About Non-Conforming Loans
A non-conforming loan is a loan that fails to meet bank criteria for funding. Reasons could include that the loan amount is higher than the conforming loan limit, lack of sufficient credit, the unorthodox nature of the use of funds, or the collateral backing it.
Jumbo or Non Conforming loans exceed the loan thresholds set by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Currently that limit is set at $417,000, however, there are certain “high cost” areas around the country that qualify for a temporary increase up to $625,500. Washington DC, Northern Virginia and parts of Maryland qualify for this increase. Therefore in this area, we are able to finance jumbo loans from $625,500 all the way up to $4,000,000. Jumbo loans can be fixed or adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs).
In Delaware, the max conforming limit is capped at $417,000.
