A Jumbo Loan is one that is bigger than the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac limits. This is the type of loan you need if you’re planning on purchasing a larger, more expensive home. As of 2022, the limit is $647,200 for most of the US, apart from Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, where the limit is $970,800.
Obviously, if you want to purchase a home that is more expensive than the limit, you’ll need to get a Jumbo Loan. Of course, a Jumbo Loan does generally come with a higher interest rate because there is greater risk on the part of the lender, so every penny you can save will be important.
