Jumbo loan down payment requirements have recently relaxed across Michigan as the housing market continues to expand. In fact, most home buyers can now borrow up to $2,000,000 with only a 5% down payment. This is great for those purchasing in higher costs neighborhoods in Lansing, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids and Detroit.
Please note that Michigan jumbo loan 95% financing only applies to primary & second home purchases. Investment homes will require a higher down payment of 20 percent or more. Below we discuss all the latest requirements and what you need to know before applying. Before we do that, let’s discuss the basics of the Jumbo mortgage.
Loan amounts are considered “Jumbo” when they exceed the conforming loan amounts set by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. Conforming loan limits top out to $453,100 for most of the country, but some high-cost regions are higher. Also known as a non-conforming loan, a jumbo loan often carries a slightly higher interest rate and may require a larger down payment and lower loan-to-value (LTV) ratio than a conventional mortgage.
The loan process (pre approval, underwriting, etc) is pretty much the exact same as conventional loan types. Michigan buyers looking to apply for a Jumbo loan can read the latest requirements below:
