New Jumbo Loan Programs North Carolina

Mortgage and Lending with Jumbo Loan Center

Property values have continued a nice rebound across North Carolina in recent years, especially Charlotte.  As a result, mortgage companies are starting to pull back on Jumbo loan qualifying requirements and allowing for higher loan to value. In fact qualified home buyers can now secure up to 95% Jumbo financing, only 5% down payment needed up to loan amounts of $2.0 mil. 


Let's discuss exactly what is considered a jumbo and some of LTV criteria. A Jumbo loan is a mortgage that exceeds the conforming loan limits of $484,350.  Some high-cost locations around the U.S. can exceed this limit (California, Florida, etc) but most of the nation the limit is at $484,350. Approved Charlotte home buyers can now secure Jumbo loans with only a 5% down payment. Also, current homeowners that have a Jumbo loan can refinance (non cash-out) up to 95% with no mortgage insurance.  Here is a break down of the latest jumbo loan guidelines: This applies to both Jumbo purchase and rate-term Jumbo refinance transactions.


  • 95% Loan to Value: Up to $2,000,000: min 700+ credit score. Buyers can choose from a single loan up to $2,000,000 or a 1st and 2nd mortgage (80/15/5) combo up to 2 million.  Most Jumbo options require NO monthly mortgage insurance (PMI) depending on the property states.
