Jumbo loan

Loans of $1 billion or more. Or, loans that exceed the statutory size limit eligible for purchase or securitization by the federal agencies.

Jumbo Loan

1. A mortgage loan so large it exceeds the limits for securitization by U.S. government mortgage banks. As such, a jumbo loan cannot be guaranteed or securitized by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae. Because of this, jumbo loans carry higher credit risk and have historically been traded at a premium to conventional mortgages.

2. A loan of $1 billion or more.
