High-Income Physicians’ Guide: Securing Jumbo Loans

Jun 29, 2023

As a high-income physician, you might have set your sights on a luxury home that exceeds the conventional loan limits set by the Federal Housing Finance Agency. Enter the jumbo loan, a type of mortgage designed to finance luxury homes and properties in highly competitive real estate markets.

Understanding Jumbo Loans

Jumbo loans are larger than those allowed under conforming loan limits. They are designed for homebuyers looking at high-priced or luxury properties. Because of the larger amount being borrowed, jumbo loans can carry more risk for lenders and may have stricter qualification criteria.

Qualifying for a Jumbo Loan

To qualify for a jumbo loan, you’ll likely need a strong credit score, a low debt-to-income ratio, and a substantial down payment. You should be prepared to provide full documentation of your income and assets. Your lender may also require cash reserves equal to several months of mortgage payments.

Finding the Right Lender

Not all lenders offer jumbo loans, and those that do can have varying terms and interest rates. Shop around for a lender that offers competitive rates and understands the unique financial position of physicians.
