What is a jumbo mortgage?

A jumbo mortgage is a home loan above the conforming loan limit, which is $766,550 in most counties in 2024. The conforming limit is greater in some counties with high housing costs, up to $1,149,825 in 2024. Mortgages for more than the conforming limit are jumbo loans.

How to find jumbo mortgage rates today

NerdWallet’s mortgage rate tool can help you find competitive jumbo mortgage rates today. In the comparison section above, enter the purchase price and down payment. (The loan amount, not the purchase price, should be above the conforming loan limit for a jumbo loan.) After clicking “Update results,” you can see a jumbo mortgage interest rate quote without providing personal information.

Jumbo mortgage rates vary by lender

Jumbo mortgages don't have to abide by some of the restrictions that are imposed on conforming loans. Each lender has leeway to offer its unique combination of interest rate and fees. For that reason, it is vital to shop and compare offers.

After you apply, each lender will provide you with a Loan Estimate form, a three-page document that details the interest rate, origination fees and closing costs. Comparing Loan Estimates from more than one lender will give you confidence that you’re getting the right loan for your situation.

When should you consider a jumbo mortgage?

You should consider a jumbo mortgage if you’re buying a high-priced home and are in a position to qualify for the more stringent requirements they carry, including a high credit score, and often a 20% down payment.
