Loans between $726,200 and $977,500 in San Diego County are considered high-balance conforming loans.  High-balance loans tend to have slightly higher interest rates than loans under $726,200 (“low-balance”) and can have slightly tighter qualifying guidelines.

If you can keep your loan under $726,200 by either putting enough down and/or keeping your sales price low enough, you will be rewarded with a lower interest rate and payment.

Loans above $977,500 in San Diego County would be considered a jumbo loan.  Big banks and credit unions tend to have the most competitive rates on jumbo loans.  As a mortgage broker, we are most competitive on conforming loans, which are loans under $977,500 in San Diego County

Having said this, as a mortgage broker, we can offer jumbo loans with easier qualifying guidelines, and we have the ability to close jumbo loans in as little as 15 days.  Most big banks and credit unions have difficulty closing quickly, and their guidelines will certainly be tighter. (lower debt-to-income ratio requirements, higher reserve requirements…etc.)

If you are looking for a jumbo loan, we can either refer you to a jumbo lender with the best rates, or we would be happy to give you a hand if we are a better fit for you.
