A loan is considered jumbo if it exceeds the conforming and conforming high-balance loan limits.
The current conforming loan limit for a single-family home is $417,000 for all states - except Hawaii and Alaska, where it is $625,500
In federally designated high-priced markets in the continental United States, conforming high-balance limits range from $417,001 to $625,500 and, in designated markets in Hawaii, from $625,501 to $721,050. To note, conforming high-balance loans typically have higher interest rates, stricter underwriting and larger down payment requirements than standard conforming loans, but are generally priced lower than jumbo loans. Additionally, limits may be different for multi-unit properties.
