Georgia Jumbo Loan

A jumbo mortgage loan is a loan whose amount exceeds the borrowing limit set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for conforming loans. The current limit in Georgia is $510,400 for a single-family unit, except for Greene County which has a limit of $515,200. So if you take a mortgage with an amount that exceeds that set limit you will have taken a jumbo mortgage.

Jumbo loans are necessary for many reasons, but the biggest advantage to you as a homebuyer is that they allow you to make high-cost home purchases. It is practically impossible to finance some types of homes in certain Georgia counties. A good example is Atkinson County where the average list price is $1,683,400. It is the highest by far but there are other counties like Fulton, Rabun, and Greene that also have very high listing prices ($579,309; $572,785 and $561,827 respectively).

The high value of a Georgia jumbo loan makes it riskier from the perspective of the lender. That is why you may face stringent qualification requirements compared to when you are applying for a conforming or government loan. For instance, 20% down payment is a common requirement, but some Georgia lenders can go as low as 10 or 15% as long as you have sufficient income and assets. Another common requirement is a FICO score of at least 680.

The stringent qualification standards don’t necessarily mean you can’t qualify for a Georgia jumbo loan with ease. If you have a good real estate company behind you, the whole process becomes much easier. In case you need help with your jumbo mortgage loan don’t look any further than Moreira Team.
