Jumbo loans are available for condominiums (condos), planned unit developments (PUDs), single family residences (SFRs) and 2-4 unit investment properties in Oregon.

What if I want to borrow more?
Jumbo loans are non-conforming mortgage loans that allow you to borrow more than conforming loan limits allow...
Jumbo loans are portfolio mortgage loans; underwritten to a specific bank, lending institution, or investor’s guidelines. Portfolio loans, address the needs of borrowers, properties, and loan sizes that do not conform to Agency or Government loan standards. As home values in Oregon climb so does the need for higher mortgage loan amounts. When the need for mortgage financing exceeds conforming loan limits, jumbo loans allow you to borrower more for a home purchaser or mortgage refinance. Jumbo loans are most popular in the Portland, Eugene, Bend and Southern Oregon markets.

"Not only were the fees much lower than the broker I had originally planned to work with but the level of service was phenomenal. My real estate agent and the title company we worked with both praised Lumen for the thorough and efficient work they did. This was my first purchase in the US and David took the time to explain every step in the process and review every document with me personally. I could not have been happier and it is my pleasure to recommend them to anyone looking for a mortgage"

Charlotte W - Portland, Oregon

"Our loan officer was incredible. They stayed in constant contact with us during the entirety of the process. They dealt with every underwriting contingency in a timely manner and, despite all, closed on our original close date. Couldn't have done it without them. Literally. I hope to never buy a house again, but when I do, I'll be getting financing through Lumen. Awesome service!

Oregon Jumbo Loan Glossary

Conforming loans
A conforming loan is a mortgage that is equal to or less than the dollar amount established by the conforming-loan limit set by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) and meets the funding criteria of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.
Loan-to-Value (LTV)
Lenders use the loan-to-value ratio as a measure to compare the amount of your first mortgage with the appraised value of the property. The higher your down payment or equity, the lower your loan-to-value ratio.
Federal Home Finance Agency (FHFA)
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) was established by the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA) and is responsible for the effective supervision, regulation, and housing mission oversight of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac (the Enterprises) and the Federal Home Loan Bank System, which includes the 11 Federal Home Loan Banks (FHL Banks) and the Office of Finance. Since 2008, FHFA has also served as conservator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Non-conforming loans
Non-conforming loans are considered “Portfolio loans”. Portfolio loans are mortgage loans underwritten to a specific bank, lending institution, or investor’s guidelines. Portfolio loans are often designed to address the needs of borrowers, properties, and loan sizes that do not conform to Conventional or Government loan standards.
Conventional loans
A conventional loan is any mortgage loan that is not insured or guaranteed by the government (such as under Federal Housing Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, or Department of Agriculture loan programs). Conventional loans are categorized as conforming loans (underwritten to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac guidelines) non-conforming loans (Portfolio loans).
Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac (Agency Financing)
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were created by Congress. They perform an important role in the nation’s housing finance system – to provide liquidity, stability and affordability to the mortgage market. They provide liquidity (ready access to funds on reasonable terms) to the thousands of banks, savings and loans, and mortgage companies that make loans to finance housing.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac buy mortgages from lenders and either hold these mortgages in their portfolios or package the loans into mortgage-backed securities (MBS) that may be sold. Lenders use the cash raised by selling mortgages to the Enterprises to engage in further lending. The Enterprises’ purchases help ensure that individuals and families that buy homes and investors that purchase apartment buildings and other multifamily dwellings have a continuous, stable supply of mortgage money.
By packaging mortgages into MBS and guaranteeing the timely payment of principal and interest on the underlying mortgages, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac attract to the secondary mortgage market investors who might not otherwise invest in mortgages, thereby expanding the pool of funds available for housing. That makes the secondary mortgage market more liquid and helps lower the interest rates paid by homeowners and other mortgage borrowers.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac also can help stabilize mortgage markets and protect housing during extraordinary periods when stress or turmoil in the broader financial system threaten the economy. The Enterprises’ support for mortgage lending that finances affordable housing reduces the cost of such borrowing.
Fannie Mae was first chartered by the U.S. government in 1938 to help ensure a reliable and affordable supply of mortgage funds throughout the country. Today it is a shareholder-owned company that operates under a congressional charter.
Adjustable-Rate Mortgage (ARM)
A mortgage that does not have a fixed interest rate is called an adjustable-rate mortgage. The rate changes during the life of the loan based on movements in an index rate, such as the rate for The London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR) Index. Adjustable-Rate Mortgages usually indicate the minimum (floor) rate, the maximum rate, and the maximum, periodic adjustments of the loan. ARM loans may be fixed for a certain period and will begin adjusting once the fixed period has elapsed. The interest rate fluctuates over the life of the loan based on market conditions. When the index rate of an ARM loan increases, the mortgage rate (note rate) and payment (for principal and interest) increase as well.
Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)
Private Mortgage Insurance, also called PMI, is a type of mortgage insurance you might be required to pay for if you have a conventional loan. Like other kinds of mortgage insurance, PMI protects the lender—not you—if you stop making payments on your loan. PMI is arranged by the lender and provided by private insurance companies. PMI is usually required when you have a conventional loan and make a down payment of less than 20 percent of the home’s purchase price. If you’re refinancing with a conventional loan and your equity is less than 20 percent of the value of your home, PMI is also usually required.
