First-Time Homebuyer

Risk Factor

You cannot get a jumbo loan as a first-time homebuyer.


But this is not the case. Even if you are buying your first home, you can apply for a jumbo loan. And you may be successful depending on your credentials.

Interest Rates

Risk Factor

You will pay a higher interest rate on a jumbo loan.


DSCR loan interest rates are comparable to conforming loans.

Hard To Qualify For

Risk Factor

Jumbo loans are hard to qualify for.


Jumbo loans are a bit more difficult to qualify for but not by very much as a credit score of 720 is fairly easy to achieve.

Buying A Modest Home

Risk Factor

You do not need a jumbo loan if you are not buying a mansion.


It is not uncommon for regular homes to require more financing to buy than you can obtain through the use of a conforming mortgage.

Super High Loan Minimum

Risk Factor

Jumbo loans require a super high loan minimum.


Jumbo loans don’t start at $1 million dollars. Instead, the minimum amount for a jumbo loan is anything above the conforming loan limit of $647,200.

Your Income

  • Provide copies of your pay stubs covering the most recent 30-day period and year-to-date.
  • Include copies of your W-2 forms for the last two years.
  • List names and addresses of all employers over the past two years.

  • Include a copy, front and back, of your work visa or green card.

If self-employed or receive commission or bonus, interest/dividends, or rental income

  • Include K-1 forms for all partnerships and S-Corporations from the last two years. Verify that your return includes these forms, as they are often not attached to the 1040.

  • If your ownership position is 25% or greater, provide completed and signed Federal Partnership (1065) and/or Corporate Income Tax Returns (1120) for the last two years. Include all schedules, statements, and addenda.

  • For those receiving Social Security income, Disability, or VA benefits, submit the award letter from the respective agency or organization.

Source of Funds and Down Payment

  • For the sale of your current home, submit a copy of the signed sales contract. If unsold, provide a statement or listing agreement. At closing, ensure you provide a settlement/closing statement.

  • For savings, checking, or money market funds, supply copies of bank statements covering the last 3 months.

  • If you have stocks and bonds, furnish copies of your broker statement or certificates.

  • If gifts contribute to your cash to close, include a Gift Affidavit and proof of funds receipt.

  • Depending on information in your application or credit report, additional documentation may be required.

  • Compile a roster detailing names, addresses, account numbers, balances, and monthly payments for all current debts, accompanied by copies of the most recent three monthly statements.
