over $424,000 is technically a Jumbo loan. And when Loan Officers at the big banks see Jumbo Loan, they start getting really finicky.

What is a Jumbo Loan?

A Jumbo Loan is, as we mentioned above, a loan over $424,000.  If you’re looking at a home worth $530,000, even a 20% down-payment puts in Jumbo Loan territory.  And just as an FYI, there are currently 63 homes in Rochester Hills, 194 homes in Birmingham, and 58 homes in Troy listed over $530,000. These aren’t uncommon loans.

Scary Loans

It’s almost October, so it’s time for spooky ghosts and wicked witches, but what really scares Loan Officers at big banks is the term Jumbo Loan. When banks have to lend out large sums of money, they start putting extra restrictions on your application. They start asking for more documents. And they start taking longer to process the paperwork.  And all of that causes you a big headache.
