First-Time Homebuyer

Risk Factor

You cannot get a jumbo loan as a first-time homebuyer.

Solution

But this is not the case. Even if you are buying your first home, you can apply for a jumbo loan. And you may be successful depending on your credentials.

Interest Rates

Risk Factor

You will pay a higher interest rate on a jumbo loan.

Solution

DSCR loan interest rates are comparable to conforming loans.

Hard To Qualify For

Risk Factor

Jumbo loans are hard to qualify for.

Solution

Jumbo loans are a bit more difficult to qualify for but not by very much as a credit score of 720 is fairly easy to achieve.

Buying A Modest Home

Risk Factor

You do not need a jumbo loan if you are not buying a mansion.

Solution

It is not uncommon for regular homes to require more financing to buy than you can obtain through the use of a conforming mortgage.

Super High Loan Minimum

Risk Factor

Jumbo loans require a super high loan minimum.

Solution

Jumbo loans don’t start at $1 million dollars. Instead, the minimum amount for a jumbo loan is anything above the conforming loan limit of $647,200.

Components of Closing Costs

Closing costs may vary depending on factors such as the location of the property and the specific transaction. However, here are some standard components of closing costs:

  • Loan-related fees: Origination fees, application fees, and points (if applicable).
  • Title-related fees: Title search, title insurance, and recording fees.
  • Appraisal fees: Cost associated with property appraisal.
  • Inspection fees: Costs for home inspections and other necessary inspections.
  • Attorney fees: Fees for legal representation during the closing process.
  • Escrow fees: Charges for managing the funds and documents during the closing process.
  • Property taxes and insurance: Prorated taxes and insurance premiums.

Factors Affecting Closing Costs

  • Property Value: Closing costs are often a percentage of the property's sale price. Higher-priced properties may result in higher closing costs.
  • Location: Closing costs can vary based on the location of the property. Different states or regions may have different fees, taxes, and regulations that impact the overall closing costs.
  • Loan Amount: The size of the loan can influence closing costs. Certain fees, such as loan origination fees, maybe a percentage of the loan amount.
  • Lender Requirements: Lenders may have specific requirements and fees associated with the loan, such as appraisal fees, underwriting fees, or mortgage insurance premiums.
  • Property Type: The type of property being purchased can impact closing costs. For example, condominiums may have additional fees for homeowners' association (HOA) documents or transfer fees.
