FHA Jumbo Loans

Borrowing the FHA Loan Maximum Amount

New FHA / HUD Guidelines will insure new increased loan amounts based on your county and state. That means you can take advantage of new maximum loan limits for FHA loans. Qualifying customers can now apply for an FHA Jumbo Loan up to the maximum allowed by FHA. You can apply for a home loan with 3.5% down under new FHA loan limits.

A sampling of FHA approved lenders show the following qualifying guidelines:

  1. Qualified borrowers pay for closing costs plus down payment covering the 3.5% statutory minimum.
  2. Standard FHA guidelines and regulations apply, yet many lenders do require a 580 FICO score.
  3. For greater loan amounts on purchases, minimum FICO scores increase to 600 on Purchase, Rate / Term refinances and to 640 on cash-out refinances.
  4. Maximum Debt to Income Ratio's are 43% on the back end.
  5. No down payment assistance on loan amounts over $484,350.
  6. No non traditional credit.
  7. Declining Markets: Two appraisals will be required when the loan amount, excluding upfront MIP, will exceed $484,350 and the LTV equal to or greater than 95%.
