What is a jumbo loan?

Jumbo loans are used to finance homes with loans exceeding the loan limits set by government sponsored entities (GSEs). It is suitable for borrowers who want to buy luxury homes or refinance existing large mortgages. Jumbo loans allow you to have larger loans because it does not conform to the requirements set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

What benefits do jumbo loans have?

  1. Jumbo loans can assist you in borrowing the money needed to purchase pricier properties.
  2. You can choose from a variety of different loan programs that may give you flexibility on your loan terms.
  3. You can borrow a higher amount for a home in single loan instead of breaking it up into smaller loans.

Eligibility

You may be eligible to qualify for a jumbo loan if you can meet these requirements:

  • Have a decent credit score (680 and above)
  • Have a low debt-to-income (DTI) ratio (under 43% at least)

Frequently Asked Questions

First, you will need to submit a mortgage application with us, either in person, by phone, or using our easy-to-use online form, whichever makes you feel more comfortable. One of our licensed loan officers will get in touch with you and discuss your mortgage needs and objectives with you. Next, we will check your credit scores and request you to submit the necessary supporting documents so that we can verify your identity, the source of your income, and your current debt for underwriting purposes. An appraisal will also be performed on your selected property. Once you have submitted all the documents and your loan is approved with no outstanding items, we will then prepare the closing documents so that you can get ready to sign your loan package. After your loan is funded, you are on your way to move into your new home.
No, Sun West does not charge an application fee for you to apply for a mortgage.

Sun West has one of the fastest turnaround times in the industry, and we offer 20 day closings, but every borrower’s situation is different, and due to documentation requirements and varying response times from the borrower, the average time to close a loan may be higher.

A mortgage refinance refers to obtaining a new loan for the purpose of lowering your mortgage payments, converting your existing loan into a more affordable or manageable loan, or getting cash out on available equity on your home. There may be a minimum waiting period from the date you closed your previous mortgage, based on the type of refinance you are applying for. Sun West also recommends that you check with your existing lender regarding any prepayment penalties. There will be fees involved when refinancing your home, although you may have the option of rolling these costs into your new loan.

Most types of mortgages require a minimum amount of down payment, except for VA and USDA programs. You may also be eligible for down payment assistance programs that can help you towards minimum down payment requirement on some of the loan programs. On Conventional Mortgages, your lender will require you to pay a Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) premium as part of your monthly payments if you put down less than 20% of the purchase price of the property. There are government loan programs available with less stringent down payment requirements as well, such as an FHA loan that will require only a 3.5% down payment, but again, these programs also require mortgage insurance premiums. Finally, keep in mind that the amount of down payment you put down for a house will also affect your Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratio, which could then affect the amount of loan you are able to qualify for, or whether or not you will qualify at all.
