10 Percent Down Jumbo Mortgage


A “jumbo” (aka non-conforming) mortgage typically requires at least 20% down payment. Mortgage Master is now offering a non-conforming jumbo mortgage that will go up to a 90% loan to value (10% down payment) with lender paid mortgage insurance (lpmi). In the greater Seattle/King County area, jumbo mortgages are any loan amounts over $506,000 for a single family dwelling (this is also true for homes in Snohomish and Pierce County). In most other Washington state counties, the conforming loan limit is $417,000. Click here for a complete list of conforming loan limits in Washington state for 2014.

Based on a sales price of $833,500 and a loan amount of $750,000 for a home located in greater Seattle, the rate for 10/1 ARM Jumbo with 10% down, I’m quoting:

  • 4.875% (apr 4.393%) priced with 0.867 discount points.
  • $3,969.06 is the principal and interest payment based on a loan amount of $750,000 and rate of 4.875% for 10 years.
  • Rate will adjust at 121st month with a cap of 5% (cannot go higher or lower than 5%) and will adjust annually up or down by no more than 2% every year thereafter. The highest the rate can ever adjust to in the lifetime of this scenario is by 5% (9.875% = 4.875% plus 5.000%).  360 total monthly payments.
  • $83,500 down payment on a sales price of $833,500 is 10.018% down payment.
