A Florida Jumbo loan is a mortgage loan amount above conventional conforming loan limits. In most of Florida, this limit is $726,200 – 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 $726,200.
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.
