Jumbo Home Loan FAQs

A jumbo home loan is a mortgage that exceeds the conforming loan limit set by national and/or local lending regulations. In South Carolina, this limit is currently $726,200. Jumbo loans are typically more expensive and more difficult to qualify for than traditional mortgages because they require a larger down payment (usually 20-25%), a higher credit score, and other mitigating factors such as proof of income and documentation of assets.

Rates for jumbo home loans in South Carolina may vary depending on your credit score, loan amount, and loan-to-value ratio. Generally speaking, jumbo rates are higher than conventional loan rates because they carry a greater risk for the lender. If you need to learn more about the rates, contact BrickWood Mortgage at (843) 314-4101.

While it can be more difficult to qualify for a jumbo loan than for a conventional loan, working with a reputable mortgage professional is the best way to increase your chances of success when applying for an appropriate  loan. As mentioned earlier, you will need a higher credit score, a larger down payment, and proof of income and documentation of assets to qualify. With the right help (BrickWood Mortgage), you’ll be guided through the process and get the loan you desire in no time.

In the United States, it is usually better to put at least 20% down on a home loan (if you can afford it) because this will generally save you in the long run as PMI costs can add thousands of dollars to your payments over the life of the loan. Putting 20% down also gives you a larger equity stake in the home which you may be able to leverage later if needed.
