Interest rates jumped a bit this week as the stock market has rallied. The industry standard for Jumbo loans these days has become a 25% down payment. While Jumbo ARM’s still carry competitive rates, it is hard to find 30 Year Fixed Jumbo under 6%. Jumbos also carry higher fico requirements (typically 720) and low debt to income ratios requirements (normally under 45%). The reason for all of this is that Jumbo loans (loans above 417k in Maricopa & Yavapai) are not government backed and therefore banks are on the hook for 100% of the loan. This means that in order to offer a Jumbo loan the lender will require that it is basically a perfect loan.
