When you are applying for a loan, one of the first things you will need to consider is whether the amount you need to borrow is above or below the conventional loan limits established by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
So long as the financing that you need does not exceed those limits, you should be able to take out a conventional loan. This type of loan also can be referred to as a “conforming loan.”
To borrow a larger sum, you will need to look into a jumbo mortgage in California instead.
Conforming loan limits are set by county rather than by state. This is necessary because some counties are far more expensive to live in than others. In a state like California which has a number of high-cost areas, there can be quite a bit of variation in conventional loan limits from county to county.

The conventional loan limits in Los Angeles for 2019 are:
The 2019 San Francisco conforming loan limits are:

When you schedule your residential loan consultation with us, we can let you know whether it will be possible to finance your residential real estate purchase using a conforming loan or not in your county.
Either way, we are committed to bringing you the most competitive interest rates and terms for whichever type of loan you need.
When applying for conventional financing, the following criteria affect your loan offers:
Financial metrics such as your credit score and your debt-to-income ratio.
The down payment you make a loan.
These factors combine to give potential lenders an idea of how much risk they will be undertaking by offering you a mortgage. The more risky they perceive the loan to be, the more expensive the loan will be as well.
When your risk profile is favorable, however, you can expect interest rates and fees to be minimal in return.
Need advice on improving your DTI, credit score, and other aspects of your risk profile? This is something we can discuss with you in-depth during a consultation.
