Jumbo Loans

If you would like to purchase property in Miami-Dade county which surpasses Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s conforming loan limits, you will need to apply for a jumbo loan. As of 2018, the loan limit is $453,100.

What Are the Jumbo Loan Requirements for Miami?

Because jumbo loans are larger and riskier for lenders, the requirements to qualify for them tend to be more stringent.

Your credit score should be 660 or higher.

It is possible to get approved for a Miami jumbo loan with a slightly lower score, but you will get the best offers with a higher score.

You should be prepared to make a down payment of anywhere from 10-20%.

Closing costs for jumbo loans are typically higher than they are for conventional loans as well.

If possible, try to apply with a debt-to-income ratio which is 45% or lower.

Own considerable assets? This requirement may not apply to you.

You need reserves to apply for a jumbo loan.

At a minimum, most lenders look for at least 6 months of reserve cash.

Miami Jumbo Loan Rates

Many borrowers may be concerned that jumbo mortgage rates in Miami will be excessive compared to conventional loan rates.

This is a common misconception about jumbo loans. There certainly are lenders out there that charge very high interest rates for jumbo loans, but at Lending Bankers Mortgage our Jumbo rates are comparable to what you would find for conventional loans.

One benefit of applying for a jumbo loan is that chances are good that you will not have to purchase private mortgage insurance (PMI). PMI is usually only required when you are making a lower down payment.

After a disaster of an experience with a major internet-driven mortgage company, I called Lending Bankers and spoke with David, who was refreshingly knowledgeable. I decided to work with himDavid... was able to tell me what he thought they could do, what would be required, how long it would take, and he and Gabriel were highly professional and responsive throughout the process.In the end, they delivered on exactly what they said they would, we closed quickly, and secured a rate that was better than what I had been quoted elsewhere. David got me out of a bind and delivered a great result.I am grateful and can't thank them enough. I would highly recommend Lending Bankers to anyone who wants to work with people who are trustworthy and competent.read more
