Jumbo loans are perfect for buying a new home with a larger-than-average price tag.
A jumbo loan is one where the loan amount is over the conforming limit. Because such a large amount is being borrowed lenders often charge slightly higher interest rates for these loans. That conforming loan limit varies based on your location and is higher in areas of the country with higher housing prices.
Key Features of Jumbo Loans
Only 5%-15% and No Mortgage Insurance
Several other jumbo loan programs make it a requirement for borrowers to put 20% down. At Southern Trust, we have a 5/5 Jumbo ARM loan which allows qualified borrowers to put as little as 5% down with no MI!
Use a Jumbo Loan to Purchase or Refinance
Our jumbo loan programs give the borrowers maximum flexibility, allowing you to use it when purchasing a new home or refinancing your current one.

With our jumbo loan, qualified borrowers can purchase single family homes, townhomes, 2 to 4 unit properties, and condos!
Jumbo Loan Overview
A jumbo loan can be classified as a loan in which the loan amount exceeds the conforming limit. Interest rates for these loans, however, tend to be slightly higher because there is such a large amount being borrowed from the lenders. Additionally, conforming loan limits are based on the borrower’s location. Areas that have more expensive priced houses often have a higher limit.
