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.
