A jumbo mortgage is a high balance loan that exceeds the standard conforming loan limits established by entities like Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. In most U.S. locations, the current conventional loan limit for 2021 is $548,250. These limits can change at the end of each year.
Select high-cost locations in parts of New York, Colorado, Florida, San Francisco, Los Angeles California, DC and the North East have higher conventional loan limits up to $822,375. Please see the chart below. Any loan amount exceeding these conforming loan limits would be considered a jumbo loan.
