A Jumbo Loan is also known as a non-conforming loan as it does not conform to the specific rules of either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, two government agencies that guarantee loans. Specifically, there is a max limit that can vary depending on the location of the property. For 2021, if your loan is above $548,250, you likely would need a Jumbo Loan.
Types of Jumbo Loans
