A mortgage loan on a home where the loan amount exceeds the conforming loan limit of $453,100 (in most counties) which is set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored enterprises that buy loans from banks. As a result, the interest rates on these loans are greater because lenders don’t have the assurance that Fannie or Freddie will guarantee the purchase of the loans. Each year, Fannie and Freddie set the conforming loan limits by county. Currently, any loan greater than $453,100 is considered to be a Jumbo Loan. Typically, Jumbo Loans require a higher down payment than traditional loans and the Rates on jumbo loans are typically higher than conforming loans.
