Do you need a jumbo loan*?

Jumbo Conforming Seattle Loans

Jumbo Conforming SeattleUntil recently, mortgages were divided into conforming and non-conforming or ‘jumbo’ categories. Mortgages with loan amounts of $417,000 or less are still considered ‘conforming’. True jumbo loans typically carry a higher rate than smaller, conforming mortgages.

The good news for residents of King, Pierce and Snohomish counties is there is now a middle category called ‘jumbo conforming’, ‘super conforming’ or ‘high-balance conforming’. This category, available up to a maximum of $506,000 in these counties, typically provides borrowers with more options and better rates than ‘jumbo’ loans. While the rates are slightly higher in most cases than mortgages of $417,000 and less, the rates are typically much better than jumbo (over $506,000).

Seattle Mortgage Planners has access to a variety of lenders in the ‘jumbo conforming’ or ‘super conforming’ category.

Please call for us to review your specific circumstances and to better clarify the options available to you.

The market fluctuates, so the ‘jumbo conforming’ loans that are available now at competitive rates may not last. Act now… at the time of this writing, this category is not considered permanent and could be eliminated.
