A Florida Jumbo loan is a mortgage loan amount above conventional conforming loan limits. In most of Florida, this limit is $484,350 – some locations in South FL (Monroe County, Key West) are even higher. This standard is set by the two governmental backed enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and sets the limit on the maximum value of an individual mortgage they will purchase from a lender.
When Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae max loan limits don’t cover the full amount, it is commonly known as a “jumbo loan”. The current jumbo mortgage starts at loan amounts greater than $484,350.
UPDATE: 95% Jumbo program now available in 2019 to all 50 states, please contact us below.
The average interest rates on jumbo mortgages are typically higher than for conforming mortgages. Why is this? Florida Jumbo loans are typically considered higher risk mortgages which account for the higher interest rates. This is because if a jumbo mortgage loan defaults, it may be harder to sell a luxury residence versus a standard priced house. Luxury properties are more vulnerable to market highs and lows. This is one of the main reasons most banks and lenders prefer to have a higher down payment from jumbo loan seekers.
