Jumbo VA loans above these limits require a down payment of 25% of the difference between the conforming limit and the sales price. USDA loans do not have a loan limit but are limited based on debt to income and household income limits.
** High-Cost limits for areas in which 115% of the local median home value exceeds the baseline conforming loan limit. The maximum limit is 150% of the conforming loan limit. Limits can be higher in Hawaii, Alaska, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands
