A jumbo mortgage loan is a home loan whose amount exceeds the limit set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. In Pennsylvania, that limit is pegged at $647,200. If you take out a home loan that exceeds that, it will be considered a jumbo mortgage.

Jumbo mortgages are great because they allow borrowers to purchase high-end properties that they otherwise wouldn’t afford with a conventional loan. So if you’re thinking of purchasing a property in a high-cost county like Monroe or Collier, you may want to consider a jumbo mortgage. Our jumbo mortgage experts here at Moreira Team will help you qualify for the full amount. Give us a call, and we will take care of your jumbo mortgage needs.

Loan limit: the jumbo loan limit for Pennsylvania is $647,200, except for Pike County where it is $970,800.

Down payment: most lenders usually ask for 20% down, but you can still get a loan with 10% or even 5% down, particularly for the purchase of a residential property.

Mortgage insurance: lenders usually require borrowers to pay monthly mortgage insurance. But you can reduce the premium significantly by increasing the down payment.
