If you are applying for financing for the purchase of residential real estate, the amount of money you need will either be above or below the conforming loan limits which Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have established.
In situations where you do not need to borrow more than those limits, you can apply for Conventional financing. Otherwise, you will require a jumbo mortgage in California.
To help you figure out whether a jumbo loan is necessary, let’s go over the conforming loan limits in California. The conventional loan limits depend on the county where you are purchasing a home.

You may have heard it is more involved to apply for a jumbo loan than a conventional mortgage. This is true up to a point. The process is more rigorous, but is no more complex. These are the basic requirements:
Because jumbo loans involve lending larger sums, they are more risky to offer. This means that your credit score and DTI ratio will need to satisfy stricter requirements.
For the same reason, jumbo loans usually have higher down payment requirements than conventional loans. Instead of ranging up to around 20%, they may range as high as 30%. But if you have a competitive borrower profile overall, your down payment may not exceed what it would be for conventional loan.
Documenting cash reserves is also a requirement to qualify for a jumbo loan. You will need to show that you have 6 months to a year in reserves at the ready.
It is typical when applying for a jumbo loan to need two appraisals instead of one.
Before applying for a jumbo loan, it pays off to polish up your borrower profile as much as possible.
Jumbo loan mortgage rates may exceed those of conventional loans, but they also can be no higher if you know where to look.
